Book Review: Along Wooded Paths

About the book: 
All she wanted was a simple Amish life . . . But now Marianna Sommer finds herself depending on Englisch neighbors. Although proud of living apart from the world, she and her newly relocated Amish family have discovered that life in the remote mountains of Montana requires working together.

As Marianna begins helping those different from herself—and receiving their help—her heart contemplates 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 closer walk with God than she’s ever seen before.

Who should have young Marianna’s heart? What is God asking her to sacrifice? Her traditions? Her community? The answer is found along the wooded paths.

I was a huge fan of Tricia Goyer's first book in this series, Beside Still Waters, because I loved the Montana setting (my home state!) and I loved the storyline!

Along Wooded Paths is no different! I love the unique storyline about how Marianna is torn between an Amish man and an Englischer! That is a storyline you don't see very often in Amish books and I loved it!
