The Waiting

The Waiting

October, 2010/320 pages/$14.99

She was waiting for love--and found it in the most unexpected place.

Jorie King's life is on hold. She has been waiting for Ben Zook to return to Lancaster County. Waiting for him to settle down and join the church. Waiting to marry him.

But when news arrives that Ben has been killed, Jorie is devastated. She finds unlikely comfort in the friendship of his brother Caleb. Friendship ripens into love, and two broken hearts plan for a life filled with the promise of a fresh beginning--until their worlds are turned upside down.

With her realistic characters whose weaknesses develop into strengthes, Suzanne Woods Fisher offers a reading experience that rises above the others. You will love growing in spirit with these complex people living the simple life as The Waiting transports you into a world where things aren't as simple as they seem.

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. Find out more about Suzanne at her website.

Suzanne Woods Fisher is one of my must-read authors. The Waiting is another stellar book from her hand. I had a hard time putting this book down, and it kept my attention riveted until the last page. While it isn't a suspense book, Suzanne managed to keep me in suspense over the resolution of the story until the last pages. This is a beautiful story of family, friendship, love, and loyalty, all under the umbrella of trust in God's sovereignty and care. There are a plethora of Amish books on the market, but this one stands out as one of the best.

You are so right! It wasn't a suspense book, but I spent a lot of time holding my breath and wondering how everything was going to turn out well. Then, instead of turning out well, it turned out like real life -- some good, some bad and we all move forward.
