The Letters by Susznne Woods Fisher

The LettersBook Description:
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 Thoughts:
Loved this book.  Rose is trying to keep her head above water.  When her husband died, he left her with five children, a grouchy mother-in-law and a mountain of debt.  She prays for direction in how to support her family and her prayer is answered when she overhears a conversation.  She is going to turn her basement into an inn, regardless of what her mother-in-law thinks.  Her neighbor, Galen is supportive and works with her to build the inn, and maybe work his way into her heart.
Rose was a wonderful character.  She was loving and giving.  It didn't matter who she was talking to, from her children to her mother-in-law to guests, her caring shined through.  Galen was a strong man who, I believe, showed Rose his love through his actions.  Seeing characters from her past books was a great treat and I cannot wait to see where this story continues on in the next book!
I rate this a 5/5.  Ms. Fisher always does a wonderful job with her books and this is a great start to a new series.
