The Devoted Review and Giveaway!!!!!!!

The Devoted by Suzanne Woods Fisher

Book Description:
To purchase your copy, click here.
Restless and adventurous, Ruthie Stoltzfus is right on the cusp of leaving her Amish home. Secretly, she’s earned her GED, saved her money—but she can’t quite set her journey into motion. Just as everything falls into place, along comes Patrick Kelly.
Patrick is a young man on a journey of his own. He’s come to Stoney Ridge to convert to the Amish and has given himself thirty days to learn the language, drive a buggy, and adapt to “everything Plain.” Time is of the essence and every moment is to be cherished—especially the hours he spends with Ruthie, his Penn Dutch tutor.
Ruthie’s next-door neighbor and cunning ex-boyfriend, Luke Schrock, is drawn to trouble like a moth to a flame. Rebellious, headstrong, defiant, Luke will do anything to win Ruthie back—and Patrick Kelly is in his way.
Bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher invites you back to Stoney Ridge for a story of dreams deferred—and the promise of hopes fulfilled.

My Opinion:
OH SO GOOD!!!!!  The end it bittersweet though!  I SO DID NOT want this series to end!  The only thing that kept me from being too sad was knowing (hoping) that Suzanne will continue to use these characters or at least let us know what they're up to.... RIGHT SUZANNE?! ;)  This is my favorite series that I've read from Suzanne so far!  This family has been one of my favorites and this book in particular touched my heart in so many ways!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Spiritual lessons these characters learn through this journey.  There are sad moments that made me cry, but then right after there's a light hearted scene that made me laugh through the tears!  David is becoming such a good bishop, but he faces much turmoil in his new role.  And I truly loved the slight parallelism between two of my favorite characters Ruthie and Dok.  Filled with love, humor, joy, sadness, surprises, shocks, new beginnings, and ends, this final story in The Bishop's Family series is so full it will leave you reflective and longing for more!  I HIGHLY recommend this read and this whole series!!!
