The Choice Book Review & Giveaway


About The Book:

Lancaster County has always been her home--but where does her heart belong?
One moment Carrie Weaver was looking forward to running away with Lancaster Barnstormers pitcher Solomon Riehl--plans that included leaving the Amish community where they grew up. The next moment she was staring into a future as broken as her heart. 

Now, Carrie is faced with a choice. But will this opportunity be all she hoped? Or will this decision, this moment in time, change her life forever?

A tender story of love, forgiveness, and looking below the surface, The Choice uncovers the sweet simplicity of the Amish world--and shows that it's never too late to find your way back to God.

You can read an excerpt of The Choice, here. (PDF file)


About The Author:


Suzanne Woods Fisher's interest in the Anabaptist cultures can be directly traced to her grandfather, W. D. Benedict, who was raised in the Dunkard Brethren Church in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Benedict eventually became publisher of Christianity Today magazine. Suzanne's work has appeared in many magazines. She has contributed to several nonfiction books and is the author of Amish Peace and the novel The Choice.

My Review:

I have long been a fan of Amish fiction, as it brings the reader back to a much simpler way of life, yet reminds us that even in a culture such as the Amish, there are trials and tribulations, good and bad times to deal with. The Choice was a well written novel with a strong, easy to follow plot. I absolutely loved the fact that a mystery was part of the plot, as I am also a fan of the mystery genre.

As this is a first in a series, I am looking forward to the next book, The Waiting, due to be released in October 2010.

I highly recommend this book to all Amish fiction fans and Christian fiction fans alike!
