The Devoted is the third novel in the Bishop’s Family series and follows the character of Ruthie Stoltzfus. She is 17 years old and is at somewhat of a crossroads. Will she stay with the Amish faith that she grew up with or will she leave this place for the ways of the world? Helping add to Ruthie’s indecision are two men, one Amish the other an Englischer, who are both interested in her. Helping to guide Ruthie and the other characters is David Stoltzfus, her father and the Bishop.

Every character in this novel is beautifully well written and well rounded and each one grows from the beginning to the end of the novel. I have read several of Suzanne Woods Fisher’s novels and I have grown to love the town of Stony Ridge. Lovers of her previous novels or Amish fiction in general will be enamored by this new book.

I received this novel from the publisher. A positive review was not required and all opinions expressed are my own.
