    Suzanne Woods Fisher never disappoints me. Her books just have such an appealing quality about them.  The characters are so well developed, and you just feel like they are your own neighbors.  The Revealing is this kind of story. You know a Naomi, a Rose, a Galen and even a Mammi Vera, unfortunately. These characters are just like people you know in your daily life, which makes this book so easy to read and relate to.  Another wonderful story,, very sad to see the end of this series, but confident the next series will be as wonderful.  4.5 stars from this reviewer.

    I was immediately drawn into this fast-paced story. I found the twists exciting and was interested in the multifaceted characters. 


    I especially like Naomi King. She is believable and likeable, and isn’t a pushover. She is secretive, but her instincts are strong and I rooted for her.  Her furtiveness has everything to do with Tobe Schrock. She’s hiding their relationship, and has been sneaking out to see him in prison. 


    Naomi’s world suddenly turns upside down when a pregnant girl (Paisley) comes to town claiming she is going to marry Tobe when he returns to the Eagle Hill community, because he’s her baby’s father. Naomi’s heart and mind battle with who and what to believe.


    Though I enjoyed this story, I wish I’d read the first two books in the series first. (Initially, I didn’t realize it was a series.) There were a few instances where I was confused, and it was evident I was missing some information that was revealed in prior books. But with that said, I was invested in the story and didn’t have any thoughts of putting the book down without finishing it.


    I recommend reading the first two books prior to reading this one. I plan to go back and learn about the assortment of characters and their rich histories.

    First Lines: This secret life was doing her in. At times, Naomi King wondered how in the world she had become so secretive. She used to be the type who would answer any question, talk to anyone about anything. No longer.

    THE REVEALING by Suzanne Woods Fisher is an interesting Christi

    THE REVEALING by Suzanne Woods Fisher is an interesting Christian Amish Contemporary Fiction set in Stoney Ridge. #3 and the final in the "Inn at Eagle Hill" series, but can be read as a stand alone. Although, I would suggest reading the other two in the series. See, "The Letters", "The Calling" and the novella "The Rescue".
    In "The Revealing" you find answers to some of the questions from the previous titles. This is Naomi King, who has the "gift", she sees things others can not, which she calls it intuition, Jake Hertzler, and Tobe Schrock. Filled with secrets, reveals many secrets, drama, faith, has a bit of mystery, suspense and finding love.
    There are many twists along the way with sub-plots and connected stories intertwined. Will the people of Eagle Hill find happiness, peace and love? You will find many surprises in "The Revealing". I have enjoyed getting to know the people of Eagle Hill and kinda hate to see them leave us. But all good things must come to an end.
    Ms. Woods Fisher, is a constant storyteller, she shows readers how the Amish deal with life, trials and troubles we all have in common. A simple life is not always a life that is simple, but is plighted with problems, and issues too. "The Revealing" is a satisfying read.
    "Coming in July from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group"
