"The Calling" by Suzanne Woods Fisher

About this book:

  “Twenty-year-old Bethany Schrock is restless. Her love life has derailed, her faith hangs by a thread, and she is spending the incredibly hot summer days wading through a lifetime’s accumulation of junk at the home of five ancient Amish sisters. About the only thing that holds her interest is the spirited and dangerously handsome Jimmy Fisher–and he seems bent on irritating her to no end.
   When the sly old sisters and a guest at the Inn get Bethany involved in running the local soup kitchen and starting a community garden, she suddenly finds herself wondering, Shootfire! How did that happen? Despite her newfound purposefulness, a gnawing emptiness about a childhood mystery continues to plague her. Encouraged by Jimmy Fisher, she will seek out the answers she craves–and uncover a shocking secret that will break her heart, heal it, and point her to love.

Series: Book #2 in “The Inn at Eagle Hill” series {Book #1, “The Letters”, Here! and the novella, “The Rescue”,Here!}
{Also, I have not read the series, but it looks like the series "Stoney Ridge Seasons" by this same author has a tie-in with this series.}

Spiritual Content-  Many Prayers & Scriptures are said; Geena is a Youth Pastor & witnesses and talks about God; Naomi says that a “man is possessed” and that he casts two shadows; Talks about God & His plans for us.

Negative Content- Minor cussing including: a ‘dadgum’, a ‘crummy’, a ‘biddy’ and many ‘shootfire’s; A dog gets hit by a car and dies :( (Semi detailed).

Sexual Content- a few not-detailed kisses and two semi-detailed kisses; Love & Falling in it.  

-Bethany Schrock
                      P.O.V. switches between Bethany (age 19), Mim (age 14), Geena & Naomi.                                                         320 pages (With a recipe in the back! :) )

Pre Teens-

New Teens- 
(and a half)

Early High School Teens-

Older High School Teens-

My personal Rating-

{Not for sensitive animal lovers; See Negative Content.}

While I liked “The Calling” better than book #1 in this series, “The Letters”, the doggie part was hard to read & not to dwell on it.

See y'all tomorrow with the review of the final book in this series, "The Revealing"

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
