About the Book: 
When Sadie Lapp steps off the bus in Stoney Ridge after being in Ohio for the winter, she is faced with a decision–one that goes against her very essence. Yet it’s the only way she can think of to protect a loved one.

Schoolteacher Gideon Smucker has been crazy about Sadie since boyhood. But his response to her surprising decision undermines his own reputation–and his relationship with Sadie.

College student Will Stoltz is spending the spring at the Lapp farm as a guard for a pair of nesting Peregrine Falcons–courtesy of the Lancaster County Game Warden. Will needs to get his life back on track, but his growing friendship with Sadie threatens his plans.

The lives of these three individuals intertwine, and then unravel as unexpected twists create ripples through the town of Stoney Ridge . . . and through Sadie’s heart.

Once again, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher intrigues and delights with a story that explores the bonds of friendship, family, and true love. Readers will enjoy every surprise in Sadie’s story as they search for the truth hidden within these pages.

Read an excerpt!

Suzanne Woods Fisher creates a town that we all want to live in. Her characters are thoughtful, caring, and full of life. I love the feeling that Amish Fiction leaves me with as I read, drawing me into a time of simpler, yet giving me ideas for my own family to slow down. I often finish one of her books and have the desire to make biscuits and sit a spell with the kids. Though their lifestyle is 'simple' they struggle with  much of the same emotional baggage as we do. Sadie has been friends with Gid for as long as she can remember and he assumes she knows he cares. Will, and Englisher is at the farm for the summer guarding the chicks, and finds himself falling for Sadie as well.
Her heart is so big, so caring for everyone around her. She grows in the story and becomes one of those respected women that many in the town come to for advice. Fantastic character development, as Suzanne's books always are!
Meet Suzanne: 
Suzanne Woods Fisher’s interest in the Amish began with her grandfather, W.D. Benedict, who was raised Plain. Suzanne has a great admiration for the Plain people and believes they provide wonderful examples to the world. In both her fiction and non-fiction books, she has an underlying theme: You don’t have to “go Amish” to incorporate many of their principles–simplicity, living with less, appreciating nature, forgiving others more readily– into your life.

When Suzanne isn’t writing or bragging to her friends about her first new grandbaby (!), she is raising puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind.

To Suzanne’s way of thinking, you just can’t take life too seriously when a puppy is tearing through your house with someone’s underwear in its mouth. Suzanne can be found on-line at: www.suzannewoodsfisher.com.

  1. Hi Melanie! Loved your comments about "The Haven!" Just made me smile when I read the part about wanting to slow down and sit a spell after reading a book of mine. Loved that! Thanks for being a part of the blog tour and sharing my book with your readers. Warmly, Suzanne
