About the book

Book 2 in The Lancaster Secrets collection and hot on the heals of the best-selling The Choice, The Waiting, a stand alone story, is a compelling page turner. Jorie King has been waiting for Benjamin Zook to return home to Lancaster County so they can marry. When news arrives that Ben has been killed, Jorie finds comfort in the friendship of his brother Caleb. That friendship ripens into love, and it seems that they are meant to be together. But when the unexpected happens, their worlds are turned upside down once more. Will Jorie trust God to lead her into the arms of a new man?

A multifaceted story about complex people living the simple life. Readers will find themselves transported into the world of the Amish and deeply invested in these wonderful characters. 

Who is Suzanne Woods Fisher?

Suzanne Woods Fisher is the CBA bestselling author of The Choice, The Waiting, Amish Peace, and Amish Proverbs. 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. Benedict eventually became publisher of Christianity Today magazine. Suzanne is the host of a radio show called Amish Wisdom and her work has appeared in many magazines. She lives in California. Find out more about Suzanne at

My Thoughts

This is the second book of the Lancaster County Secrets.     Part of me was expecting to follow the characters from the previous book.  Imagine my surprise when I discovered that the books are not really linked and that new characters and a new story was within the pages of this book.  I guess I was expecting a trilogy or something.   I got reminded that not all authors work the same way which is also fine.

Okay.   So I started reading it.   The characters are loveable and a variety of events happen to change their lives in various ways.   Death, love, the war, and much more are the themes you will find in this second instalment of the Lancaster County Secrets.    Secrets are meant to be discovered and dealt with.   

If you love Amish novels, I recommend this book.    You will love the characters and the storyline.    This book would be a wonderful gift for someone in your family who loves to read.
