Publisher's Summary

Elizabeth is at a crossroads. Will rumschpringe lead her away? Or bring her home? 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 store 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?

3 A Road Unknown Stars

This is not my normal category to say the least, I didn’t hate it but I didn’t love it either.

The story line was really quiet good but it was a little long and a little dull for me. If you break it down not much really happens but you do see the relationship between Saul and Elizabeth grow and those parts were interesting.

I liked getting to see Elizabeth grow up and put herself forward first and stand up for herself. Right from the beginning you know she isn’t a push over and is done with people telling her what to do.

I guess I just wished Saul had gotten his head out of his butt a little earlier because when they did come together it felt rushed to get to the end.

The narrator was ok, I didn’t really feel much emotion in her voice it was all kind of monotone to me. I found myself with my headphones off and doing something else then being like oh right the book. And I think a great narrator can make you be interested in a book even if the story isn’t really there.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

Delightful Story

I really enjoyed this audible. the narrator made it fun to listen to. The challenges presented had a clear message every believer could relate to.

Too many of the same names

Now I know why Mary Katherine is called Mary Katherine. Elizabeth's mother and sister, and Matthew's daughter are all named Mary Bontrager, by marriage or by birth. Is Jacob Miller from Book 1 related to this book's Saul Miller?
