A Season on the Wind by Suzanne Woods Fisher

A Season on the Wind

Ben Zook had only two loves in his life: books and birds. In a stroke of good fortune, he'd stumbled onto a way to cobble together those two loves into a career, writing books about rare birds. He was as free as a bird--until a chase for a rare White-winged Tern takes him to the one place on earth he planned to never return: his Amish home in Stoney Ridge.

Desperate for photographs of the elusive tern, Ben hires a local field guide, Micah Weaver, and boards at Micah's farm, planning to "bag the bird" and leave Stoney Ridge before anyone recognizes him. But he neglected to plan for Micah's sister, Penny. One long-ago summer, Penny had introduced Ben to birding, even sharing with him a hidden eagle aerie. That eagle became his spark bird--the one that inspired his lifelong love.

Ben. He was Penny's spark bird. That was when she knew true love. She'd always hoped Ben would come back to Stoney Ridge. Back to his Amish roots. Back to her. The only problem? Ben has absolutely no memory of Penny.

Bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher welcomes her readers to the Amish community at Stoney Ridge in this engaging story of discovering just who the rare birds are in life.


Enjoyable, informative, and oh, so heartwarming! These are just a few of my thoughts about this new book by Suzanne Woods Fisher! A Season on the Wind is the story of a man who had been raised Amish, left the community with intentions to never return, and then finds himself back in Stoney Ridge, Pennsylvania, trying to photograph a rare bird. There he meets an Amish brother and sister who also love birds, and Ben Zook may have his dream come true!

Ben, Penny, and Micah are wonderful characters, and Fisher poignantly depicts the special connection that they forge with each other as they chase the elusive White-winged Tern. We see how their past experiences have affected them, and we witness the healing that comes from being forgiven. There is sweet romance, but more importantly, Fisher shares a powerful message of faith.
I really like that Woods supplies a list of characters and a birder's glossary at the front of the book but I loved that at the end of each chapter there is an entry from the 'Micah Weaver, Bird-Watching Log'. I learned so much about different bird species and reading this book has given me a desire to become a bird watcher!

A Season on the Wind is a captivating book that satisfied my love for romance and impressed upon me the joys that come from truly observing God's creation. I highly recommend this book to all who enjoy Amish fiction and Christian romance. You won't be disappointed!

I accepted this book from the publisher as part of Revell Reads. There was no obligation for a positive review. These are my own thoughts.
