Fifteen years ago, Lainey O’Toole made a split-second decision. She couldn’t have known that her choice would impact so many. Now in her mid-twenties, she is poised to go to culinary school when her car breaks down in Stoney Ridge, the very Amish town in which her long-reaching decision was made, forcing her to face the shadowed past.

Bess Reihl is less than thrilled to be spending the summer at Rose Hill Farm with her large and intimidating grandmother, Bertha. It quickly becomes clear that she is there to work the farm—and work hard. The labor is made slightly more tolerable by the time it affords Bess to spend with the handsome hired hand, Billy Lapp. But he only has eyes for a flirty and curvaceous older girl.

Lainey’s and Bess’ worlds are about to collide and the secrets that come to light will shock them both.

Beautifully written, The Search is a skillfully woven story that takes readers through unexpected twists and turns on the long country road toward truth. Fans both old and new will find themselves immersed in this heartwarming—and surprising—tale of young love, forgiveness, and coming to grips with the past.

    " I picked this up on a whim in a library and was pleasantly surprised. It was a little predictable, but well written for an easy and enjoyable read. I am looking forward to reading the other stories in this series. "

    " Awesome book, it was the third in the series, but I didn't know it until the end. It made no difference that I read it out of order. It was a wonderful story line. It was a bit different from most of what I have read lately, but it was refreshing change. I absolutely loved it and can't wait to read the other ones in this series. I was familiar with the areas mentioned in the book and I found that pretty cool. Love the contrasts of the amish and english ways. "

    " Again, this book could be a stand alone. It took place in 1970 whereas other books in the series took place in the '40's and in modern times. There is no overlap in characters or families so reading these books as stand alones or out of order is fine. "

    " A nice book to read about the Amish; I enjoy Fisher's writing style. Since I've been to Lancaster County a couple of times and visited the home of some Amish (friends of my BIL), I could close my eyes and see the entire landscape of Rose Hill Farm. Definately an enjoyable trip to PA again. "
