The Quieting - A Book Review

The Quieting by Suzanne Woods Fisher is the second book in The Bishop's Family series, but many of Suzanne Woods Fisher books are set in Stoney Ridge.  This makes it very interesting and there are so many characters that you can catch up on with each book. It's kind of like going home to a family reunion.  You could read this as a stand alone book, but I think you will enjoy it much more if you read the first book in this series beforehand.

The Quieting focuses on Abigail Stoltzfus.  For the last few months she has helped her father with his genealogical research, hoping that breaking through a client's brick wall would also break his melancholy. But now her intrusive grandmother has set her sights on marrying off Abigail and insists she come to Stoney Ridge, where there is a plethora of eligible bachelors.

Except that Mammi is mistaken.  There are not eligible bachelors in Stoney Ridge, barring one, and he's all wrong.  Dane Glick has the wrong last name and the wrong relatives including the bishop who is at odds over a church matter with Abigail's uncle, minister David Stoltzfus.

As the conflict grows, setting family against family, it's becoming clear that the path to a solution may lead to a Quieting - a removal of a church leader.  But for which one? And when Abigail stumbles onto a curious connection during her genealogical research, it could help David solve one problem-but will it create another?

If you enjoy Amish fiction this will be the perfect series for you!  The character's are great and it is just an easy read.

***Thanks to Revell for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
