this post contains affiliate links



Book 2 in The Lancaster Secrets collection and hot on the heals of the best-selling The Choice. The Waiting, a stand alone story, is a compelling page turner. Jorie King has been waiting for Benjamin Zook to return home to Lancaster County so they can marry. When news arrives that Ben has been killed, Jorie finds comfort in the friendship of his brother Caleb. That friendship ripens into love, and it seems that they are meant to be together. But when the unexpected happens, their worlds are turned upside down once more. Will Jorie trust God to lead her into the arms of a new man? 

A multifaceted story about complex people living the simple life. Readers will find themselves transported into the world of the Amish and deeply invested in these wonderful characters.

About the Author:

Suzanne Woods Fisher is the CBA bestselling author of The Choice, The Waiting, Amish Peace, and Amish Proverbs. Her interest in the Anabaptist cultures can be directly traced to her grandfather, W. D. Benedict, who was raised in the Old Order German Baptist Brethren Church in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. Benedict eventually became publisher of Christianity Today magazine. Suzanne is the host of a radio show called Amish Wisdom and her work has appeared in many magazines. She lives in California.

My Thoughts:


I never read books that are set in modern day. I'm more a historical fiction type of reader. I've never been drawn to reading anything related to the Amish.

When I signed up for The Waiting, I thought that it would be a good book to try.  When I didn't get the email about not being chosen for the review, I forgot about it. So of course, when I got the message that I had been chosen, I was surprised! ~ Does that make sense?

What can I say? I could not put the book down. I read the book in two days. The way Suzanne writes had me right on the sidelines watching the daily lives of the characters in the the book.


I received this book for free from Litfuse in return for my honest opinion in this review.
