The Waiting by Suzanne Woods Fisher

The Waiting is the newest Amish fiction from author Suzanne Woods Fisher. In this novel we find Jorie King waiting for her love, Ben Zook, to return home. Thoughts of marriage fill her heart and she's devastated to learn that he'll never return home alive. Meanwhile, Ben's brother Caleb is going through a trial of his own as he stands beside his cancer stricken wife until she passes on. Caleb and Jorie turn to each other for companionship and comfort and find something more. But life is never as easy at is appears to be and more trials are on their way for this young couple.

Suzanne writes characters that are realistic and engaging. This bittersweet story will hold your attention and make you thankful for the life and love that you have. Return to Lancaster County where life appears simpler but never really is.

This is another CLEAN READ, thanks, Suzanne, for giving us fiction that we can read without blushing!

About the author:
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

Hi Suzanne!

I'm a little late on popping by...I was out of town helping my daughter last week with her new baby. I had a few minutes to spare and wanted to thank you for your review of "The Waiting." Glad you liked the G-rated-ness. I'm a G-rated kind of gal! "The Search" is coming in about 6-7 weeks!
Thanks for being a part of the tour, too.
