I found The Choice to be an enjoyable story. In her book, Mrs. Fischer offers us romance, human characters, and forks in the road that take us by surprise.Although The Choice is Christian fiction, it is not at all preachy or stuffy. Instead, Christianity is simply part of the everyday lives of the characters. I was particularly pleased with how clearly Mrs. Fischer presented the message that contrary to Amish belief, we can have a loving, personal relationship with God, knowing for certain that our sins have been forgiven and that we have a home in Heaven with our Lord.I definitely recommend reading The Choice. It's better than much of the other bonnet fiction.
This is a very good story. I love reading Amish christian fiction. I know the author has to know a lot about the ways of the Amish people to write a wonderful story such as this. Keep up the good work.
Oh my word! I LOVED this book! I thought things would be slower paced and simpler with it being a book about the Amish; however, this book is power packed from the word go. Romance, suspense, intrigue and the consequences of choices made filled the pages from beginning to end. There are twists and turns in this book that will literally make your head spin! I like the way Suzanne infuses the Amish language into the book and then tells us what it means in the next breath. It made it easier to stay in the story rather than reading the word and looking it up in a glossary of definitions. Suzanne has fabulous characters, intense plots and imagery so vivid you think you are in Lancaster County. Cant wait for book two in the Lancaster County Secrets series!
I started reading this book the day it came in the mail and finished it within 2 days! That is testament to how good this book is.Carrie Weaver deals with tragedy over and over in this book but keeps her head high. She struggles with the decision to leave her home; the only home she has ever known and going with the man she loves. Should she stay in her Amish home or go to live with the English? Does she settle for less than what she wants, only for the sake of her family? Can she love anyone as much as she loves Solomon Riehl?These are all questions Carrie must face in this story. It is a very quick read that, while teaching you much about the Amish way of life, still peaks and keeps your interest so you cant put the book down. I felt like I personally knew the characters in The Choice and cared about what happened to them all. I was able to imagine what life in an Amish home was like thanks to the great writing of Suzanne. This book has a bit of mystery, romance, and drama. You will want to cry for the characters at one moment and then turn around and cheer for them. I can't wait for the second book to be released.
Carrie Weaver was looking forward to running away with Solomon Riehl, a pitcher for the Lancaster Barnstormers, this meant that they would have to leave their Amish community where they grew up. Carrie had to make a choice, would she make the right choice? And would the choice she makes change her life forever? I found The Choice to be a very quick read and really hard to put down. The writing flowed easily as a feather floating down a stream. It is a beautifully written inspirational story of God, faith, love, thankfulness. The changes that Carrie went through were "real life" changes that some people go through in todays world. It was interesting that though Carrie had more than her share of devastation, she got through it all with her unending belief in God, her faith that would not be shaken, and her incredible strength through it all. The valuable lessons she learned through her experiences helped her grow during her life. The Choice is a must read for today's world. Seems we could all use more simplicity in our lives today.
