The Revealing (Inn at Eagle Hill #3) by Suzanne Woods Fisher


Love does extraordinary things to people . . . 

In a single, impulsive act, Naomi King chooses to follow her heart into unfamiliar territory, jeopardizing all that she holds dear. If anyone finds out what she's up to, she's in for trouble. But when it comes to Tobe Schrock, Naomi believes it's worth it. But it all comes crashing down when a young woman arrives at the Inn at Eagle Hill with an unexpected delivery for Tobe. Add a guest at the inn with a curious talent and a genealogist who is more interested in modern-day Schrocks than in old family trees, and evidence starts to mount that points to something sinister at work. Or someone. In this riveting conclusion to The Inn at Eagle Hill series, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher pulls out all the stops with a fast-paced tale of deception, revelation, and romance.

My Thoughts

I have enjoyed this series so much so the characters have a special spot in my heart. The author wraps all of the characters in one nice package THE REVEALING. The unsolved was solved but not without much heartache. Love lives in their hearts while many of the character have new beginnings. God directed them and they hesitantly followed. Talking and praying to God giving Him control was the only way. He will Reveal the way as He does in this series.

I highly recommend this book.

I rated this book a 5 out of 5.

My Thoughts

I read this book back in September and just now getting around to writing a well earned five star review.

I found book three to be as intriguing as the first two books in this series.

Women like Caitlin McKae took on roles they never expected to have to take on especially with no men to direct them in this mans world.  Most of the women were treated as if they were fragile, that is before their men set off to fight in the Civil War. So much to deal with on such fragile shoulders. Women like Caitlin turned out to be a very strong force on their homefronts and frontlines during the war as they tried to preserve what they had left, not just themselves but for their children and also in hopes of having a home for their sons and husbands to return home to.

We learned much about the roles men held in wartime and finally we are learning about the roles women took on during these times in our history. Women can be heroes too!

I highly recommend this book.

I rated this book a 5 out of 5.

I Am Back!

For those of you who may have wonder why I have not been posting I do have a excuse.

On October 12th, 2014 my darling husband John left me to be with Christ Our Lord.

I want to thank all my family, friends and facebook friends for helping me get through the past couple of years. This was a difficult time for me and John. It was hard on him knowing any day could be his last. He knew he was ready and said his only sadness was he would miss out on so much with us and all our kids and grandkids and family and friends.

For those who really knew John/Johnny/Dad/Pawpaw what is it you will really miss about him. Add a photo of yourself with your comment if you can.

I could not think clearly for the past few months but now I must enter this new year of 2015 with a renewed spirit and am looking forward to what the Good Lord has in store for me.


I hope to be posting some reviews this next week so keep an eye out for some goods reads.

Check out my Goodreads to read list and let me know what you would like me to consider reading and doing a review on my blog.  Male sure I own the book. It shows if I own to the far right.
