Book Review: The Rescue

10 Jul

Fisher_TheRescue_EbooksmHe’s taking a chance on love . . . and there’s no plan B.

Will Stoltz has returned to Stoney Ridge with a clear plan. He’s opening a wild bird rescue center and is determined to rekindle his fizzled romance with Jackie Colombo, the veterinarian who stole his heart. But nothing is working out as Will planned. The leased building for the rescue center is a disaster, his funding is rapidly dwindling, and Jackie Colombo has disappeared without a trace.

When an injured eagle is found in a pasture near the Inn at Eagle Hill, Will is desperate to prove to himself, to his skeptical father, and to everyone else that his mission has not been in vain. But even the best laid plans are no match for fate.

My Impressions:

Return to Stoney Ridge and the Inn at Eagle Hill in the ebook novella, The Rescue by Suzanne Woods Fisher. A sweet story set in Amish country, fans of Fisher’s books will recognize favorite characters, including Luke, Rose Schrock’s mischief-loving son. The story revolves around Englisher Will Stoltz, newly licensed veterinarian, who is stepping out of his comfort zone to start a non-profit wild bird rescue center. The community welcomes him with open arms, but the future he envisioned is just not working out. Low on funds and unable to find out just what happened to Jackie, another vet he is interested in, Will realizes through the wise words and loving actions of his Amish neighbors that surrender to God is best. Other themes touched on are the relationship between fathers and sons and the sovereignty of God. If you are looking for another sweet taste of the simple life in Stoney Ridge, then definitely check out The Rescue.
