Along Wooded Paths by Tricia Goyer - Don't miss the Facebook Party!

About the Book:

Although proud of living apart from the world, Marianna Sommer's newly relocated Amish family is discovering that life in the remote mountains of Montana requires working together with the Englisch.

As Marianna pours her life into helping those around her-and receiving their help-her heart further considers two directions. She's torn between the Amish man from Indiana whom she has long planned on marrying and the friendly Englischer who models a close walk with God like she’s never seen before.

Who should have young Marianna's heart? What is God asking of her through ongoing family struggles and this romantic and spiritual tension? The answer is found along the wooded paths.

My Thoughts:

Tricia Goyer knows how to take an Amish community and introduce the life changing truth of the gospel! This is the second in the Big Sky series, and Tricia explores some pretty complicated relationship issues. Not only does she explore the English/Amish relationship in context of the gospel, but she explores deep emotional ties between parents and the children they love - both living and dead. She also explores the Amish tradition and rules and the effect it has long term on families and friendships. In short, Along Wooded Paths explores all of life's complexities in the light of the Truth of God's Word - whether Amish or English!

Tricia Goyer's stories are multi-layered and rich in both character development and emotional depth. Your heart will ache along with the characters when they ache, and will rejoice when they rejoice! Tricia, you have created a stellar series, and I eagerly await the next installment! That teaser chapter at the end!! Wow!
