Book Review - The Revealing


Naomi King, soft spoken, loyal, and easily overlooked, has a gift. She sees what others can't see. Intuition, she calls it. Others in Stoney Ridge don't know what to make of it and dismiss her hunches and inklings altogether.

When a young woman arrives at the Inn at Eagle Hill with a shocking secret about Tobe Schrock, Naomi fears the worst. She can't ignore the feeling that something sinister is at work--- something more than a threat to the tenuous love begun between her and Tobe.

As signs mount, they begin to point to Jake Hertzler, the elusive mastermind behind Schrock Investments' downfall. Soon, events spiral hopelessly out of control and Naomi must decide whether to listen to her head or her heart.

In this riveting conclusion to The Inn at Eagle Hill series, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher pulls out all the stops with a fast-paced tale of deception, revelation, and just the right dose of romance.

Suzanne Woods Fisher is the bestselling author of the Inn at Eagle Hill series, Lancaster County Secrets series, and the Stoney Ridge Seasons series, as well as nonfiction books about the Amish, including Amish Peace. She is also the coauthor of a new Amish children's series, The Adventures of Lily Lapp. Her interest in the Anabaptist cultures can be directly traced to her grandfather, who was raised in the Old Order German Baptist Brethren Church in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. Suzanne is a Carol Award winner and a Christy Award finalist. She is a columnist for Christian Post and Cooking & Such magazines. She lives in California.

This book is the conclusion of "The Inn at Eagle Hill" series. Even though it's part of a series, if you have only read this book, you won't be lost and you'll enjoy it immensely! The characters are so believable and so well rounded, I was still thinking about them even when the book was done. I was almost sad that this is the last in the series, except the author ended it so well and it was very satisfying how it ended.

Rose is still keeping her family together after the death of her husband. She has step-children, children of her own and a cranky mother-in-law all living under the same roof. For added income, she also rents out a room to people that want to experience the Amish way of life. This time, Brooke is her guest and she ends up creating quite a stir as she gets involved with someone from the families past.

Tobe, Rose's stepson, is getting out of prison soon and they all wonder if he will come back home and be baptized as Amish or if he will leave the community again. Naomi wonders this most of all as she loves Tobe and hopes the best will work out. Naomi's brother, Galen, doesn't know about her relationship with Tobe and this creates a problem for her - she is constantly popping Tums!

There are some new characters in this book that I really liked and I was curious if there would be a new romance with Rose. Galen and Rose have had an understanding for awhile, but there is a lot between them, including an age difference, that bothers Rose.

I really loved how the story was all brought to a wonderful conclusion. Most of all, I liked that the author didn't rush the conclusion, as can happen so many times. She took her time and tied all the lose ends up and I was very happy with the conclusion. This is a lovely story full of intrigue, relationships, and the Amish way of life. I really enjoyed it and give it 5 out of 5 stars.
