It started with The Keeper, and now continues with The Haven. In the first book we met the Lapp family, and had a pretty big adventure. That didn't slow down with this book either. Sadie Lapp, the middle of the three Lapp girls is returning home. Only she isn't coming back home as she expected, she is coming home with a baby! Yes, an unwed Amish young woman with a baby in tow. Instantly people mange to start rumors about who the baby's father is, but they sort of forgot to ask Sadie a few very important questions. Especially Gid. Gideon sees Sadie with the new English boy Will and jumps to conclusions of his own! M.K., Sadie's little sister is blurting out things that are getting contorted and totally out of hand and M.K doesn't even know what all she has done wrong. As Will lives in the cottage that was once Roman's (from The Keeper) he is tracking the progress of a nest of rare breed falcons, and helping Sadie and her family with the baby.
Why should the Lapp family keep this baby, and what kind of repercussions will Sadie and her family face if they do? What are they going to do with Stern Fern, and is Amos Lapp's body rejecting his son Menno's heart?
There is a great deal going on in this book with multiple situations and I only covered a very few. I enjoyed learning more about what happened with the Lapp family after their oldest daughter moved with her husband. I wasn't totally wild about the way this book ended, but I am hoping that the changes that are yet to come will be in the third book.
