This is the first book in the Bishop’s Family series and I can’t wait for the next one! I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Luke’s road to redemption. Luke had been a trouble maker and did some harmful when he was young.
Ms Fisher gives us a wonderful story of second chances, making amends and finding your way back to God and community.
Life happens and the “Eight” didn’t get together as often as they used to. They’re together now though. Well, seven of them are. They’re at a funeral. Andy’s funeral. Not only one of their own but their leader. The worse part, he killed himself.
This story starts out on a sad note and is filled with so many emotions. Anger, blame, hurt, love. Promises were made. Promises to stay better connected with each other. Questions, so many questions. How could Andy have done that? Why didn’t he reach out to any of them? They were a close-knit group of life-long friends. How did they not see he was troubled?
This story captures your attention from the first paragraph and keeps you wanting more. You can’t put the book down. You have to see how these friends, from three different cultures, help each other deal with their loss.
Follow the lives of the remaining “Eight” and watch friendships get stronger. Some even turn to more. See who makes sacrifices to be with the one they love.
When Andy Warner got a call from his little sister Tricia while he and his parents were in Florida, he knew exactly what to do. He called Logan Clark. Logan was his best friend and, along with Andy, a member of the Eight. As children, this group, some Amish, some Mennonite, and some English, had formed a fast friendship and a deep bond. They made a pact to always be there for each other. Now in their twenties, that bond still held.
All the Warners where supposed to go on vacation but Tricia hadn’t wanted to go. What she did do however, was very reckless. She went to the family cabin in the woods and got stuck there due to a bad snow storm. What a predicament she had gotten herself in! The power was out. Her phone was dying. The only way she could charge it was to go out to the car. It was freezing and she was alone in the middle of nowhere. Until she wasn’t.
Pick up a copy of Gray’s newest novella. You won’t be able to put it down! Read Tricia’s story. Find out who went to her rescue and what happened in the cabin.
