About the Book:
When Sadie Lapp steps off the bus in Stoney Ridge after being in Ohio for the winter, she is faced with a decision–one that goes against her very essence. Yet it’s the only way she can think of to protect a loved one.
Schoolteacher Gideon Smucker has been crazy about Sadie since boyhood. But his response to her surprising decision undermines his own reputation–and his relationship with Sadie.
College student Will Stoltz is spending the spring at the Lapp farm as a guard for a pair of nesting Peregrine Falcons–courtesy of the Lancaster County Game Warden. Will needs to get his life back on track, but his growing friendship with Sadie threatens his plans.
The lives of these three individuals intertwine, and then unravel as unexpected twists create ripples through the town of Stoney Ridge . . . and through Sadie’s heart.
Once again, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher intrigues and delights with a story that explores the bonds of friendship, family, and true love. Readers will enjoy every surprise in Sadie’s story as they search for the truth hidden within these pages.
Read an excerpt!
Suzanne Woods Fisher’s interest in the Amish began with her grandfather, W.D. Benedict, who was raised Plain. Suzanne has a great admiration for the Plain people and believes they provide wonderful examples to the world. In both her fiction and non-fiction books, she has an underlying theme: You don’t have to “go Amish” to incorporate many of their principles–simplicity, living with less, appreciating nature, forgiving others more readily– into your life.
When Suzanne isn’t writing or bragging to her friends about her first new grand-baby she is raising puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind.
To Suzanne’s way of thinking, you just can’t take life too seriously when a puppy is tearing through your house with someone’s underwear in its mouth.

The Keeper was one of my favorite books this year, and I was wondering how Suzanne Woods Fisher would follow up to such a wonderful book. Boy did she deliver! The Haven is absolutely a top notch book written in a way only Suzanne can write. We are back at Windmill Farms and into the Lapp household once again. Sadie has returned from Ohio and has brought an unexpected surprise with her. The Amish grapevine is at work and rumors start swirling about Sadie. Feeling shocked and saddened at her community’s lack of faith in her, Sadie is certain her tarnished image will never be the same. How can everyone just assume the worst in her, even Gideon Smucker, the one person she feels a strong connection with? Life on the farm is somewhat chaotic because a set of falcons have decided to make the farm their new home. This in turn brings along Will Stoltz, a man with a few secrets up his sleeve. He has been hired to keep an eye on the birds but ends up keeping an eye on Sadie. Do you smell a love triangle in the making?
I loved being back in Stoney Ridge! My anticipation to read this book has always been high and the day it arrived I immediately tore open the package, immersing myself back into the lives of the Lapp family. Suzanne does this to me….her books are like eating my favorite dessert all day long. If you put one in front of me I will devour it in record time, much like a box of glazed donuts. The Haven was no different. It was deliciously delightful with sweet and savory characters. It warmed my heart to see how far Sadie has come since we last read about her when she was a shy and awkward girl. I found myself laughing out loud on several occasions courtesy of the spunky Mary Kate Lapp, who I think steals the spotlight.
As I turned the last page my mind was thinking of the perfect way to sum of this book. A random movie quote from Shrek the Ogre popped into my head…..yes you read correctly, I said Shrek! He said Ogres are like onions….Onions have layers. Ogres have layers. The Haven is not just another Amish fiction book. It is a book with layers. Layers that are beautifully woven together to tell a story that you won’t soon forget.
