About The Book: Book one in Suzanne’s brand new series; The Inn at Eagle Hill. 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.

My Thoughts On The Book: I read the book from front to back in one sitting. I could not put it down and the wee hours of the morning slipped up on me without me knowing. The characters Suzanne Woods Fisher paints are well developed and life-like. She is a master wordsmith. In The Letters, Suzanne Woods Fisher provides a great beginning to The Inn at Eagle Hill series set in Stoney Ridge. I cannot wait for the next book. I did find that several of the characters from her Stoney Ridge series appear in The Letters which adds, a comfortable air of familiarity. As always this story is captivating as it unfolds with a story of a life extremely challenging, a steadfast faith, and commitment to family. This particular book ventures away from the traditional Amish novel and it is based on a real-life story.
