Back and broke in Stoney Ridge, Jimmy Fisher has coasted as long as he could through life on charm, good looks, and deep-set dimples. They always worked just fine for him–until they didn’t. His smile has no effect on the violet-eyed beauty he met at the Bent N’ Dent, the one with that stunning horse. She’s offered him a job, but nothing else.
The last thing Sylvie Schrock King needs around Rising Star Farm is a grown boy working for her, especially her neighbor Edith’s son. The woman holds a serious grudge against Sylvie and her son, and hiring Jimmy Fisher will only fan the flames of Edith’s rancor. But Sylvie is desperate for help on the farm, and Jimmy understands horses like no one else.
While Jimmy’s lazy smile and teasing ways steal Sylvie’s heart, Edith is working on a way to claim her land. Has Sylvie made another terrible mistake? Or is it too late to outfox the fox? More importantly . . . just who is the fox?
Writing with both wit and warmth, Fisher delivers a supremely satisfying conclusion to the popular Deacon’s Family series.
About The Author
Suzanne Woods Fisher has a specialty: she writes about real people living in faith-based communities. With over 750,000 copies of books sold worldwide, she is the bestselling, award-winning author of more than twenty-five books, ranging from children’s books (‘The Adventures of Lily Lapp’ series) to novels (“The Choice”) to non-fiction books (“Amish Peace: Simple Living for a Complicated World”).
When Suzanne isn’t writing, she’s probably playing with puppies. She’s been involved with Guide Dogs for the Blind for over fifteen years. Raising puppies, she says, is like eating a potato chip. You just can’t stop at one.

This third installment of The Deacon’s Family series wrapped up many loose ends from books one and two. The disappointment, for me, was that Luke’s brother, Sam was only mentioned twice and his wife wasn’t mentioned at all. I think book two hinted at some concerns about Sam’s wife. Those concerns were never resolved. I was hoping to find closure on that subject in this third and final book of the series, but did not.
Suzanne Woods Fisher is one of my favorite Amish book authors. She is a true storyteller in that she draws you into a story and allows you to feel as if you are a member of a family or inside a circle of friends. In Two Steps Forward the Spiritual content is wonderful as well. There are examples of how some people confuse religion and Christianity. Being a Christian is having a relationship with Christ, not just going through motions and man made rules. Also, this story shares how the Amish and all Christians depend upon God in various situations. And shows that anything worth having is worth working for. God’s timing is always right and NOTHING is impossible with Him, our Heavenly Father.

When you read it let me know if you know what I’m talking about. I think you will. It’s still a good book, though.
