The Inn at Eagle Hill ~ Book 1
By Suzanne Woods Fisher
When newly widowed Rose Schrock needs to find a way to support her family, an overheard conversation seems to be an answer to her prayers. A couple in need of a place to stay for the night opens Rose's eyes to the need of an inn in Stoney Ridge.
With the need to pay off her late husband's debts and needing to care for her ailing mother-in-law, in addition to her children most would think that Rose already had more than she could handle. But with the help and encouragement of her neighbor, Galen King Rose is able to open the Inn at Eagle Hill.
But The Letters is more than a story about a bed and breakfast. It is a story of a family struggling to come to terms with the sudden and unexpected changes that have come into their lives. Rose uses her gift of caring to help others, including the hurting people who come to her home seeking rest. Her caring brings unexpected blessings and Eagle seems to be a place of miracles.
Some of your Stoney Ridge favorites are back, though in minor background characters. The Letters brings back Jimmy Fisher who may finally start to grow-up while under the guidance of Galen King. And Jimmy has some more adventures with horses (If you've read Suzanne Woods Fisher's Stoney Ridge Seasons series you know what I'm talking about). And of course, Jimmy has found a new girl in his life, again!
The Letters is a story about finding joy in the simple moments of life. But it is also a story about love - love of family, love of God, and a love of others around us. And The Letters is a story of forgiveness and second chances.
I received a copy of this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review.

Welcome to a place of unconditional love and unexpected blessings...
When widow Rose Schrock turns her Amish farmhouse into a bed and breakfast, she expects there might be problems. The reaction of her cantankerous mother-in-law for one. Disapproval from the church for another. But what she doesn't expect is that the guests at the Inn at Eagle Hill will spill their problems into her life and into her heart. She also never expects the kind of help and support she gets from Galen King, the quiet and rugged horse trainer next door. Love, Rose discovers, can bloom in the most unexpected ways.
With inspiration from a true story and her signature plot twists, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher invites you back to Stoney Ridge for a fresh story of simple pleasures and strong faith in a complex world.
