From the Back Cover: 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.
Marianna Sommer is a Amish girl who has left her childhood home in Indiana and Aaron Zook, the man she is pledged to marry, to move to the wilds of Montana where the Amish and the Englischers live and work together in close community. There she meets Ben, an Englischer, who teaches her that it is possible to have a personal relationship with God. As the romance builds between Marianna and Ben Aaron arrives to take her back to Indiana. ”Along Wooded Paths” is all about community and people getting along with each other despite religious differences. This is the way God wants for His people that we just see each other as family. Ms. Goyer brings this theme out so clearly in the book and we enjoy every moment of these character’s lives. “Along Wooded Paths” is all about families and relationships and that is what makes this book a winner. I enjoyed this book a lot and am looking forward to the next one.
