The Calling by Suzanne Woods Fisher

To go along with my new obsession of reading Amish books, I was quite thrilled to read Suzanne Woods Fisher's newest book, "The Calling" which is the second book in the Inn of Eagle Hill Series! I am a big fan of hers, and especially of her "The Adventures of Lily Lapp" Series, as is my 7 year old!

In "The Calling", Bethany is restless after a failed relationship, and doesn't quite know what God wants her to do with her life. A group of 5 Amish sisters have helped ease her mind of her problems by hiring her to help clean out their house, but she can't keep her mind off the annoying Jimmy Fisher who finds Bethany so enticing.

Meanwhile, Bethany's job of cleaning is not as easy as she thought as the group of sisters are quite the hoarders and refuse to get rid of anything. When she finds a trunk full of human bones and skulls, Bethany secretly wonders if the sisters are murderers and is apprehensive about returning to finish the job.

I did not read the first book in this series, and that did make it a bit confusing in the beginning, but after awhile I did get the hang of it. However, I would definitely recommend reading the first book in the series before reading "The Calling." This book does go back to some of the issues discussed in the first book though, and answers some questions about Jake, the man Bethany was previously interested in. There were definitely some twists and turns in this book and it was a bit suspenseful at times! I would rate this book as 4 stars!

I received this book for free from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion.
