Barbara Cameron in her new book, “A Road Unknown book coverA Road Unknown” Book One in the Amish Road series published by Abingdon Press takes us into the life of Elizabeth Bontrager.

From the back cover:  Elizabeth is at a crossroads.

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?

What would you do?  If you lived in the land of Goshen, or plenty, all your life then had the opportunity to go live in Paradise would you go home to Goshen where your parents were or stay in Paradise where your friends and new life are?  That is the problem that Elizabeth is facing.  And she is meeting all kinds of adventures in her new life especially with two men who want a romance with her.  I think we have all faced a situation where we don’t know which way to go, back to the life we lived or ahead to the new life we are trying to make.  Ms. Cameron, in Elizabeth, has given us a character that as she grows and comes to understand just what she is doing and why we can identify with and root for to make the right decisions.  All of the characters are interesting and we come to care for all of them.  You wish they really existed outside of these pages so that we could go over to their homes and visit.  This book is just a lot of fun and I look forward to the next book in this series.
