The Search by Suzanne Woods Fisher & My Review

As a child caught up in a crisis, Lainey O'Toole made a split-second decision with far-reaching effects. Fifteen years later, when her car breaks down in Stoney Ridge - the very town in which that decision was made - she is forced to face the past and discover how her decision has impacted so many.

Bess Reihl is less than thrilled to be spending the summer at Rose Hill Farm helping her intimidating grandmother Bertha recover from surgery. It doesn't take long for Bess to realize that her grandmother coaxed her to Stoney Ridge for an entirely different reason. But once Bess meets hired hand Billy Lapp, the summer starts to hold some promise.

Lainey's and Bess's worlds are about to collide, and the secrets that come to light will shock them both.

Suzanne Woods Fisher is the best-selling author of The Choice and The Waiting. Her interest in the Anabaptist cultures can be directly traced to her grandfather, W.D. Benedict, who was raised in the Old Order German Baptist Brethren Church in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. Suzanne is the host of the popular internet radio show Amish Wisdom and lives in California.

My Review:
I read this book in a couple of hours! It was easy to read, and it kept me wanting to find out what was going to happen next. I loved that Bess is pretty mature, and that she just continues to grow in maturity over the summer.
Bertha is a character! She made me laugh at times, but also made me appreciate her deep morals and loving heart. It was pretty funny to see Bess becoming a bit like her grandmother at times.
I will definitely be recommending this book (as well as the rest in the series) to my family and friends :)
