From the Back Cover
Spring brings new life, young love, and second chances to Stoney Ridge.
On a warm spring day, Sadie Lapp returns home to her quiet, unassertive life in Stoney Ridge after spending the winter in Ohio.
Gideon Smucker, an awkward schoolteacher, has been in love with Sadie since childhood and eagerly awaits her return. But does Sadie feel the same about him?
Will Stoltz, a charming and impetuous college student, has been banished for a semester and sent to babysit endangered peregrine falcons nesting at the Lapp farm. He'd rather be anywhere else . . . until he befriends Sadie.
As the hopes and ambitions of these three young people converge, life in Stoney Ridge may never be the same.

Suzanne has a learning experience in each of her new books. Last time, I found out so many facts about beekeeping. This time , I learned about the endangered penegrine falcons that are nesting on the Lapp farm. The author has done a great job of researching this subject. This is intertwined in a complicated plot involving the hopes and ambitions of three young people. We are constantly kept guessing what is going to happen next.
Love is in the air, but who is going to be Sadie's choice and how will she decide? Will she listen to the quiet voice of God and let His plan take over.
Where did this baby come from? Is it Sadie's, as the community believes??
The humor in this book helps us overcome the shadows and dark times, as only Suzanne can accomplish.
This is a book that keeps you up late at night! You DO NOT want to put it down. It is a page turner, to say the least. A romance, yes!! A compelling Amish fiction, yes!!! It has it ALL!!
A Five Star book!!
As the clock ticked past midnight, I truly tried to walk away from Sadie's story but just had to reach the end. The Amish family at Stoney Ridge may very well be one of my favourite family of characters to come along in some time. I simply can't get enough of reading about their adventures and seeing their unique perspectives on life. Sadie is a wonderful character who I felt like cheering for as she grew to become comfortable in her own skin, and discovered that God uniquely gifted her and she's able to do more than she even dreamed of. The scene where she boldly helps an older Amish lady let go of her bitterness and discover anew the power of forgiveness was a powerful one indeed. And who ever thought she'd catch the attention of not one but two men interested in her? The resulting tension results in some hilarious scenes!
Fisher's writing continues to be filled with both humour and deep emotion, with smooth flowing words and plenty of action to keep the scenes moving. It is truly Amish fiction at its best, and I award this book 5 out of 5 stars. I can't wait for the final book in the series, The Lesson, featuring one of my favourite characters (M.K.), coming January 2013!!

When Sadie Lapp steps off the bus in Stoney Ridge after being in Ohio for the winter, she is faced with a decision - one that goes against her very essence. Yet it's the only way she can think of to protect a loved one. Schoolteacher Gideon Smucker has been crazy about Sadie since boyhood. But his response to her surprising decision undermines her own reputation - and his relationship with Sadie. College student Will Stoltz is spending the spring at the Lapp farm as a guard for a pair of nesting Peregrine Falcons - courtesy of the Lancaster County Game Warden. Will needs to get his life back on track, but his growing friendship with Sadie threatens his plans. The lives of these three individuals intertwine, and then unravel as unexpected twists create ripples through the town of Stoney Ridge...and through Sadie's heart. Once again, bestselling author Suzanna Woods Fisher intrigues and delights with a story that explores the bonds of friendship, family, and true love. Readers will enjoy every surprise in Sadie's story as they search for the truth hidden within these pages.
Sadie Lap has been in Berlin, Ohio for the winter and returned home on a bright, warm, spring day to a driveway full of people, satellite dishes, and t.v. cameras and crews. Sadie is stunned beyond belief and being extremely shy is annoyed that she now realizes she has chosen the worst possible day in her life to "surprise" her family with her homecoming. Sadie hadn't told anyone she was returning home two weeks early. As she stood there in awe with suitcases in hand, she suddenly heard the loud voice of her twelve-year-old sister Mary Kate calling "Saaaddddiiiieeee!", then the warm welcoming of her father. They explained to Sadie that a pair of peregrine falcons have nested on their farm which has brought the local Audabon Society, and everyone in town, and the t.v. crews to film this momentous moment.
Will Stoltz, a charming and handsome young man has been banished for a semester from his college and sent to the Lapp farm to babysit the endangered peregrine falcons nesting at their farm. Will would much rather be anywhere else until he meets Sadie Lapp.
Gideon Smucker, a more quiet, awkward schoolteacher, has been in love with Sadie since they were children and is eagerly awaiting her return from Berlin, Ohio. But does Sadie feel the same about him?
Will and Gideon don't care much for each other and at one point get into a physical altercation over their beloved Sadie. However, it is little Mary Kate who creates some of the problems and a mistake over some petite fours that aids the controversy between the two men. Who will win the heart of Sadie Lapp?
This was a heartwarming and feel good story of faith, family, forgiveness and hope. I would highly recommend this novel to anyone.
