Product description

From the Inside Flap

EXCERPT FROM CATALOG "Did anyone ask where you were this afternoon?" Sol asked her. "No," Carrie answered, still smiling. "Dad and Eli were so excited about purchasing the orchards that it was all anyone was talking about." "Surprised me to see Andy with you. Think that was wise?" "Aw, it was a birthday present for him. He won't tell." Carrie was quiet for a moment. "I won't be here for his actual birthday." Her heart caught for a moment. Sol didn't seem to notice the quiver in her voice. "So we'll tell our folks Sunday afternoon, just like we talked about. On Monday, I'll be on the team bus to Long Island, but you can follow on a Greyhound as soon as you can. I thought we could get married in New York, the day you arrive. How does that sound?" Carrie didn't answer right away. She glanced back at the big white farmhouse. The moonlight shone behind it, casting a bluish hue over it. The night was so quiet and peaceful, the barn and the house filled with sleeping people and animals. An owl hooted once, then twice. Then her eyes caught on a shadowy figure and she gasped. Daniel Miller was sitting on the fence across from the phone shanty, watching her.

From the Back Cover

Lancaster County has always been her home--but where does her heart belong?

One moment Carrie Weaver was looking forward to running away with Lancaster Barnstormers pitcher Solomon Riehl--plans that included leaving the Amish community where they grew up. The next moment she was staring into a future as broken as her heart. Now, Carrie is faced with a choice. But will this opportunity be all she hoped? Or will this decision, this moment in time, change her life forever?

A tender story of love, forgiveness, and looking below the surface, The Choice uncovers the sweet simplicity of the Amish world--and shows that it's never too late to find your way back to God.

"Fisher's writing brings that Amish sense of peace into your own world. The Choice brings an entirely new perspective to the Amish way of life. You will love it!"--Kristin Billerbeck, author of What a Girl Wants

"A story of endearing characters. . . . Fisher writes with a fresh mix of humor and depth, splashing raw emotion onto the pages. I guarantee your heart will be touched."--Ginger Kolbaba, founding editor of Kyria.com, former editor of Today's Christian Woman, and author of Desperate Pastors' Wives

Suzanne Woods Fisher's interest in the Anabaptist culture can be directly traced to her grandfather, W. D. Benedict, who was raised in the Old Order German Baptist Brethren Church in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. Suzanne is the author of Amish Peace and lives with her family in California.

There were more problems in this than the usual among the Amish in other books. More contact with the "English" and such things as struggling to pay taxes, & for those that left ,their struggles outside the community. The difficulty in returning too, was also well described. Somehow it made their choice to stay a lot less cut & dried than previously. Other forms of Christianity, land developers, arson, accidents, hereditary illness, widowhood, & many trials & joys to were also included. Most of the characters seemed realistic & the gentle plain life nowhere near as easy as often pictured. Thoroughly enjoyable. Looking out for book 2.

At the heart of this story is Carrie a young amish girl, planning to run away with Sol a young Amish man, who wants to play baseball. But, then her Father dies and Carrie cannot leave her young brother with her stepmother. Sol refuses to take Andy as well, so reluctantly she let's him leave alone. Her late Father had always wanted her to marry Daniel a young man that she does not know well, although Carrie does not love Daniel, she marries him for her brothers sake.
The book takes us through many life changing events for Carrie, and we get to see her grow as a person, learning what she really wants from life. By the end of the story Carrie full circle and is where she needs to be.
I really liked this book the story was well told, the characters were well developed, I felt the author found the right balance between the things happening to the characters in the book, the Amish way of life and their religious beliefs. A job well done.

Ever since watching Witness starring Harrison Ford I have always found the Amish way of life interesting and have read a few books set around Amish life.

This was a good one although unfortunately for me I read the reviews beforehand and one review was full of spoilers so that ruined the story a little for me.

The other books in the series look just as interesting. Never read this author before but enjoyed her writing style. Good free read.

I love Amish stories. Carrie had so much heartache to a deal with but with the love of God she got through. Glad she found love in the end. Could not put this book down.
