Présentation de l'éditeur

Lancaster County has always been her home--but where does her heart belong?

One moment Carrie Weaver was looking forward to running away with Lancaster Barnstormers pitcher Solomon Riehl--plans that included leaving the Amish community where they grew up. The next moment she was staring into a future as broken as her heart. Now, Carrie is faced with a choice. But will this opportunity be all she hoped? Or will this decision, this moment in time, change her life forever?

A tender story of love, forgiveness, and looking below the surface, The Choice uncovers the sweet simplicity of the Amish world--and shows that it's never too late to find your way back to God.

"Fisher's writing brings that Amish sense of peace into your own world. The Choice brings an entirely new perspective to the Amish way of life. You will love it!"--Kristin Billerbeck, author of What a Girl Wants

"A story of endearing characters. . . . Fisher writes with a fresh mix of humor and depth, splashing raw emotion onto the pages. I guarantee your heart will be touched."--Ginger Kolbaba, founding editor of Kyria.com, former editor of Today's Christian Woman, and author of Desperate Pastors' Wives

Suzanne Woods Fisher's interest in the Anabaptist culture can be directly traced to her grandfather, W. D. Benedict, who was raised in the Old Order German Baptist Brethren Church in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. Suzanne is the author of Amish Peace and lives with her family in California.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great read 1 février 2010
L'évaluation d'un enfant - Publié sur Amazon.com
I'm a guy, and guys probably aren't supposed to read Amish romance books - but oh well. If I did what everyone else thought I should do, or not do, I'd never have any fun. I have read a few in my lifetime. One of my favorite vacation spots, second only to The Outer Banks, is Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, so I do enjoy books that take place there, such as this one.

I haven't read a lot of Amish books of this type, but I do think it is one of the best I have read. Move aside, Beverly Lewis, you have some new competition!

There is a lot of Amish beliefs/traditions in the book, but through one of the characters, there is also shown grace, and a side of God the Amish don't normally see - and I am afraid some of us non-Amish never see - the God of love and grace. The book is a good story - very likable characters, and it has its low places and high, sad and happy - but among the great story is the message that we can know we are going to Heaven, and God does love us and want a relationship with us - not just a far off worship of fear.

This is Suzanne Woods Fisher's first novel, and I would say she hit one out of the ballpark with this one.

sooo Good!

lol I didn't think I'd enjoy it as much as I would. I've never read Amish fiction before, but Suzanne Woods Fisher made me fall in love with it! This incredible book just had my heart thumping and my eyes watering! So engaging, I couldn't put it down!

The story is basically this girl falls in love with a boy, but he decides to leave the group while he is on his rumspringa (their time when they get to experience the outside world if they want to before comitting to the church) and she ends up marrying someone else... it goes through love, forgiveness and about the choices we make that it's never too late to find ourselves with God... I even cried, and it takes a lot of me to cry in a book!

Whether your Amish or not this book has a lot to offer, the characters show depth and the emotions run raw in this book. I loved how much turmoil the main character when through and yet she learnt from it. So often we wonder why we go through things and we learn about forgiveness and God's real grace through it all.

It was sort of ironic that one of the books I just finished, Dug Down Deep by Joshua Harris started off with the discussion of rumspringa, so the bit I had been learning about the Amish fit in nicely to this book and gave it more flavor for me.

If I could give a story 6 cherries I would! She'll be on my top author's list!

I'm not a woman of God,but I was raised in Arthur Illinois. I lived with the Amish there, my grandmother taught them in a one room schoolhouse....

This is worth a read I couldn't put it down not for a moment it moved me and made me view my life a bit differently. This story will change you...let it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Choice 1 janvier 2010
Par Lollipops - Publié sur Amazon.com
THE CHOICE is the first book in Ms. Fisher's Lancaster County Secrets series. I couldn't help but fall in love with Carrie as she struggles to find herself among many sudden, shocking changes, but I think Carrie definitely came out ahead, learning to lean more and more on God as each event unfolds.

Some of the events in the first third of the book were quite unexpected and broke my heart. But while I would have liked to not have read about some of the events that transpired, the book ultimately had a happy ending, and I was sad that it ended. I thoroughly enjoyed reading THE CHOICE and am looking forward to Ms. Fisher's second book in the series, The Waiting, coming in October 2010.

Okay, I'm going to try my best to say exactly what I didn't like about this book without spoiling it too much.

***WARNING: Some plot points revealed below.***

(1) In the first 75 pages, three people (main characters) die. They all die abruptly, and the passages where Carrie finds out about their deaths are embarrassingly similar to one another. The deaths seemed like a very clumsy way for the author to dispose of characters once they had served their intended purpose in her story.

(2) Two main characters get injured and end up in the emergency room, and someone else just happens to be in that emergency room every time. The excessive use of the same plot points, and the convenient coincidences that occur for the sake of furthering the storyline don't make for great reading.

(3) Towards the end, we get yet another main character heading to the emergency room and dying pretty quickly.

After the third abrupt death in this book, I actually went online and started reading reviews that were labeled as having spoilers, just because I didn't quite believe that the author would really employ that same technique over and over again. But she did.

The thing is, in spite of all that, I really enjoyed the author's writing. She has this gentle, graceful tone that is soothing and pleasant to read. It reminded me of when I was a pre-teen, and my parents would buy me books from the Christian Books Distributors catalogue because they thought that was appropriate reading for a girl. In this way, it evoked a feeling of nostalgia in the best possible way.

I think this was her first novel, so I may try another one of her books to see if her ability to build a compelling plot improves any. But the bottom line is that her implausible, repetitive plot made the book a lot less fun to read.
