Rose Schrock is a plain woman with a simple plan. Determined to find a way to support her family and pay off her late husband's debts, she sets to work to convert the basement of her Amish farmhouse into an inn. While her family, especially her cranky mother-in-law, is unhappy with Rose's big idea, her friend and neighbor, Galen King, supports the decision and he helps with the conversion. As Rose finalizes preparations for visitors, she prays. She asks God to bless each guest who stays at the Inn at Eagle Hill. As the first guest arrives and settles in, Rose is surprised to discover that her entire family is the one who receives the blessings, in the most unexpected ways. And she's even more surprised when that guest decides to play matchmaker for Galen King.
With her signature plot twists combined with gentle Amish romance, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher invites readers back to Stoney Ridge for fresh stories of simple pleasures despite the complexity of life. Fisher's tale of God's providence and provision will delight her fans and create many new ones. Welcome to the Inn at Eagle Hill.
In this first installment of the Inn at Eagle Hill series, Fisher (The Choice) takes readers back to familiar territory the gently rolling farmland and quiet lives of the Pennsylvania Amish. The setting ironically frames widow Rose Shrock, who nurses a distinctly unquiet heart as she struggles to repay the debts her husband left behind after his suspicious drowning. Neighbor Galen King supports Rose s efforts to raise money by opening her home to boarders; Rose s bitter mother-in-law, not so much. The first tenant of the newly christened Inn at Eagle Hill comes seeking solace and refuge, both of which Rose is able to provide. But Rose s children have their own dramas that add color and depth to the storyline. Through each challenge, Rose s faith offers strength to the weak and inspiration to the doubting. When it s her turn to need help, will she let others bless her? Twin themes of provision and providence anchor several storylines. Though most of the conflicts wrap up too cleanly, fans will cheer at this latest offering from the popular Amish romance specialist.
