The Quieting by Suzanne Woods Fisher

The Quieting was right up my alley!  Why?  Because it was about GENEALOGY! And it was AMISH.  What combination would I love better than that.  I actually had written to several Amish authors suggesting a genealogy theme because I personally have done quite a bit of Amish and Mennonite research as a part of my occupation as a professional German genealogist.  Their genealogy that I personally researched was fascinating and I love how Ms. Fisher wove it into the theme of a great story.  It's been something I have been totally watching and waiting to see happen.  I am glad it did!

I really enjoyed the characters in the story and the events that took place up to the time of the "Quieting" or the revocation of ministerial positions.  This was a great book and I am so glad I was able to read it!

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley for my honest review.


  1. Hi Sonja! Interesting to discover that part of your profession is German genealogy. I should have used you for my research! Thank you for reading my book and for writing up a review on it. Really enjoyed learning more about you! Warmly, Suzanne

  2. Thank so much for your sweet comment!
