The Return: Review by Susan Scott Ferrell


The Return – Amish and Savages and More, Oh My!

It was with great delight and sadness that I received my copy of Suzanne Woods Fisher’s newest release, The Return… Delight because I knew I would love another Fisher novel – I’ve been waiting for this one! Sadness because this meant the end of her Amish Beginnings series! I guarantee you’ll love this one!

The Return is set 25 years since the last in the series, The Newcomer, and it’s full of suspense and good old fashioned adventure. What a cast of characters! Of course Bairn, Anna, and Felix and the gang are all back. But there’s also beautiful Betsy, taken captive after an Indian raid on her Amish farm. Little Hans has grown up to be handsome Hans who adores Betsy, but not Indians. And don’t overlook troubled Tessa who has an adventurous spirit…and loves Hans. How will this all resolve? I bet you can’t figure out the ending…read and find out!

I was given The Return in exchange for my honest review. While it can be read as a stand-alone, I highly recommend reading the series in chronological order. Not only will the storylines flow better, but the series is THAT good. The characters are engaging and enjoyable. Fisher does a tremendous job of pulling readers in and transporting them to 1760s Pennsylvania. What a wonderful ending to a phenomenal series! Five stars, hands down!

Susan Ferrell and her husband make their home in the Atlanta Metro area. Although Susan struggles with chronic migraine headaches, she stays very busy as a stay-at-home mom to one very precocious little girl. While catching her breath, she feeds her Amishaholic tendencies by reading vast amounts of Amish literature!
