February 4, 2014 - Amy Phelps
Suzanne Woods Fisher tells the story of a young Amish woman helping elderly sisters not only clean out their house but serve those in need in "The Calling."
Bethany Schrock's life is in upheaval after her heart is broken by charmer and rogue Jake Hertzler. She is helping her mother run the Inn at Eagle Hill and is helping five elderly Amish sisters clean out their house. She soon learns that the women prepare food and volunteer at a local community project for the homeless and for a shelter for wayward young women. Thanks to the sisters and the new guest at the inn, a young woman minister suffering a crisis of faith of her own, Bethany finds herself roped in to helping. And her younger sister, Mim, has taken to writing letters of advice to people beliving the Inn has some sort of magical way of solving crisis. A local newspaper would like to publish her like an advice column, and Mim would like to make a little extra money, but is she good at solving others problems? As Bethany keeps running into Jimmy Fisher who enjoys flirting and teasing her, and Mim secretly pines for fellow classmate, Danny, will the women of the Inn all find a romance?
The characters are all well drawn and thoughtful, who have their own flaws and dreams, which makes them come alive and more real. Readers will enjoy this warm story of service, surprises and friendship.
"The Calling" is published by Revell. It is $14.99.
