These last few cold and snowy days have been perfect reading days. With my cup of hot cocoa I've curled up with "The Calling" by Suzanne Woods Fisher," and my cold and snowy days became cozy days.
I appreciate history and biography, but my first love of reading is always a novel. "The Calling" captured me in the first pages and I had a delightful journey to the end of the book. The story centers around Bethany Schrock, a twenty-year old Amish woman, looking for purpose and love. It's difficult not to like Bethany, as well as the characters that surround her, especially five elderly sisters. I enjoy novels with Amish settings and I especially liked this one. I am so glad to find a new favorite author in Suzanne Woods Fischer. "The Calling" is part of the "Inn at Eagle Hill" series and I'm pleased to have other books in the series to read. Though I enjoyed "The Calling" with my hot cocoa, I know I'll enjoy the rest of the series with a cold lemonade, too.
I did get myself out and about today and despite the bitter weather it felt great to be outdoors. We had brilliant bright sun and it was a welcome change from yesterday's snow. The only thing I've got scheduled for tomorrow is physical therapy. It's only a four block walk and just far enough to be a little excursion. Afterwards I will treat myself to a cup of coffee at my favorite coffee place. It's not fancy, but they have the best coffee around.
As always, so appreciate your visits. Take good care and keep cozy!
Please note, I was given a copy of "The Calling" for review via the Litfuse Publicity Group, but the opinions are all mine.
