A Road Unknown by Barbara Cameron

Book Description:
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 whichroad 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?

My Thoughts:
I really love Amish fiction.  Elizabeth has been given a chance to leave her home, responsibilities and start a new life adventure.  Paradise is her destination.  She will live in an English world while being Amish.  Two men take an interest in her (one Amish, one English).  As the time passes, Elizabeth realizes she misses her home but she does like her new life.
I really liked Elizabeth.  She was on such an exciting adventure and to go from living Amish to living with English conveniences had to be amazing.  Bruce seemed like a really great guy, as did Saul.  I honestly wasn't sure about Saul to begin with but as the story unfolded I liked him more and more.  This is a good, quick read and if you like Amish stories, you will love this book.
I rate this a 4/5.  It was a good read.
