The Quieting is the second book in The Bishop Family series, written by Suzanne Woods Fisher. In the first book we meet Pastor David Stoltzfus and his family. In this book we get to catch up with them.
David Stoltzfus is a widower with 4 daughters still at home. David’s sister and mother feel he needs help taking care of his family so his Mother and 2 nieces arrive to help him. His mother and niece have taken over and organized his home and store and take over cooking meals. David is frustrated with this but he also enjoys having good cooked meals once again.
David’s niece, Abigail, helped her father with genealogy projects. She has come to realize she is doing research for one of David’s neighbors, Dane Glick, nephew of Bishop Freeman Glick. She finds out the Glick family history is not what the Glick family wants everyone to believe it is.
David is the minister at the local church and has reported to the ministers that Bishop Freeman Glick has wrongfully made himself Bishop. Bishop Glick also makes accusations again David. This starts an investigation within the church family.
I really like this story. It is the second in the series but it is written in such a way that if you have not read book one, you would have enough background to understand the story. This is a story of family, the love they have for each other, and how they care about each other. I like how the book shows us how the family fellowships together, reading the bible and learning together. I can’t wait for the next book in the series.
I received a copy of this book from Revell and Baker Publishing Group for an honest review.
I give this book a 5.
