Guest Book Review and Revell Blog Tour: The Search by Suzanne Woods Fisher

I found the book, "The Search" by Suzanne Woods Fisher an easy and enjoyable read.  Characters were introduced in a manner that was easy to follow.  The story was one that kept my interest.  I enjoyed reading how the lives of Lainey, Bess, Jonah and Bertha collided.  The story might come across as having a somber tone, but was kept lively with witty humor.  I especially fell in love with the “giant” of a woman, Mammi Bertha and her hard to penetrate exterior mixed with her soft side.  She was the "glue" to the story and kept it funny and light.  I liked the fact that she was resourceful and was able to maintain her farm after her husband's passing.  The other aspects of the story held a more "secret" side and although revealed early on to the reader, kept other characters in the book from "knowing" the truth.  It is a love story on more than one level as well as a "coming together" of family that was torn apart by grief.
This review your honest opinion. Thanks to the publishers for my copy to review.

  3. @Renee Ann, I know, it was fun!!

    @I know, right Julia? It was good!

    She made me promise to never offer her another book to review again though. LOL, another story of WHOLE another time. Unless she happens to stop by today. ;)

    Oh, the stress this produced! Ugh. Not because of the story line, which I thoroughly enjoyed as mentioned, but because I do not enjoy writing and am not very good at it. Casey's amazing talent comes from her father, not from her Mama. I was just greedy enough to want the book to read so agreed to write the review. :) Don't know how eager I'll bee next time. LOL.

  5. Hi Casey's mom! Thanks so much for reading and writing the review of "The Search!" How fun to discover a guest reviewer at Casey's site! Really glad you enjoyed the story, Sue. And Casey...thanks for being part of the blog tour! Warmly, Suzanne Fisher


Thank you so much for stopping by, I love to hear from those who traffic my blog! Have a wonderful day. :)
