The Waiting - Book Review with Giveaways!

About The Waiting:
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.

My Personal Opinion:

I was so excited when I received this book to review. So excited in fact that I had to borrow the first book in the series from my Mother In Law! I will openly admit that I drug out the reading of this book. I didn't want it to end and found myself rationing my pages to make the book last as long as possible!

Suzanne has a brilliant mind and through the emotions on her pages, she draws you right into the book along with the characters. I found myself completely understanding exactly where each character was coming from. I sympathized with their troubles and I rooted for them each step along the way! From young Ephriam to Sylvia, the Sister In Law, I knew and understood the emotions they were dealing with. I've never been quite so drawn to a group of characters in my life.

I would love to have Jorie, Marge, Cal and even the Aunties over for lunch! This is such an authentic cast that you will want to savor every moment that you have between the pages and I guarantee that you will not loan this book to anyone who might not return it!

This series sounds great--I've read several books about the Amish and loved them. When I lived in Wilmington, I used to go with my sister to shop in Lancaster and we liked to take the back roads because we usually met some of the Amish folks. I also remember how exemplary they were in practicing what they preach in the incident when the children were killed in the school shooting.

Loved your review!!! And you noticed the Aunties!!! I haven't heard any comments about them...but I just loved those two little dotty dears. Thanks so much for your warm and encouraging words. I had to smile about the part about my brilliant mind...I'm so so not brilliant!!

Warmly, Suzanne Fisher
