Luke has made a promise to a dying friend that he is having trouble keeping, but not for lack of trying. He promised to empty out the group home, and find real homes for these children. When a problem with mold in the group home housing the kids occurs, the Amish community steps up to house these kids, temporarily. School teacher Mollie is at the head of the line, thinking of all the great activities she will do with these kids. But the 11-year-old twins she gets are nothing like what she expected. And another unexpected happening occurs to further strain Mollie. This book deals with several subjects – foster care, illness, promises, disillusionment, and the past – with thoughtfulness and compassion. Well written and with likable characters, it tackles subjects not usually seen in Amish fiction, and it does it well. ( )

I thought this was one of the best Amish fiction books I have read in a while. The author shows real characters of all types and shows that they have concerns we might not have considered. I also liked reading about how they all were memorizing Psalm 23 and the parallels in their lives. ( )

I was looking forward to this book, the second in Ms. Fisher’s series, The Deacon’s Family. After giving up his wild boy ways and turning back to God, Luke wins the hand Izzy, the one he truly loves and marries her. Though deeply in love, their marriage requires a lot of adjustment and it is no wonder with how very different the two are. In spite of his wayward youth, Luke finds himself chosen as a Deacon. He doesn’t feel capable of fulfilling this lifelong appointment. Izzy isn’t too happy about the title either as her husband is away from her most of the time. While growing in the Lord, She still has much healing to do from her childhood in foster care. When Luke attempts to fulfill and a promise to Amos lap, to find homes for all the foster children in the county, the conflicts between them grow.
Molly a sweet, young single woman and school teacher for the Amish community wants with all her heart to foster children and show them the love they have missed. She gets more than she wished for when she becomes foster mom to a set of twins that are constantly in trouble. Sam, Luke’s brother, is concerned about what Molly has gotten herself into and tries to help when problems arise. Both couples find themselves facing challenges they never have before.
I have enjoyed in both books Izzy’s love of her “woolies” (sheep) and the way God teaches her through them. Made me want a sweet lamb to put in the backyard! Whenever facing problems physical or emotional, the characters were confused and suffered, but always looked to God and trusted Him. The author does a wonderful job of showing that while difficulties did not immediately go away; they did not give up on the Lord. Molly reminded me of so many young people who have the zeal to follow what they believe to be God’s leading but have no clue of the price that will be exacted of them. I look forward to reading the next book in the series! ( )

Return to Suzanne Woods Fisher’s beloved Amish community of Stoney Ridge in her new book, Stitches in Time!

Suzanne Woods Fisher has such a unique voice and delivery for her Amish fiction. There is so much heart, balanced with a lot of humor and a lot of faith. It’s impossible not to adore for her characters! Each and every one of them.

This one made me cry. There are so many touching moments in this story. There’s so much I wish I could say about this book, but how can I without giving spoilers? I can’t.

I absolutely recommend this impressive story! Stitches is Time is available NOW! Visit www.christianbook.com to purchase a copy!

Two Steps Forward, the conclusion of this endearing series, will be available February 4, 2020. It’s already on my list of Highly Anticipated Reads for 2020! It’s available for preorder at Christian Book Distributors!

I received a complimentary electronic copy of this book from Revell through NetGalley. A positive review was not required. Opinions expressed are completely my own.

I've enjoyed other books by this author, but I am starting to feel that she tells the same story repeatedly just substituting different characters. It was so noticeable in this book that I struggled to want to pick it up to continue reading it.

Luke becomes a deacon by lot. How does he know only 1 person mentioned his name to the bishop? I mean we know at least one person had to mention his name because he was nominated but how does he know it was only 1 person who did so? In fact, in a previous book, I thought it was stated that at least 2 people had to nominate a man for him to be eligible to be put forth as a candidate.

I don't remember all the details from the first book in the series--which perhaps is telling--I don't remember Luke promising to "empty the foster homes". I know Izzy struggles with this concept. Both in the case of Luke's becoming a deacon and Izzy's storming off when he asks her about Mollie becoming a foster parent--I didn't understand the issues they were struggling with. The author did't let us into their heads/thoughts to allow us to understand it--at least not for far too long since I got bored trying to figure it out. ( )
