Book Info and Book Review

Author: Barbara Cameron
Publisher: Abingdon Press
February 2014
ISBN: 978-1426740596
Genre: Amish

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?

A ROAD UNKNOWN is the first book in Ms. Cameron’s newest series Amish Roads. I enjoyed getting to know Elizabeth and Saul.  Elizabeth is experimenting with English life—but not in a run-around way, but because she is running away from home.

The romance is rather flat—the sparks non-existent, but those in the Christian market who like quiet romances without sexual tension would love this book. I enjoyed the concept—an Amish girl leaving home for another area and living with the English, but still she is very involved in the Amish community.

The misunderstanding between Saul and Elizabeth seemed rather contrived and forced, but other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed reading A ROAD UNKNOWN. Fans of Amish fiction who enjoy reading Wanda Brunstettler and Shelley Shepard Gray will enjoy A ROAD UNKNOWN. $14.99. 304 pages. 4.5 stars.
