A Road Unknown


About The Book:  Elizabeth is at a crossroad. Will rumschpringe lead her away? Or bring her home? She's been given the chance to experience life outside of her community, away from the responsibility to care for her eight younger siblings, but Elizabeth Bontrager can't decide which road to take. Goshen has its charms and pressures, but Paradise, Pennsylvania, sounds . . . well, like paradise. And it's also home to her Englisch friend, Paula. Decision made. Elizabeth is Paradise bound. But will the small town live up to its name? When Elizabeth meets Paula's friend, Bruce, she quickly learns he wants more than a friendship. And the same might be true of Saul Miller, her new boss at the country story that sells Amish products to the Englisch community. As the two compete for her attention, Elizabeth is surprised to realize she misses her family and becomes even more uncertain about where she belongs. She has a choice to make: return home or embrace this new life and possibly a new love?

My Thoughts On The Book:  This was my first book by Barbara Cameron so I had no clue what to expect.  I found the basic storyline quite inviting and there was a fresh and different look at traditional  Amish fiction I've read in the past. The story moved along at a good pace and the characters were very intereting.  I loved the theme of following God's plan for your life.  All in all this novel should appeal to all fans of Amish fiction.  They will surely find enjoyment in this story.  I cannot wait to read, Crossroads,  the next book in the series.   I enjoyed the little snippet of the second in the series at the end of the book and the discussion questions were quite thought provoking.

Hi Karen, I'm a new follower from the #atozchallenge! (I'm a sister minion from another mother - AJ's Hooligans!)

I love Amish fiction, and appreciate your review of "A Road Unknown". There is actually a thriving Amish community in my county in Kentucky.

Hope to 'see' you at the #atozchallenge chat on Twitter tomorrow!
