Product Description

With a vibrant, fresh style Suzanne Woods Fisher brings readers into the world of a young Amish woman torn between following the man she loves--or joining the community of faith that sustains her, even as she questions some of the decisions of her elders.

Combined with Fisher's exceptional gift for character development, this novel, the first in a series, is a welcome reminder that it is never too late to find your way back to God.

That's not the case in Suzanne Woods Fisher's "The Choice," an edgier Amish romance with more complicated characters, conflicting values and even an unfolding mystery. Unlike the novellas, Book I of the Lancaster County Secrets series does not fully affirm Amish brand faith. Carrie has plans to run off with Solomon, who secretly signed a contract with the Lancaster Barnstormers. Then her father dies, and decides to stay and protect her young brother from their cruel stepmother. She marries another both to escape the household and to spite Sol. Soon she's a widow fighting to maintain a farm while attracting attention from the bishop's simple-minded son, the ex-con cousin of her dead husband who offers her a different take on God, and the regretful ballplayer. This book avoids stereotyping the Amish, but it caricatures its two non-Amish characters. Both are obnoxious; one is also criminal. In the end, the score is Amish, 2; English, 1.

RT Book Reviews

Fisher kicks off a refreshing new series, Lancaster County Secrets, with characters that are strong, both in body and spirit. They also have weaknesses that develop into strengths with the choices they make.

Publisher's Weekly

The newest entry to the growing ranks of “bonnet fiction” writers is Fisher, who has written Amish nonfiction (Amish Peace). This Lancaster County tale centers on Carrie Weaver, who marries an Amish man for convenience though her heart is committed to another. Carrie struggles to care for her hemophiliac younger brother as she lives with the consequences of her own choices. The outline is promising, but the execution flawed. An intriguing heroine shows the author's potential, but major problems compromise the book's overall merit. The plot creaks too loudly; a few too many characters die to complicate the action, and the character who poses the biggest threat is more a caricature than credible villain. Minor characters—an oversized lovable ex-con, a harpy stepmother—likewise mostly serve plot rather than populate a convincingly drawn world. The language can get adjective-laden and trite (“The air had grown thick and heavy”). Bonnet fiction devotees might be able to overlook some problems, but this is not a strong new offering in the subgenre. (Jan.)Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

    Suzanne Fisher's book, The Choice, is appropriately named. The entire book is about making choices, whether they are good choices or bad choices. The author has woven together a wonderful story that reminds us, while we may make our own plans and choices, God is working and will have his will for our lives regardless.

    I really liked the character of Carrie Weaver. She was able to step up and make the right choice even though it was a hard thing to do. And because of that God honored her decision He eventually brought a godly man into her life that truly loved her.

    Both Sol Reihl and Abel Miller also had choices. One was selfish, the other made out of love. To me these to represented humanity. There are times we make choices and tell ourselves that we are making them in everyone's best interest, but in truth, sometimes it is only in our best interest. Other times, we will make choices in which we must make great sacrifices and we do so out of love.

    While the overall story lacked a smooth flow and some continuity the analogies that we brought up, were outstanding.

    The biggest problem I had with this book was the amount of death within the span of a year. I understand that death is part of life and we all have to cope with it, but it seemed that every time I turned a page someone else died. It darkened the book considerably. Because of this aspect I can only give this book 3 stars.

    This was a well written story - a little different than most of the Amish books I've read. Lots of surprises throughout and quite a variety of characters. I would certainly recommend this book.

    This review was written for The Choice, Lancaster County Secrets Series #1.
    This is one of the best Amish Fiction books I have read. Most of them are sweet stories, but pretty predictable. Not so this book! It keeps you wondering and never offers the "expected" outcome. I have Old Order Amish friends, and most of the Amish books I have read are rather far fetched and unbelievable, and so many aspects of true Amish life are misrepresented. However, Suzanne seems to have a true grasp of Amish life - as much as they allow us to have anyway, as they are a very private people.

    The choice that the main character, Carrie, makes at the beginning of the story bring unexpected consequences not only for herself, but others in her life. There will be many surprises in store for you when you read this book. There is a wonderful romantic flow throughout, and the characters become very real as you read about them.

    I really enjoyed this book very much. I am very pleased with how things ended except as pertain to the character named Emma. I do not want to spoil the story for you, so I will not tell you what she did, but I will say this. Learning the character and mind set of this woman, I doubt she would have made the choice she made. But it did serve as one more unexpected turn this book made. I am looking forward to the next two volumes.

    I recommend this for adult or young adult readers. I was smiling as I closed the pages.

    Enjoy reading books about Amish way of life. Suzanne Fisher 's writing is right up there with Beverly Lewis & Wanda Brunstetter. Can't put her books down until finished.

    There are three books in this series and they are well written and heartwarming to read. The writer does an excellent job of getting to the point of the story and how she weaves people in and out of the book. I would recommend this series to anyone to read.
