Book Review - Stitches In Time by Suzanne Woods Fisher


Schoolteacher Mollie Graber has come to Stoney Ridge 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 she gets are sleepless nights and police at the door.

There's only one thing that breaks through the girls' hard shells--an interest in horses. Reluctantly and skeptically, horse trainer 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 community of Stoney Ridge for a touching story of the power of love.

This is book two in the Deacon Family series. This is a stand-alone book, however, you'll love reading the first book in the series - I did.  It helps establish some of the characters and the back story of this book but you won't be lost if you read this one first.

I really enjoyed the continued story of Izzy, Luke, Mollie and Sam.  Each couple is dealing with their own issues and secrets. I loved seeing the growth of these characters and how they worked together to solve life's problems. I also love their faith and how they trust God in these situations.

As always, Suzanne Woods Fisher writes a story where you come away really caring about the characters in the story and you also feel good when you close that back cover. She writes a book that takes you away from your own troubles and allows you to feel good for the duration of her book.

I really loved this book and am looking forward to the next book in the series.  I give this book 5 stars.
