Litfuse Publicity: A Road Unknown (Book 1 Amish Roads Series) by Barbara Cameron #grow4christ

on February 24, 2014

About the Book:

Book 1 in the new Amish Roads series

Elizabeth is at a crossroad. 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?

You can purchase a copy on Amazon.

My Opinion:

I think Barbara Cameron just became one of my favorite authors – I’ve not read anything else by her but A Road Unknown which is the first book in her new series titled, Amish Roads Series, was great!  Elizabeth Bontrager doesn’t know where she belongs or what she should do with her life, so when we meet her she’s boarding a bus from Goshen to Paradise and she struggles with her choice to leave her family to find out what God wants of her.  Saul Miller is also boarding the bus back to his home and store in Paradise and helps Elizabeth with a stranger who is making trouble for the young Amish woman – God does work in mysterious ways.

Elizabeth learns who she can trust and also where God wants her to be – and she even begins to entertain the notion that she’d like to have children of her own, realizing taking care of siblings is not the same thing.  There is some twists that occur which make the book and exciting read and not just a romance, so I appreciated that and Saul and Elizabeth’s romance is quite chaste, another aspect I appreciated.  The only reason I wouldn’t give this to my oldest daughter would be Elizabeth’s and her room mate discussing what “men really want” but overall this was a great book and I look forward to reading the second book, Crossroads, when it’s released.
