Not long ago I got an email from the Revell Reads program letting me know what books were available for review. You get to choose a book or two in return for posting an honest review of the book(s). I used to do this on a semi-frequent basis but then life got in the way and I stopped. I decided that since I had wanted to get back into writing in this space that doing a book review would be worthwhile and a way to force me to get back here.
One of the books available was Two Steps Forward by Suzanne Woods Fisher. Two Steps Forward is the third book in a series where I’d already read books one and two. I enjoy Fisher’s novels because they are well written and touch on subjects that might not always be rosy.
In Two Steps Forward, Fisher does a lovely job of painting word pictures that I can visualize in my mind and make me feel like I am there. I am thinking specifically about how she describes the state of the farm, the horse and the horse corral. Her descriptions are complete and thorough. She weaves a depth into her characters that make me feel like I know them.
This is the third and I believe the final book in this series. This book can be read as a stand-alone novel. However, I would encourage you to read all of the books if you enjoy Amish fiction.
I would like to thank Revell Publishing for this book and the opportunity to review it.
