Lost and Found by Suzanne Woods Fisher #ourgoodlifebooklist

 This book was provided by NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.

I look forward to Suzanne Woods Fishers new releases with the excitement of a six-year-old going to a birthday party!  Here are my thoughts about her latest book: Lost and Found.

A Summary from Amazon:

Trudy Yoder shares a passion for birding with Micah Weaver--and she has an even greater passion for Micah. Their friendship is finally turning romantic when Micah abruptly grows cold. Worse still, he wants to leave Stoney Ridge.

Micah Weaver thought he was over Trudy's older sister. A year and a half ago, Shelley had broken his heart when she ran away from Stoney Ridge to pursue a singing career in Nashville. Then, out of the blue, she's started to leave distressing phone messages for him.

When the bishop asks for volunteers to scout out a possible church relocation in Tennessee, Micah is the first to raise his hand. Despite scant details, he's confident he can find Shelley. After all, his reputation as a field guide is based on finding birds that don't want to be found.

What Micah doesn't know is that what you're looking for isn't always what you find.

My Take:

I am in love with these characters!  The community of Stoney Ridge has been written about by this author for several books and I look forward to the new situations that this community finds itself in.  One of my favorites is Hank Lapp, who knows what's going on and doesn't mind sharing it with everyone. A bit hard of hearing, Hank sometimes SHOUTS his WORDS.

I love that the author has many age groups represented and features different members of the community in her books.  It shows the importance of each member and how the bishop, David, considers his moves thoughtfully and carefully for his church.  There are several plot lines going back and forth in this book, but the one I enjoyed the most was the field notes that were at the end of each chapter on birding. So many life lessons shown here!

If you are new to Suzanne Woods Fisher's books, you can start at the beginning with book one or just start reading here.  Even though the characters stay the same throughout the books, you can read any one of them on its own. I was invested in this book and the outcome, and the approach to mental health that is so important to everyone.
