The Waiting is the newest Amish fiction from author Suzanne Woods Fisher. In this novel we find Jorie King waiting for her love, Ben Zook, to return home. Thoughts of marriage fill her heart and she's devastated to learn that he'll never return home alive. Meanwhile, Ben's brother Caleb is going through a trial of his own as he stands beside his cancer stricken wife until she passes on. Caleb and Jorie turn to each other for companionship and comfort and find something more. But life is never as easy at is appears to be and more trials are on their way for this young couple.
Suzanne makes her characters realistic. I felt like I was there in this book. It was a great read and it was very engaging. I felt like I was there and wished I was.
