Although the basic storyline is inviting, and some of the elements of the story add a fresh touch, different from much of the Amish fiction I've read, this book fell a little flat for me. The story seemed a little choppy, and the characters did not really come alive. It was fun to run into some "old friends" -- Jenny and Matthew -- from an earlier series written by Barbara. Fans of Amish fiction will surely find enjoyment in this story, even though I didn't consider it to be Barbara's best.

About the book: Book 1 in the new Amish Roads series
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?
