A new take on an Amish story, rarely do we see young Amish leaving home to stay Amish. They are on Rumschpringe, but this time Elizabeth is not trying to escape being Amish, she is just tired of all the work of eight younger brothers and sisters. I enjoyed this point of view of an Amish story. It was refreshing. The story was very good, I enjoyed it very much. We all face daily challenges and life happenings that tire us, how Elizabeth handled all that stress make this story more than a typical Amish youth on Rumschpring. Great story, looking forward to the next book in this series! 4 stars. This book was provided for review purposes only, no payment was received for this review.
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?
