The Quieting by Suzanne Woods Fisher

The Quieting (Bishop's Family, #2)Book Description:
Bestselling Author Delivers the Intrigue and Romance Fans Crave
The Stoltzfus family faces serious problems, both in the church and at home. Everyone in the community expects minister David Stoltzfus to fix things--fast. But David doesn't work fast. He prefers to wait for God to work in individual hearts. However, even he is left wondering if the solution to their most pressing problem might be a Quieting.
When David's mother arrives, uninvited, more upheaval is in store. She has matchmaking plans for everyone in the family, including David and her eligible granddaughters--and especially for David's niece Abigail. When Abigail stumbles onto a curious connection during her genealogical research, it could help David solve one problem--but will it create another?
Bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher takes fans back to Stoney Ridge, delivering the twists, turns, and romance they adore.

My Thoughts:
A good continuation of the series here.  This is the second book in this series and you really need to have read book 1 (The Imposter) to understand the characters and relationships.  David's family has issues and the bishop is a big part of it.  David doesn't jump into anything but waits on God and goes to Him for everything.  When his mother shows up and disrupts everything in his life, David goes about things in his quiet and deliberate ways.  
I really loved getting back to this town and 'seeing' everyone again.  Catching up where The Imposter left off, things are still not settled in the town.  I liked David, Birdy, and most all of the old characters.  I wasn't sure I was going to like David's mother, she somewhat grated on me, but she has a good heart.  Abigail takes life way too literally, but her research was really interesting and I did enjoy it.
It was a 4/5 for me.  I really did like the story and look forward to more from Stoney Ridge.
Thank you to the publisher for the review copy of this book.  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
