WOW! WOW! WOW!
I am thrilled to be able to review Anna’s Crossing TODAY!
Everyone… and I mean everyone… should read this book!
It doesn’t matter if you are a fan of the Amish or not. It doesn’t matter if you are a fan of nautical themes or not. It doesn’t matter if you are a fan of history or not.
It is just an exceptional book and I believe that absolutely anyone can read it and enjoy it – as much as I DID!
I can hardly believe I once put down one of Suzanne Woods Fisher’s books without finishing it (at that time)… For the record, I gave her books another chance shortly after that and I am a devoted fan!!! I read EVERY book she puts out as fast as I can get my hands on it!
Suzanne has such an amazing ability and talent. She is truly a blessed storyteller! If you haven’t read anything else by Suzanne, DO NOT let that stop you from reading Anna’s Crossing!
Not only would this book be an amazing introduction to Suzanne’s writing, it is an exceptional look at who the Amish are and why!
It is a captivating read filled with vibrant characters and rich history! I don’t know how Suzanne did her research but she did it WELL!
Please… please, read this book. Please do not miss this exceptional story of loss, love and God’s amazing supernatural power!

Here’s a bit more about Anna’s Crossing from Revell:
“This novel is a winner.”–Publishers Weekly
Some endings are really beginnings . . .
On a hot day in 1737 in Rotterdam, Anna König reluctantly sets foot on the Charming Nancy, a merchant ship that will carry her and her fellow Amish believers across the Atlantic to start a new life. As the only one in her community who can speak English, she feels compelled to go. But Anna is determined to complete this journey and return home–assuming she survives. She’s heard horrific tales of ocean crossings and worse ones of what lay ahead in the New World. But fearfulness is something Anna has never known.
Ship’s carpenter Bairn resents the somber people–dubbed Peculiars by the deckhands–who fill the lower deck of the Charming Nancy. All Bairn wants to do is to put his lonely past behind him, but that irksome and lovely lass Anna and her people keep intruding on him.
Delays, storms, illness, and diminishing provisions test the mettle and patience of everyone on board. When Anna is caught in a life-threatening situation, Bairn makes a discovery that shakes his entire foundation. But has the revelation come too late?
Bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher invites you back to the beginning of Amish life in America with this fascinating glimpse into the first ocean crossing–and the lives of two intrepid people who braved it.
“I found Anna’s Crossing to be everything I love in a novel, especially in a historical novel! Fast paced, character driven, filled with rich descriptions and enjoyable dialogue.
