    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 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.
