The Calling by Suzanne Woods Fisher takes the reader again back to The Inn at Eagle Hill Book. This time the book looks at Bethany Schrock. She is the oldest child in the family, and she is spending her summer helping five elderly sisters clean out their house. She soon finds out that the women spend their time running a soup kitchen for the “down and out” people in the community. There is also some romance in the book. Jimmy Fisher has feelings for Bethany, but she just had a bad experience with Jake Hertzler, which is detailed in the first book. She doesn’t seem to want to have anything to do with Jimmy. She also has questions about her past, specifically where her mother is and why she left her.
While Bethany is working thru her past, Geena, a youth leader, is staying at The Inn at Eagle Hill after being fired from her position. She also finds herself helping the five sisters with their mission of feeding the people in their community who are needy.
I really liked all of the characters in this book. They seemed to be going thru very realistic problems that even non-Amish people can relate to. I cannot wait until the third book in this series comes out so I can learn more about the people who live at The Inn at Eagle Hill.
