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.
I am never disappointed with Suzanne's books, especially her Amish fiction. This book is certainly no exception! She paints her characters' personalities so well, it's as if you know them in person. Rose is independent, which is not common for a woman in the Amish world. She does receive some grief for her choices, but in the end her friends and family stand by her. As she enters into the venture of her inn, she meets many surprises that even the reader cannot hope to expect! The entire book is a joy to read and continues expressing Suzanne's warm writing style. Definitely check it out!
