About the Book
Restless and adventurous, Ruthie Stoltzfus is right on the cusp of leaving her Amish home. Secretly, she’s earned her GED, saved her money—but she can’t quite set her journey into motion. Just as everything falls into place, along comes Patrick Kelly.
Patrick is a young man on a journey of his own. He’s come to Stoney Ridge to convert to the Amish and has given himself thirty days to learn the language, drive a buggy, and adapt to “everything Plain.” Time is of the essence and every moment is to be cherished—especially the hours he spends with Ruthie, his Penn Dutch tutor.
Ruthie’s next-door neighbor and cunning ex-boyfriend, Luke Schrock, is drawn to trouble like a moth to a flame. Rebellious, headstrong, defiant, Luke will do anything to win Ruthie back—and Patrick Kelly is in his way.
Bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher invites you back to Stoney Ridge for a story of dreams deferred—and the promise of hopes fulfilled.
About the Author
Suzanne Woods Fisher is an award-winning, bestselling author whose most recent novels include Anna’s Crossing and The Inn at Eagle Hill series, as well as nonfiction books about the Amish, including Amish Peace and The Heart of the Amish. She lives in California.
The Devoted by Suzanne Woods Fisher is the third and final novel in The Bishop’s Family series. Fisher has a wonderful way of creating and sharing a story from multiple character’s view points and his novel is no different. The story focuses on Ruthie Stoltzfus and her discontentment of living the Amish life and Patrick Kelly a man that comes to Stoney Ridge to immerse himself into the Amish life and become Amish. With a bit of suspense, adventure, and of course romance, readers will fall in love with this story. I would recommend this novel to readers that enjoy Amish fiction, as well as books written by Suzanne Woods Fisher.
