Winter Reads: The Devoted by Suzanne Woods Fisher


Revell; 336 pages; $14.99; Amazon


There's nothing better to do on a boring Thursday afternoon than to read a book, along with drinking a few cups of coffee.

What title did I read today?

Well, it's the third book in "The Bishop's Family" series, titled The Devoted. It's written by the award-winning & bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher.

Similar to the other two books (The Imposter, and The Quieting) in the series, The Devoted once again centers on the Stoltzfus family; though this time Ruthie Stolzfus is the main character, a young woman who is considering leaving her Amish heritage for the outside world. This is a romance story, so of course there is a love interest, Patrick Kelly, for Ruthie.

I'm not going to go any further into the actual plot as I don't want to spoil it for other readers.

Final Thoughts: One of my favorite genres to read is Amish fiction, so of course I was excited to read The Devoted today. Suzanne Woods Fisher is a wonderful writer and her writing skills shine in third installment in the Bishop's Family series. Yes, the plot of tutoring an outsider to learn the ways of the Amish is nothing new in the genre, but the author works her magic and gives the simple story a breath of fresh air. The characters are likeable and the dialogue is well written.

Overall, I have enjoyed reading The Devoted and I recommend it (as well as the first two books in the series) to other readers.
