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 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 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?

I totally enjoyed A Unknown Road. The story of Elizabeth’s plight for independence and growing up. She really desires to have a life of her own. She wants to know what life is like , not having to tend her kinner. She is longing for more. You will love her caring ways. Will she find that with Saul ? Will her parents let her go ? Will she find true happiness with Saul ? You will love the charm and wholesome adventure. This was the first book I have read of Barbara’s and I must say I love the way she weaves a tale. I like the way her story flows. What I really enjoyed is the way she incorporates the food that the Amish. She has included a wonderful recipe section in the back of the book and that is so awesome. After all, What is an amish story without food, right ? There are discussion questions as well , that make it a wonderful book for book clubs, church ladies groups. It will really make you think about life. I recommend this book highly.
