Stitches in Time | Suzanne Woods Fisher



Today I am reviewing Stitches in Time, the second book in The Deacon’s Family series, by Suzanne Woods Fisher.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Detachment had worked well as a life strategy for horse trainer Sam Schrock. Until he met Mollie Graber . . .

New to Stoney Ridge, schoolteacher Mollie has come to town for a fresh start. Aware of how fleeting and fragile life is, she wants to live it boldly and bravely. When Luke Schrock, new to his role as deacon, asks the church to take in foster girls from a group home, she’s the first to raise her hand. The power of love, she believes, can pick up the dropped stitches in a child’s heart and knit them back together.

Mollie envisions sleepovers and pillow fights. What the 11-year-old twins bring to her home is anything but. Visits from the sheriff at midnight. Phone calls from the school truancy officer. And then the most humiliating moment of all: the girls accuse Mollie of drug addiction.

There’s only one thing that breaks through the girls’ hard shell–an interest in horses. Reluctantly and skeptically, Sam Schrock gets drawn into Mollie’s chaotic life. What he didn’t expect was for love to knit together the dropped stitches in his own heart . . . just in time.

Suzanne Woods Fisher invites you back to the little Amish church of Stoney Ridge for a touching story of the power of love.



After getting to know Luke and Izzy in the first book in this series, Mending Fences, I enjoyed how Suzanne continued their story, while adding the story of Luke’s brother Sam, and his attempts to court Mollie Graber, the new schoolteacher in Stoney Ridge.

I absolutely LOVE the characters in this series. I almost wish I lived in this community. Everyone–well, most everyone–is encouraging, supportive, and lovable. These books are going on the TOP SHELF of my favorite bookcase!


Happy Reading!

Barbara Cameron MARATHON

Beginning tomorrow, I plan to write a review for some the Barbara Cameron books I own… and I own more than a few…

I have chosen books from the series shown below, because they all tend to connect. If you’ve ever finished a book and wondered what happened, Barbara complies with allowing her characters to continue in new books. You can read books from the Quilts of Lancaster County, the Stitches in Time and the Amish Roads series, and you will find many of the same characters. This makes for an exciting, yet familiar read.

Quilts of Lancaster County
A Time to Love
A Time to Heal
A Time for Peace

Stitches in Time
Her Restless Heart
The Heart’s Journey
Heart in Hand

Amish Roads
A Road Unknown – published 2014
Crossroads – a special sneak peak

I hope you enjoy reading the reviews for these books!

God bless you!
