Review: The Return by:Suzanne Woods Fisher

 The Return (Amish Beginnings #3)
About the Book:
Beautiful and winsome, Betsy Zook never questioned her family's rigid expectations, nor those of devoted Hans, but then she never had to. Not until the night when she's taken captive in a surprise Indian raid. During her captivity, Betsy faces brutality and hardship, but also unexpected kindness. She draws strength from native Caleb, who encourages her to find God in all circumstances. She finds herself torn between her pious upbringing and the intense new feelings this compelling man awakens within her.
Handsome and complex, Hans is greatly anguished by Betsy's captivity and turns to Tessa Bauer for comfort. Eagerly, Tessa responds, overlooking troubling signs of Hans's hunger for revenge. When Betsy is finally restored to the Amish, have things gone too far between Hans and Tessa?
Inspired by true events, this deeply layered novel gives a glimpse into the tumultuous days of pre-revolutionary Pennsylvania through the eyes of two young, determined, and faith-filled women.


My Review:
 Betsy is a good God fearing woman that was dealt a heavy blow that made me very sad. She has to find God in everything to keep her sanity. This is a great read, because on one hand it is very gripping and filled with suspense and on the other hand it has romance too. But the romance seems all wrong and mixed up and not the way God intended.

 Suzanne Woods Fisher managed to hit this one out of the ballpark. It will not leave you disappointed. It grips you. I was so fearful of the situation that Betsy found herself in. Will all this turn out okay? Will Betsy be returned to her Amish life? Will she want to go back? All fantastic questions that will force you to read this book.
