Product Description

Although proud of living apart from the world, Marianna Sommer's newly relocated Amish family is discovering that life in the remote mountains of Montana requires working together with the Englisch. As Marianna pours her life into helping those around her-and receiving their help-her heart further considers 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 close walk with God like she's never seen before.

Who should have young Marianna's heart? What is God asking of her through ongoing family struggles and this romantic and spiritual tension? The answer is found along the wooded paths.

Publisher's Description

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.

In the romantic novel, Along Wooded Paths, Tricia Goyer reminds her reader that God can be heard in unexpected places. The grey-eyed Amish girl, Marianna Sommer, isn't always confident she knows the LordÂ’s leading. Struggling to decide whom to marry, where to live, and how to express her faith, Marianna's story reminds us that while in their hearts humans plan their course, the LORD establishes their steps (Proverbs 16:9).


The author structures the narrative so the inner struggles of numerous characters are laid bare. Despite the reader's full awareness, the characters still manage to hide most of their affections and quandaries from each other, which helps to build tension throughout the story. In most romances, it is easy to favor the most suitable male and predict who the female will choose. Goyer's writing is distinctive, creating two respectable, godly male suitors. This technique created a more enticing story and built to a surprise ending.


These two male suitors are the primary cause of Marianna's unrest. She is torn between an acceptable Amish life with Aaron Zook in Indiana or a life with a guitar-strumming man named Ben Stone in Montana. However, the plot doesn't only center on romantic notions. Marianna works in a local restaurant in Montana where she interacts with her English neighbors. These relationships influence Marianna and cause her to renew her faith and reevaluate Amish traditions. Marianna's emotional pains about looming decisions and proper expressions of faith are soothed with prayers for direction. The reader will chuckle at her constant nerves and grow frustrated with her inability to decide which man she loves. However, her genuine desire to please God and her family is endearing and saves her from ridicule.

Along Wooded Paths is a character-based novel. Those looking for a simple love story that is centered on the desire to please God will enjoy this book. - Tamara Peachy, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    Marianna Sommer is still in Montana helping her family, at least that's what she says. She is really trying to figure out where she belongs, in Indiana with Aaron Zook or in Montana with Ben. Ben, an Englischer, has led her to believe differently about God but she still plans to stay Amish. Things get even more complicated when Aaron shows up in Montana unexpectedly. Marianna finds out by hearing than an Amish man was in an accident and is hurt in the hospital, his name is Aaron Zook and he's from Indianna.

    Marianna's dad gets him out of the hospital and Aaron is now staying with them, his leg is in a cast and he won't be able to walk for several weeks, and taking her bedroom. Now she has both of the men she thinks she loves in the same town and finds her heart changing daily, if not more often.

    Who will Marianna end up with? She feels like she really does love Ben but unless he becomes Amish it will be impossible to marry him. Then there's the days she feels that connection with Aaron that can't be broken and she's known him her whole life and has always planned on marrying him.

    Tricia did a really good job keeping me in suspense on this one, and I have a feeling with the book ending as it did that things may change in the third book, "Beyond Hope's Valley". Way to leave us hanging! Anyone that likes Amish Fiction should read this series, I think you would really enjoy it.

    Amish usually have strict guidelines, but with this story, Marianna is exposed to a free-er side of a new order Amish in a different geography & culture. Because of the area & climate

    life has to change and the Amish need to rely on GOD and their neighbors.

    This review was written for Along Wooded Paths: A Big Sky Novel - eBook.
    I love the convenience of reading books on my i-pad and Christian Books.com has a great selection. One issue is e-book pages with one sentence or a few words, on my i-pad, are difficult to read as they do not become focused. When a page is to turn to a one sentence (or a few words) page the page is automatically skipped going to the next full-worded page.

    I am actually glad I waited for awhile to read this series. Wanna know why? Because then the rest of the series had already been released and I didn't have to wait for months to find out how Marianna's story would go.

    From the description of the wonders of Montana to the tiny little details of Aaron's cabin, Ms. Goyer has a knack for painting a masterpiece with the brush of her written words.

    This book takes the wonderful Amish theme, picks it up, and sets it down in a great new place filled with all sorts of colorful characters and a love story that will capture your heart.

    If you enjoy Amish themed stories, this one is not to be missed.

    Blending faith, suspense, and romance, book two in the Lancaster County series is a book you will not be able to put down until your read the last word on the final page. Along Wooded Paths poignantly reminds its readers that though they may stray from their heavenly Father, if they are truly His child they are never out of His reach. I look forward to book three with great anticipation.
