The Search--Suzanne Woods Fisher

Great story. I really enjoyed this one. It is book 3 in series. But you don't have to read the other two. They all stand alone and each one draws you in and you want to stay in Lancaster County awhile. That's what happened to me. Not convinced? Watch the trailer . . .

Here's the synopsis from the back cover. . . 
Fifteen years ago, Lainey O'Toole made a split-second decision. She couldn't have known that her choice would impact so many. Now in her mid-twenties, she is poised to go to culinary school when her car breaks down in Stoney Ridge, the very Amish town in which her long-reaching decision was made, forcing her to face the shadowed past.
Bess Reihl is less than thrilled to be spending the summer at Rose Hill Farm with her large and intimidating grandmother, Bertha. It quickly becomes clear that she is there to work the farm--and work hard. The labor is made slightly more tolerable by the time it affords Bess to spend with the handsome hired hand, Billy Lapp. But he only has eyes for a flirty and curvaceous older girl.
Lainey's and Bess's worlds are about to collide and the secrets that come to light will shock them both.

"Beautifully written, 'The Search' is a skillfully woven story that takes readers through unexpected twists and turns on the long country road toward truth. Fans both old and new will find themselves immersed in this heartwarming--and surprising--tale of young love, forgiveness, and coming to grips with the past."

And I thought . . . 
I have to agree it is beautifully written. The are twists and turns in the story that surprise and keep you interested. For this reader I am drawn into the story and wanting more. I was happy and pleased with the ending but I wanted more! I said the same thing about the other two books.
Here's a link to the authors blog for more info. about The Search and her other books.
The Secret by Suzanne Woods Fisher  deserves my 5 star rating.
