The Revealing by Suzanne Woods Fisher

No one does Amish fiction like Suzanne Woods Fisher. She ROCKS! She reveals the heart of the character. She takes us to places unknown and brings out a fresh new perspective about love, life, and faith. 

Her writing is easy to get absorbed in. Yes, it's that type of novel that you let everything else go and grab every bit of extra reading time you can. 

I loved returning to Eagle Hill. I missed out on the first book in the series, "The Lesson", but was able to catch up in book two, "The Calling", (check out my review). I encourage you to read these novels in order as a series. You are able to capture so much more about the characters and as Suzanne brings this wonderful series to a conclusion we are able to have a greater understanding about the choices they have made and where they are today. 

I've been blessed to read many novels penned by Suzanne. I can tell you that you will never be disappointed by choosing a Suzanne Woods Fisher novel. The title truly gives great meaning. There is much revealed in this third and final visit to Eagle Inn. These characters are so charming, warm and loving. Kindness flows from their very actions. But as we see, we all struggle at times. Secrets take hold. Do we share? Do we keep hiding things so others don't become wounded? Yes, within the kindness of the heart of these characters, striving to live godly lives, we see the real struggle that they too face. 

Forgiveness is a key aspect in this final book. So much has happened. I found this novel to hold a bit of mystery. We see the characters transform, but we also see them transparent. When hearts become humble, God is allowed the room He needs to bring about change. 

A love story, yes, but there is so much more. Family issues are very real. I must admit I am sad to see these characters go. This series carries such valuable life lessons. I admire writers who pen a life changing story. A story that is able to make the reader ponder their own life and just how they would respond if this was their life. This is a gift that Suzanne has. 

If you are a lover of Amish fiction this is a selection you are going to enjoy. If you have never read Amish fiction before, this series is a perfect place to start!

This novel was a gift from Revell for sharing my review with you.
