Today I am reviewing The Devoted… the third book in The Bishop’s Family series by Suzanne Woods Fisher.
Here is a brief synopsis:
Fan Favorite Suzanne Woods Fisher Offers Readers Tender Romance, Humor, and Plenty of Surprises
Restless and adventurous, Ruthie Stoltzfus is right on the cusp of leaving her Amish home. Secretly, she’s earned her GED, saved her money—but she can’t quite set her journey into motion. Just as everything falls into place, along comes Patrick Kelly.
Patrick is a young man on a journey of his own. He’s come to Stoney Ridge to convert to the Amish and has given himself thirty days to learn the language, drive a buggy, and adapt to “everything Plain.” Time is of the essence and every moment is to be cherished—especially the hours he spends with Ruthie, his Penn Dutch tutor.
Ruthie’s next-door neighbor and cunning ex-boyfriend, Luke Schrock, is drawn to trouble like a moth to a flame. Rebellious, headstrong, defiant, Luke will do anything to win Ruthie back—and Patrick Kelly is in his way.
Bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher invites you back to Stoney Ridge for a story of dreams deferred—and the promise of hopes fulfilled—complete with Fisher’s signature twists that never fail to leave readers delighted.
In this long-awaited novel, Suzanne takes us back to Stoney Ridge to follow along Ruthie Stoltzfus’ journey. It is not an easy one—and not one, but two young men stand in her path to leaving the plain life.
There is much more to Ruthie than what you see on the surface. She has secrets. She has dreams. She has plans. What is keeping her in Stoney Ridge? Could it be her family . . . or the new young man in town . . . or the boy next door — the ex-boyfriend who is determined to win her back?
I’m not certain even Ruthie knows, but something is holding her back.
Will she choose faith, family and love — or will she set off on her own to explore a world outside of Stoney Ridge?
You’ll have to read it to find out. In fact, I recommend you read the whole series. You’ll be blessed by it.
God bless you!
