"The Waiting" by Suzanne Woods Fisher

Lancaster County Secrets Book 2

The Waiting (Lancaster County Secrets, Bk 2)

Book Description:

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?

My Thoughts:

I really, really liked this book.  The beginning of the book is full of heartbreak and lonliness but slowly transforms into something beautiful.

I enjoyed reading about Caleb's attempts at housekeeping and the antics of the rest of the Zook household.

I loved that Jorie worked with breeding horses.  I've never read another Amish book where a woman had such a untypical vocation.

I loved the sweet romance that unfolds until...wham....  I won't tell you what happens because that would just ruin the fun of it.

I really didn't know what was going to happen after the "big surprise".  I was very pleased with how it worked out though.  

It made me sigh, when I finished it.  What better praise could be given a book.

The next book in the series is "The Search" and I can't wait to read it!
