Review: The Revealing by: Suzanne Woods Fisher
About the Book:
Naomi King, soft spoken, loyal, and easily overlooked, has a gift. She sees what others can't see. Intuition, she calls it. Others in Stoney Ridge don't know what to make of it and dismiss her hunches and inklings altogether.
When a young woman arrives at the Inn at Eagle Hill with a shocking secret about Tobe Schrock, Naomi fears the worst. She can't ignore the feeling that something sinister is at work-- something more than a threat to the tenuous love begun between her and Tobe.
As signs mount, they begin to point to Jake Hertzler, the elusive mastermind behind Schrock Investments' downfall. Soon, events spiral hopelessly out of control and Naomi must decide whether to listen to her head or her heart.
In this riveting conclusion to The Inn at Eagle Hill series, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher pulls out all the stops with a fast-paced tale of deception, revelation, and just the right dose of romance.

In the final book of The Inn at Eagle Hill series, we find that Naomi has to come clean to her brother about her feelings for Tobe Schrock. Not only does she fear her brothers reaction based on the fact he simply does not like the man, but also because Tobe is in prison. It is unnerving to say the least. But all of that will change today because Tobe is getting out of prison and its time for Naomi to let it all out, and she is very nervous about telling her brother about her love for Tobe.
Galen asks Rose Schrock to marry him, which isn't strange but the way he ask was a little odd. He comes to visit Rose to ask her about the fact that his sister Naomi is acting strangely and then all of a sudden pops the question. But I guess Galen being a man of few words, this should make total sense. Even Rose was more than a little bewildered by his proposal, but that doesn't stop when because she accepts.
A stirring mystery and a dash of romance lend to the broad storyline of many lives melting together like a cool, spring morn. The lives of this Amish community ever changing keeps the story and characters as fresh as a spring rain.
