Book Review: Along Wooded Paths

ABOUT THE BOOK: (back cover)
All she wanted was a simple Amish Life.....but now Marianna Sommer finds herself depending on Englisch neighbors.  Although proud of living apart from the world, she and her newly relocated Amish family have discovered that life in the remote mountains of Montana requires working together.

As Marianna begins helping those different from herself-and receiving their help-her heart contemplates two directions.  She's torn between the Amish man from Indiana whom she has long planned on marrying and the friendly Englischer who models a closer walk with God than she's ever seen before.

Who should have young Marianna's heart?  What is God asking her to sacrifice?  Her traditions?  Her community?  The answer is found along the wooded paths.

Loved this book!  Tricia Goyer is a heart felt writer and once again, she grabbed me right from the beginning of the story and kept me right up to the very last page.

Have you ever been torn between two people, or two things, not knowing what on earth to do, if so, you'll feel right at home as you read about Marianna's torn heart.  Her mom means well when inviting Aaron to visit from Indiana, but even she could not have been prepared for the consequences!  You'll have to read the book to see how everything turns out for Marianna as she struggles to decide which direction her heart will lead her.  As I read I found myself rooting for Aaron on one page, then for her Englisch friend, Ben on the next, I was as torn as Marianna!

Trust me, it will be well worth the read, see for yourself who you would choose, and who Marianna ends up choosing!
