Many times, when we make decisions, we don't always consider the consequences of our choicesnot only for ourselves but for many others as well. The Choice considers these consequences in a wonderful story of God's leading and provision when all seemed lost. Carrie has to make difficult decisions at the spur of the moment. And it seems that her own wishes and dreams will not be made real. Yet she begins to see how God's plans are always best, even when we don't understand what He's doing to accomplish those plans. An excellent story that brings to life a people and a way of life that is foreign to most of us. I loved the characters and the simple way of life portrayed while being challenged to consider my choices in life in light of God's plans for me.
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.
