5 out of 5 Stars

Synopsis: Rose Schrock is a plain woman with a simple plan. Determined to find a way to support her family and pay off her late husband's debts, she sets to work to convert the basement of her Amish farmhouse into an inn. While her family, especially her cranky mother-in-law, is unhappy with Rose's big idea, her friend and neighbor, Galen King, supports the decision and he helps with the conversion. As Rose finalizes preparations for visitors, she prays. She asks God to bless each guest who stays at the Inn at Eagle Hill. As the first guest arrives and settles in, Rose is surprised to discover that her entire family is the one who receives the blessings, in the most unexpected ways. And she's even more surprised when that guest decides to play matchmaker for Galen King.
With her signature plot twists combined with gentle Amish romance, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher invites readers back to Stoney Ridge for fresh stories of simple pleasures despite the complexity of life. Fisher's tale of God's providence and provision will delight her fans and create many new ones. Welcome to the Inn at Eagle Hill.

My Review: Suzanne has another hit with this first book in a new series. Rose is a strong woman living with her grumpy mother in law who is laid up in bed and raising not only her children but the children from her deceased husband's first marriage. Rose has to find a way to now make a living. She decides that she is going to turn part of her home into an inn and does so with the help of her neighbor Galen. This book is about healing as you will soon discover as you read it. The first people to stay at the inn not only help themselves but end up helping Rose as well without knowing it. I also enjoyed how Rose and Galen's relationship grew in this book. If you like Amish fiction then you will enjoy this book.
