About the Book 

Book: Lost and Found
Author: Suzanne Woods Fisher
Genre: Christian Amish Ficion
Publisher: Revell
Release Date: September 26, 2023

Trudy Yoder shares a passion for birding with Micah Weaver--and she has an even greater passion for Micah. Their friendship is finally turning romantic when Micah abruptly grows cold. Worse still, he wants to leave Stoney Ridge.

Micah Weaver thought he was over Trudy's older sister. A year and a half ago, Shelley had broken his heart when she ran away from Stoney Ridge to pursue a singing career in Nashville. Then, out of the blue, she's started to leave distressing phone messages for him.

When the bishop asks for volunteers to scout out a possible church relocation in Tennessee, Micah is the first to raise his hand. Despite scant details, he's confident he can find Shelley. After all, his reputation as a field guide is based on finding birds that don't want to be found.

What Micah doesn't know is that what you're looking for isn't always what you find.

My Thoughts


It was nice to return to the town of Stoney Ridge and spend some time amongst the Old Order Amish. Though this is a stand alone you do encounter various people from her other books in this one. I had just recently read her book Anything but Plain which took me back to the same family in this book. It's always great reading a book in which the characters are familiar. 

In this story we meet Trudy and Micah. Both love birding and both have feelings for each other although you can't really tell with Micah as he is pretty shy when it comes to that sort of thing. I really enjoyed this topic of birding. I don't think I have read another book with that topic and I really enjoyed that Trudy found deeper Godly meaning on what people may relate to birds to.  Although they are the main characters of the story there are other storylines within the book. One of the most important ones are the changes occurring in the Order due to the Beachy Amish moving close by and buying land so close to them.

Overall I thought it was a good book. It did move a little slower for me so it didn't completely capture me. However I really enjoyed the spiritual thread throughout the story and the truths sprinkled throughout that made you stop and ponder. 

I received a copy of this book for review. I was not required to post a positive review. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.
