Book Beat – The Haven by Suzanne Woods Fisher

**Update!** Suzanne has graciously offered to give away a copy of The Haven! If you’d like to be entered in the drawing, please leave a comment. Make sure to leave your email address in the following format: sarah[at]sarahsundin[dot]com.

Have you ever found yourself as the object of gossip–and are stunned to find people believe the worst about you?

In The Haven by Suzanne Woods Fisher, shy Sadie Lapp finds herself in such a position. After spending the winter with her sister in Ohio, Sadie returns with a foundling baby–a baby people assume is Sadie’s. Gideon Smucker has always loved Sadie, but he believes the gossip, and everything he does to make things better backfires. To complicate matters, college student Will Stoltz is assigned to an internship on the Lapp farm protecting endangered falcons. Will is attractive and funny…and not Amish. Sadie, who hasn’t an assertive bone in her body, must learn to speak up for herself and do what’s right and best.

While Amish fiction isn’t my usual genre, I love Suzanne Woods Fisher’s writing. Her humor and heart make every one of her novels a delight. In The Haven, Sadie, Will, and Gideon are interesting and complex characters–and Sadie’s little sister MK steals every scene she’s in. This story is a treat.

    Reading Suzanne’s books is like meeting a good friend over a cuppa! The one adjective which comes to mind is ‘comfortable’! At my age, it is a wonderful feeling!
    ‘The Haven’ was all that I expected, with just the right kind of twist to make it yet another ‘keeper’. And yes, you are absolutely right Sarah, it was a treat!
    Good luck to all who enters the Giveaway!

First time I have ever been behind on a book by Suzanne Woods Fisher, but reviewing keeps you hopping! Wish I had two heads, one just for reading. Thank you for the oppportunity to win The Haven…what a blessing this would be to win!

    Love botH Suzanne & Sarah’s books. Both are terrific authors. I have read The Haven and loved it. Only compliant, just wish it had been longer. I’m a fast reader and good books don’t last long enough. These two authors have even converted my father, husband and mother to reading their books. God bless both of you. If I should win the book would be a Christmas gift for a friend that has never read your books. Also, looking forward to your new release Sarah.
