I was sent a copy of A Road Unknown in exchange for my review. All opinions listed are 100% my own.
I love reading stories that resonate with me — that make me think about things from my past. In this new Amish series from Barbara Cameron, that is exactly what I felt. As I met Elizabeth and was reading her story, I almost felt like myself. I remember all so well as a teen just wanting to get away from my family and start a different life of some kind.
I love Elizabeth’s character. She seems scared, yet confident enough in herself to not give up and to keep moving forward. The one character in the story that I did not like was her grandmother. She seems rigid and just not very nice at all.
But then we meet the adorable Saul. Saul’s character seems like he’s the perfect gentlemen. He’s funny, witty, adorable, and he obviously cares for Elizabeth.
This book is a great light hearted read. I cannot wait to check out the others in the series.
Have you ever read any of Barbara’s books?

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?
