Teresa5 Stars Out Of 5Crossroads... a great story!October 9, 2014TeresaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I just finished reading Crossroads and loved it! The flow of the conversations seemed so natural. The development of the characters was balanced just right... enough detail to "know" them without getting bogged down. Can't wait to go back and read the first one in this series now, then the third one.

It touches your heart and the characters are believable with their flaws, their faith, the hurt they feel and the love they have for others. Emma has loved Isaac since they were children. Just when she thought they would be getting married Isaac starts acting like a stranger. He seems to be wanting to become English. When he asks Emma something she immediately breaks up with him. Does she follow her heart and leave the Amish to be with Isaac or lose Isaac and stay within her community, church and family. Isaac needs to grow up and decide what he truly wants. I enjoyed this book as I do all of Barbara Cameron's books. She always touches my heart with her writing, her faith and her understanding of human nature. If you enjoy reading about the Amish, human nature and romance then this book is for you. I won this book in a contest and loved it. No one asked me to leave a review but when I enjoy one this much I leave reviews. Hope this books blesses you as it did me.
