The Waiting by Suzanne Woods Fisher & My Review

The Waiting
by 
Suzanne Woods Fisher

Synopsis:
 Jorie King has been waiting for Benjamin Zook to return home to Lancaster County so they can marry. When news arrives that Ben has been killed, Jorie finds comfort in the friendship of his brother Caleb. That friendship ripens into love, and it seems that they are meant to be together.
But when the unexpected happens, their worlds are turned upside once more.
Will Jorie trust God to lead her into the arms of a new man?
A multi-faceted story about complex people leading the simple life.

***Available October 2010 at your favourite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group***

Suzanne Woods Fisher is a wife, mother, writer, lifelong student of the Bible, raiser of puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind, a gardener, and a cook.
Suzanne has always loved to write since she was a young teen. Writing, for Suzanne is a way to express a love of God and His word. With every book or article that she writes, she hopes that readers get a sense of what faith really looks like in the daily grind.

My Review:
I can't believe that I didn't post a review of this earlier! I really really enjoyed this book, and I had trouble putting it down. I finished it in record time because it sucked me in.
I'm surprised that the synopsis leaves out a couple of details that don't give away the story. One, Caleb is actually married at the start of the story, but his wife (Jorie's dear friend) dies. Two, Caleb has a child.
Jorie is a fascinating character who has an amazing strength and is willing to stand up against prejudice and loves her family beyond compare.
