The Search

The Search by Suzanne Woods Fisher
 I love reading stories that deal with the Amish life.    This book is not an exception.  When I started reading, I found that this books was different than all the others I have read in the past.  It was a refreshing read.  Most of the time I can read and figure out the end of a book before I get there.   I can say that this did not happen this time to me.

Lainey O'Toole finds herself back into town were fifteen years earlier she made a chose that changed her life.    

Bess Reihl finds herself in town helping her very intimidating grandmother  Bertha, recover from surgery or so she thinks.  Bertha is a very funny character.   She talks Bess into stealing the sheriff's car not once but three times. (very funny scene in the story, if I do say so!)

Bertha has her own reasons why she wants Bess in town.... but you have to read the story to find out. ( I'm not going to give away it away!)

(excerpt form the release)
Beautifully written, The Search is a skillfully woven story that takes readers through unexpected twists and turns on the long country road toward truth. Fans both old and new will find themselves immersed in this heartwarming—and surprising—tale of young love, forgiveness, and coming to grips with the past.

I could not have said any better. 

I enjoyed reading The Search.  I laughed and wondered why the characters were acting strangely... then I found out...
