Although I didn’t review it on my blog I actually read the first book in the Stoney Ridge Series ( The Keeper ) right after it first came out.
I was immediately hooked by idea of a series that focuses on the sisters in the family-in this case Julia, Sadie, and the ever precocious M.K. It was an interesting and unique angle. As you read you realize that many of the main character are indeed that-main characters. There are many different sub plots and twists and turns throughout the novel. While the ever so present love triangle popped it’s head up there was enough depth and richness in the rest of the story line that it still felt fresh.
I was especially shocked at how the first story ended–it made me cry but I loved the uniqueness and beauty of it.
All of that left me eagerly awaiting the second book in the series, The Haven. One thing that I love about the series is how each child in the family is so completely and utterly different from the others–in looks and personalities. This really rings true to life to me as my own family of 4 kids growing up was much the same way. This book focuses on the shy and soft spoken Sadie. I enjoyed the continued story with the plot and sub plots as thick and juicy as the first book, and as the book ends on a bit of a cliff hanger I’m left anxiously awaiting the next book in the series.
Even if you are not a huge fan of Amish fiction you should give this series a chance–it is focused around faith, love, and family-something we can all hopefully relate to!
