review: The Choice by Suzanne Woods Fisher

this book surprised me. to be perfectly honest, the only other book about the amish i had read was less than exciting, but The Choice was a totally different experience. factoring the time necessary to sleep and go to work, i read this book basically in one day.

carrie weaver had her life all figured out. in just a few days she was leaving the amish community where she grew up with the love of her life, and the two of them were going to begin an exciting new life together. but then, the unthinkable happens, and carrie is faced with not only tragedy and heartbreak, but is left with a young brother in her care.

suzanne woods fisher weaves together a story of forgiveness, hope and life-saving community in the face of life's harshness and uncertainty.

while this isn't a book i would normally have picked up, i am grateful that i read it, and wholeheartedly enjoyed it.

available january 2010 at your favorite bookseller.
