Review of The Haven
by Suzanne Woods Fisher
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.
My thoughts on The Haven:
I cried many tears as I read book one in the Stoney Ridge Seasons series, The Keeper, and I was so excited to get to spend more time with the delightful Lapp family in The Haven! I was not disappointed in this book but I am ready for more! I am eager to find out what happens next in the lives of the characters. What a precious book with many valuable lessons on forgiveness. There are many secrets that are brought to light and truth for the characters of the book, but I won't spoil the book for you, for you must read it for yourself!
