      This is the 3rd book in the seriesThis one does mention people from the 2nd book but i would say that while there is 3 books in the series each are a book on their own so if you read one of the book you can but the series is worth readingThis is a good book the ending once again felt it left some questions which is the same with all 3 booksYou really warm to Lainey Bess as well as others in the book Simon he one you can understand a bit even if you don t like him too much I would say this is one [...]

      My Wife stepped in and read this novel and did the post.I have to admit, I am a big fan of good stories written with an Amish backdrop I don t know if this comes from having lived my entire life about 90 minutes away from Lancaster, PA and enjoying frequent trips there or my envy of a lifestyle that most of us will never get to experience I am drawn in by the faith, dedication to family and community, natural beauty, and simplicity of the Amish people.The words on the back cover of The Search de [...]

      This is the first book I ve read written by Suzanne Woods Fisher So glad I found a new author that writes so wonderfully The Search is the third book in the series Lancaster County Secrets Even through it is the third in the series it was still very easy to follow along So you can read this alone or with the other two I believe it would be so neat to read the other two first They are called The Choice and The Waiting It seems so many people write about Amish stories I m not a fan of many of them [...]

      The Search by author Suzanne Woods Fisher is the third book in the Lancaster County Secrets series While I never read the first two books in the series The Choice and The Waiting, I did not feel confused at all As so often happens with series books, we never get enough of the details that went before it and can sometimes feel as if we ve walked into the middle of a movie, with no idea what is going on Not so with The Search This book could be read as a stand alone, so if you didn t read the othe [...]

      The Search, by Suzanne Woods Fisher, is my first introduction to Suzanne s writings about the Amish I found her style refreshing, real, transparent, and unique.Refreshing in the way she describes the scenes in such intricate detail, the raw emotions that spill out unexpectantly, and the guarded pain held deeply, pulling you into every experience Real in the way she portrays the many circumstances that could easily happen today, in just a slightly different fashion Transparent because you could r [...]

    8. Renee says:
      One thing I can say about Suzanne Woods Fisher is that she is keeping the Amish fiction genre fresh Confronting issues such as war, alcohol abuse and even fun topics like growing roses makes Suzanne s books stand out If you re looking for a tender, gut wrenching all around awesome story pick up one or all of her books Usually one to shy away from too much Amish fiction I can safely say that I will definitely be reading of it in the future if they are stories like this one The Search follows Eng [...]

      What a beautiful, colorful book From the descriptions of the rainbow of roses and pastries, to the descriptions of the rainbow of emotions found in the human spectrum, this book enchanted me and moved me.What a vast assortment of characters And I loved them all so much Fifteen year old Bess and her grandmother made me laugh out loud on several occasions, and the first half of the book was full of funny moments among sweet settings The story flowed effortlessly into serious tones in the second h [...]

    11. Jocelyn Green says:
      Here s what I love This book has great characters in it The portly grandmother is so full of personality she is one of them most memorable I ve read in a long time certainly not would you would expect to find in an old Amish widow The primary setting is a rose farm I ve never been to one, so I found the description of daily operations fascinating English and Amish characters meet in this book, and one side decides to convert to the other side I won t tell you which one, but the development of he [...]

    12. Kav says:
      Another amazing retro read from one of my favourite authors I just love how Suzanne Woods Fisher brings an Amish community to life And Stoney Ridge is the kind of town I want to live in I laughed until my tummy hurt over Bertha s antics Bess s grandmother is a law unto herself and she has a lovable way of mashing words that kept me chuckling throughout the read But she s crusty and opinionated and downright intimidating at times as well Kind of reminded me of Marilla Cuthburt Anne of Green Gable [...]

    13. Andi says:
      Suzanne has a way of pulling you into a story that you actually feel like you are the characters living in their world This is a beautiful story of love, forgiveness, and healing While it is 3 in a series it can easily stand alone I highly recommend it Go out and grab your copy and cuddle up by the fire for a great night or weekend of reading

    14. Joan Bolen says:
      Loved the whole series Fantastic writer who holds your attention Keeps the reader wanting .

    15. Rosemarie says:
      Interestingly, I thought book 2 was a Vietnam period piece because I didn t catch any historical references in book 1 However, in book 3, which referenced characters in book 1, the year 1971 was mentioned, so this entire series takes place during the Vietnam war This story is about a teenage Amish girl who travels from Ohio to visit her grandmother in Stony Ridge Lancaster, PA and an Englisch girl whose car breaks down in Stoney Ridge Both of their lives are tied together in a tragedy that happe [...]

    16. Larisha says:
      This was the 3rd book in the series It s wonderful how each book can be read as a stand a lone and yet they are all woven together too I enjoy the author s style of writing.This was a beautiful story about forgiveness, healing, and love I like this part from the book How do I forgive her , as far as forgiving your mother, Peter asked Jesus, how many times should he forgive another Peter wanted a statistical count and Jesus responded with a story Not seven times, but I tell you, seventy seven tim [...]

    17. Angela says:
      Well this wasn t my favorite series but it was still good This might have been my favorite book of the 3 but I wish the books would have flowed together a lot Books in a series should follow each other and this series really didn t do that much at all so that disappointed me Wish there was a 4th book that would pull everything together and finish the stories of all the lives that were left in limbo for us to ponder as to what truly happened in the end Especially this onewould Bess eventually ma [...]

    18. Nicki says:
      What a good story I liked the crabby grandma and her knowing things before they happen I like the twists and turns the story takes Bess is a good character and seems older than her age I thought the book was a good one.i want to thank the author for sending me this large print book for my mom.

    19. Patricia says:
      I enjoy reading books about the Amish, as I have lived very near them and found them fascinating The book was enjoyable, but not as good as some I have read Very light reading A nice book to read when you want a break from some of the other, chalenging books.

    20. Megan Rang says:
      Loved this book Especially the Grandmother She was cantankerous and funny.

    21. Sandra Swartz says:

      I had the pleasure of reading the first two book of the Lancaster County Secrets Collection, The Choice and The Waiting and I was greatly anticipating this next book It did not disappoint In fact, it was my favourite of the three I ve read so far This story follows 15 year old, Bess, who is visiting her Mammi for the summer and Lainey, a 25 year old woman who is new in town and comes back to the area for a specific reason that is revealed a little ways into the book I don t want to give spoilers [...]

      Not being the biggest fan of Amish fiction, I was not sure I would really like this book But I have read a couple of Suzanne Woods Fisher s non fiction Amish books and always enjoyed them, so I thought I d give The Search a try Actually my interest in this particular book can be credited to something much simpler than that I was drawn in by the beautiful rose on the cover of the book There was just something so lovely about that rose and the rest of the cover was simple and muted I knew there wa [...]
