About the book:
Jorie King's life is on hold. She has been waiting for Ben Zook to return to Lancaster County. Waiting for him to settle down and join the church. Waiting to marry him.
But when news arrives that Ben has been killed, Jorie is devastated. She finds unlikely comfort in the friendship of his brother Caleb. Friendship ripens into love, and two broken hearts plan for a life filled with the promise of a fresh beginning -- until their worlds are turned upside down.
With her realistic characters whose weaknesses develop into strengths, Suzanne Woods Fisher offers a reading experience that rises above the others. You will love growing in spirit with these complex people living the simple life as The Waiting transports you into a world where things aren't as simple as they seem.
Like the previous book I read in the Lancaster County Secrets series, this started out very s-l-o-w. Again, I felt like not reading it, putting it down, saying this wasn't the book for me. But I stuck with it and about 1/3 of the way in I could not put this book down. Raced through it wanting to find out what would happen next. And the end... well, I just could not predict it. So surprising and unexpected. So once again a book that I started out not wanting to read turned out fantastic.
