The Waiting: This is the second book in the Lancaster County Secrets series. The great thing about this novel is that it is standalone; thus you do not necessarily have to read the first book in the series. In this book, Ms. Fisher introduces the reader to Jorie King. Jorie is quite satisfied with her grandparent’s farm, which is located in Percheron. Her lover and best friend had left off for the war as a contentious subject. Due to this fact, she has never felt the need to date anyone else. Her great friend, Maryanne resides close by with Caleb, Ben’s brother and she deeply loves the children who reside in the house. She is also excited when she is selected as the schoolteacher. Not everyone is happy with the fact that Maryanne was appointed as the teacher. Jorie, on the other hand, must deal with the sting disapproval and the sharp insults from some section of the Amish.
With that said, Jorie is an exceedingly strong character. Despite the fact that she is still very Amish, she is quite independent. Furthermore, she is a person who valued education so much. She is the type of woman who knows what she wants and is quite patient to get it. Caleb, on the other hand, is many at times confused.

The plot was fine, and the book is set during the Vietnam I war. This is a quick read which has been infused with a small love story.
