Suzanne Woods Fisher in her new book, “quieting book coverThe Quieting” Book Two in The Bishop Family series published by Revell introduces us to Abigail Stoltzfus.

From the back cover:  It was a well-laid plan–but it wasn’t her plan . . .

It’s all her grandmother’s fault. For the last few months, Abigail Stoltzfus has helped her father with his genealogical research, hoping that breaking through a client’s brick wall would also break his melancholy. But now her intrusive grandmother has set her sights on marrying off Abigail and insists she come to Stoney Ridge, where there is a plethora of eligible bachelors.

Except that Mammi is mistaken. There are no eligible bachelors in Stoney Ridge, barring one, and he’s all wrong. Dane Glick has the wrong last name and the wrong relatives–including the bishop who is at odds over a church matter with Abigail’s uncle, minister David Stoltzfus.

As the conflict grows, setting family against family, it’s becoming clear that the path to a solution may lead to a Quieting–a removal of a church leader. But for which one? And when Abigail stumbles onto a curious connection during her genealogical research, it could help David solve one problem–but will it create another?

Welcome back to Stoney Ridge. There is a lot of conflict in this town. It seems that there is real conflict between the Stoltzfus and the Glick. The Bishop, who is a Glick, is at odds with the Minister, who is a Stolzfus, and only one of them is going to win. In addition Grandma, who is a Stolzfus wants to marry off Abigail but she wants to do it with Dane, who is a Glick. There is a lot going on in this story. Ms. Fisher writes an interesting story that moves along at a remarkably brisk pace.  Ms. Fisher has given us new characters in Abigail and Dane to work with and she provides an excellent story for them to grow in. I am already looking forward to the next book in this series.
