In A Road Unknown, by Barbara Cameron, Elizabeth Bontrager is looking for her own happiness after having helped her mother and father with her younger siblings for most of her life.
She is currently living in Goshen, Indiana, but she is planning on moving to Paradise, Pennsylvania to live with her English friend, Paula. She has fun living with Paula, but two men interrupt her fun and peace. One of them is English and the other is Amish and is also her new boss.
What will Elizabeth do with her new life, stay in Paradise or go home to Goshen?
My Thoughts- I have read all of the books in the Quilts of Lancaster series, by Barbara Cameron and enjoyed them very much. A Road Unknown, the first book in the Amish Roads series was excellent as well.
While I really enjoy learning about Elizabeth Bontrager and her new life in Paradise, well named I thought, since she does find her own piece of paradise, I especially liked the back of the book that had recipes, glossary of Amish words, study guide, description of this series and a excerpt from the next book. This information made me hungry, was very helpful for me to understand the words I did not know, and to think about and understand the message Cameron was writing. I cannot wait to try some of the recipes.
It was very interesting to read a book where an Amish person lived with the English. I thought it would be frowned upon, but if she is in her Rumschpringe, then I guess it would be o.k. It was good that Saul and his family did not object to it. Paula, who was English, was a very nice person and I am glad she was the one that Elizabeth stayed with.
This is a very good book. I hope you enjoy it as well.
