An Enjoyable Story From the First Page to the Last
A Road Unknown is the first book that I have read by Barbara Cameron, and one that I enjoyed very much. The author held my attention from the first page to the last. I thought she brought the characters to life beginning with the first paragraph; and I immediately felt connected to the main character, Elizabeth Bontrager.
Elizabeth, the oldest of eight children, is tired of working during the day and spending the rest of her time helping her mamm when she is home. She is concerned that she will never have the chance to date or marry, because she is never allowed to attend any of the youth gatherings.
When Elizabeth's Englisch pen pal, Paula, who lives in Pennsylvania offers to let her be her roommate, Elizabeth jumps at the chance to experience life outside of her community. Even though her parents don’t want her to leave, she boards the bus for the trip to Paradise, Pennsylvania to start her new life. Will she find what she is looking for, or will she bow to the pressure from her family to return home?
Saul Miller was attracted to Elizabeth from the moment he met her on the bus to Paradise. When he learns that she is looking for a job, he hires her for a temporary position at his family's store; thinking that it would be the perfect opportunity to get to know her better. But she is so reluctant to talk about herself that he doesn’t know if she will ever open up to him. When he finds out that she is spending time with an Englisch guy he is concerned for her. He wonders if he will be able to win her heart, or if it has already been captured by another.
A Road Unknown is the first book in author Barbara Cameron's new Amish Roads series. I am looking forward to reading the next book -- Crossroads -- when it is available
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?
