The Quieting is the second book in Suzanne Woods Fisher’s The Bishop’s Family series. In this book we get to read the continued stories of some family members: David, Katrina, Jesse, Ruthie, and Molly. We also get to meet some new characters who’ve come to town to “help” the family out: Tillie, Abigail, and Laura. We also meet David’s non-Amish sister, Ruth.
My favorite thing about this series is “watching” characters, both family and friends, develop and mature. They make some incredible discoveries about how life works—and even the worst of them learn that mistakes can be redeemed, pride can be overcome, relationships can be restored. Fisher is an expert at showing, not telling, great truth through her powerful, yet sweet, stories.
I received a complimentary copy of The Quieting from Revell in exchange for an honest review. I enjoyed reading it and am looking forward to the next book in the series, The Devoted, which will be released this Fall.
