“One thorn of experience is worth more than a wilderness of advice or warning.” Amish proverb
Bethany Schrock in The Letters is at an unsettled age. She has one foot in the Amish world, the other in the English world, and she’s not sure which one is the better fit. The only job she could find was waitressing at the Stoney Ridge Bar & Grill (a very non Amish-y place), and she soon discovered she got better tips if she wore English clothing. Bethany has her secret work life under control, hidden from her oh-so-proper grandmother . . . until Jimmy Fisher, as irritating as a pebble in her shoe and far too handsome for his own good, pokes his nose into her business. No thanks to Jimmy, everything comes crashing down on Bethany.
Bethany was dabbling in a world she wasn’t raised for. While the scenario in Letters is distinctly Amish, most every teen goes through a period of testing limits and trying on a new identity.
What do you remember feeling about pushing the boundaries of your parents’ comfort zones when you were a teen?
Looking back, how valuable were those times when you tested limits?
How dangerous were they?
What do you wish your parents had done differently . . . and would it have made a difference?
Perhaps, as in Bethany’s case, experience might have been the best teacher.
Welcome to a place of unconditional love and unexpected blessings…
Rose Schrock is a plain woman with a simple plan. Determined to find a way to support her family and pay off her late husband’s debts, she sets to work to convert the basement of her Amish farmhouse into an inn. While her family, especially her cranky mother-in-law, is unhappy with Rose’s big idea, her friend and neighbor, Galen King, supports the decision and he helps with the conversion. As Rose finalizes preparations for visitors, she prays. She asks God to bless each guest who stays at the Inn at Eagle Hill. As the first guest arrives and settles in, Rose is surprised to discover that her entire family is the one who receives the blessings, in the most unexpected ways. And she’s even more surprised when that guest decides to play matchmaker for Galen King.
With her signature plot twists combined with gentle Amish romance, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher invites readers back to Stoney Ridge for fresh stories of simple pleasures despite the complexity of life. Fisher’s tale of God’s providence and provision will delight her fans and create many new ones. Welcome to the Inn at Eagle Hill.
