The Devoted by Suzanne Woods Fisher Book Review

The Amish life is all she's ever known--but will it satisfy her soul?

Restless and adventurous, Ruthie Stoltzfus is right on the cusp of leaving her Amish home. Secretly, she's earned her GED, saved her money--but she can't quite set her journey into motion. Just as everything falls into place, along comes Patrick Kelly.

Patrick is a young man on a journey of his own. He's come to Stoney Ridge to convert to the Amish and has given himself thirty days to learn the language, drive a buggy, and adapt to "everything Plain." Time is of the essence and every moment is to be cherished--especially the hours he spends with Ruthie, his Penn Dutch tutor.

Ruthie's next-door neighbor and cunning ex-boyfriend, Luke Schrock, is drawn to trouble like a moth to a flame. Rebellious, headstrong, defiant, Luke will do anything to win Ruthie back--and Patrick Kelly is in his way.

Bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher invites you back to Stoney Ridge for a story of dreams deferred--and the promise of hopes fulfilled.

My Thoughts:

Somehow I missed the first two books in this series. This is the third book in the Bishop Family Series. I was able to read this book as a standalone. I’m sure I have missed some of the details with the characters.
This was a page turner and I had a hard time putting it down and it kept me up in the wee hours of the night.

Suzanne Woods Fisher set up a wonderful plot with fun characters. I love how you are drawn into to this simple plain life of the Amish. There are a lot of quotes of wisdom sprinkled throughout the pages.
Bishop David was a character I really enjoyed. He was a kind hearted newly appointed Bishop that truly cared for others. Patrick was a character with a lot of depth and I enjoyed his heart and his desire to want to become Amish. He’s a unique character that captured your heart.  Patrick has a lot of wisdom for a young man.

Ruthie was searching for directions but, she wasn’t a rebellious teen. She wants more out of life-she not sure what she is searching for other than furthering her education beyond the 8th grade. Sometimes direction comes from an unexpected individual. 

On this last book you find forgiveness, and hope. There are so many memorable characters in this precious story.
