The Quieting (Bishop's Family, #2) by Suzanne Woods Fisher

Bestselling Author Delivers the Intrigue and Romance Fans Crave
The Stoltzfus family faces serious problems, both in the church and at home. Everyone in the community expects minister David Stoltzfus to fix things--fast. But David doesn't work fast. He prefers to wait for God to work in individual hearts. However, even he is left wondering if the solution to their most pressing problem might be a Quieting.
When David's mother arrives, uninvited, more upheaval is in store. She has matchmaking plans for everyone in the family, including David and her eligible granddaughters--and especially for David's niece Abigail. When Abigail stumbles onto a curious connection during her genealogical research, it could help David solve one problem--but will it create another?
Bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher takes fans back to Stoney Ridge, delivering the twists, turns, and romance they adore.

My Review

As the second book in this series opens we are back in Stoney Ridge, and back with the problems that arose in the first book, the fixing of the lot.
David and his family, whom we met previously, are struggling with the arrival of their mom/grandmother, and she sure has them jumping. When grandma arrives she brings two of her other granddaughters with her. Families cross here, and I cringed with delightful Birdie was instantly disliked by grandma, and I felt it was because she was a Glick.
David is struggling with the knowledge he has about the bibles and the papers rigging, and when Bishop Glick doesn’t seem inclined to do anything about it, prayers and soul searching begin.
Pride is one of the big struggles here and we hope that no one gets hurt, that the district isn’t torn apart and that God is put first here. Add another Stoltzfus and Glick relationship to the mix with granddaughter Abigail doing geneology and ends up working with Dane Glick. Seems the town is full of Glicks, and if that isn’t their last name they are related.
Watch as this story unfolds and God places his hand on these people, we might not get the answers we are hoping for, but this is what is planned. Enjoy!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Revell, and was not required to give a positive review.
