Sadie Lapp had spent the winter in Ohio helping her sister and brother-in-law get settled into their new home. While she was there she spent time with an elderly Old Older Amish woman, Deborah Yoder, who is known as a great healer. For some odd reason, Sadie had a feeling that she should return home to Stoney Ridge. On the way home, she found an abandoned baby at a bus station, not knowing exactly what to do, she takes the baby home with her.
When she arrives at her home, there is a swarm of cars and a media circus as s rare pair of American peregrine falcons have made a nest on the family farm. A young college student, Will Stoltz, had been kicked out his school for the semester, plus his family is having legal problems. He is now staying on the Lapp farm to protect the falcons.
Gideon Smucker, the local schoolteacher, has patiently been waiting for Sadie's return and hopes to make her his bride.
Stoney Ridge is a small community and word spreads quickly that Sadie Lapp has returned home with a baby after spending several months in Ohio. To make matter worse, Sadie has another suitor besides Gideon. Yep, the college boy Will is after her affections too.
Wow! There is a lot going on here in book two of the new Stoney Ridge Seasons series. The author has a way with words and by page three I was hooked! A lot of things are going in Sadie's Amish world, especially with the rumors that she had a baby when she was in Ohio. I think it is funny and sad how people jump to conclusions without knowing the facts as it can cause many unwanted problems for an innocent person. I was surprised that there wasn't more closure at the ending, but that's probably why there is going to be a book three. The Haven has a great plot, wonderful dialogue, and charming characters that should satisfy most Amish genre readers.
