    3 A Road Unknown Stars - ❤ Audible Review HERE ❤This is not my normal category to say the least, I didn’t hate it but I didn’t love it either. The story line was really quiet good but it was a little long and a little dull for me. If you break it down not much really happens but you do see the relationship between Saul and Elizabeth grow and those parts were interesting. I liked getting to see Elizabeth grow up and put herself forward first and stand up for herself. Right from the beginn [...]

    The bus trip to Paradise, Pennsylvania was long and terrifying to Elizabeth Bontrager who questioned her decision to run away from her large family. She was weary of her life as the eldest of eight siblings always “needed” by her mamm to care for them. Work, work, work, with no promise of a life of her own in Goshen, Indiana. She was uncomfortable with the strangers on the bus, especially the Englischers until a young Amish man Saul Miller comes to her rescue and soothes her fears, especiall [...]

    This book grabs you from the very beginning. You’re wondering why Elizabeth is leaving her family. How does she know the Englisch friend she is going to live with? These questions do get answered but more and more get uncovered. I tore through this book and enjoyed it greatly.It’s interesting to read about how Saul and his family have created a good living with their gift shop. At one point, Elizabeth examines the goods for sale from local Amish people and thinks about how many of the items [...]

    I enjoyed going with Elizabeth on her journey. She basically jumped on a bus after some quick good-byes to family, and ventured into the unknown to start living her own life. She meets Saul in a sweet way, and they slowly build a friendship as a foundation for something more. Paula is one of my favorite characters- what a loyal and supportive friend through all of the transition Elizabeth goes through. The message that God watches over each of us was inspirational.(Thank you to Abingdon Press fo [...]

    I always enjoy reading the stories that reflect some of the Amish way of life - and this one was no different. I really enjoyed the storyline and the characters and couldn't wait to find out how it ended. I would recommend to those who enjoy a light-hearted Amish romance.

    This was a good break book. To me the plot lacked something and I can’t put my finger on what. The characters could be more developed. I don’t know the probably of an Amish girl rooming with an English girl in a modern apartment?

    Linda
    I hope Elizabeth's parents know why she left home and don't make their other children feel the same way. She missed her childhood and became their maid. I am glad she found true love.

    If she ever wants a future, she will have to return home to resolve the issues from her past. Elizabeth Bontrager had run away from home even though she was twenty-years-old. She needed a break from being the oldest of nine children and having all the responsibility of helping to care for her brothers and sister was simply more than could handle. It was rapidly changing her outlook on what marriage and having her own family should look like, and now it was the furthest thing from her mind. Even [...]

    WOW! Barbara is such a wonderful author.I haven’t actually read any of her other Amish novels but after reading this one, I will be!I have read a story or two of hers from collaborations and they were wonderful but they could not have prepared me for what unfolded in “A Road Unknown”.So few authors are able to capture the essence of something that is totally or even mostly foreign to them but Barbara Cameron does it beautifully.At least, I hope so… I would hate to think that Barbara hers [...]

    Elizabeth doesn't just take an unknown road in this book, but a most unique one, as well! Forget trying to decide if she's going to be Amish or English - she's going to live Amish but in an English house and work in an Amish business and date both Amish and English! While it might sound confusing, it really wasn't - but the reader definitely hops between both worlds.Yet it was really a fun read. Elizabeth doesn't spend as much time mentally trying to figure out her life spiritually or philosophi [...]

    How many of us have felt weighed down by responsibilities of the home as young people? We may want our own home some day but not as a teen. We may want to run around and have fun like the Englisch friends we see, if we are an Amish teen who is expected to care for many younger siblings as well as household duties. Elizabeth feels this way and just can't take it anymore. She feels God leading her to leave Indiana and move to Paradise to stay with her Englisch friend, Paula. She hops on a bus and [...]

    I was so excited to see this new book by Barbara Cameron, my favorite author of Amish fiction, and even more thrilled to find that I would be returning to Paradise in this novel! Miss Cameron always writes with heart, warmth, and values, and this story was no different. This story grabbed me from the first page, watching a young woman who had missed out on the life that most people take for granted in order to help her mother with her siblings, break out on her own in order to discover her true [...]

    I know I know another Amish fiction review but I couldn't help it. I loved this story from beginning to end.Elizabeth is struggling, she has a decision to make. The book starts with Elizabeth on a bus making a drastic change in her life. We all come to a time in our life when we have to make a decision, stay where we feel comfortable or reach out into the unknown. Elizabeth has a unique opportunity she has the chance to live in both worlds for a time. While leaving her hometown she meets a good [...]

    "A Road Unknown"is the first book in Barbara Cameron's Amish Road Series. There are some characters from her series"A Stitch In Time". I really liked this book and especially liked these two quotes from the book"Supper's not just about eating. It's also about enjoying family and making memories." and" Sometimes when we let go and stop trying to tell Him what's best for us we find it, eh?" I just felt there was so much truth in those two statements.Elizabeth Bontrager is tired of not being able t [...]

    My Thoughts On The Book: This was my first book by Barbara Cameron so I had no clue what to expect. I found the basic storyline quite inviting and there was a fresh and different look at traditional Amish fiction I've read in the past. The story moved along at a good pace and the characters were very intereting. I loved the theme of following God's plan for your life. All in all this novel should appeal to all fans of Amish fiction. They will surely find enjoyment in this story. I cannot wait to [...]

    A Road Unknown is book one in the Amish Roads Series. I thought the idea behind this story--a young Amish girl running away from home because she’s overwhelmed at all her responsibilities--was interesting. I also liked how the book contained more of a mix of the Englisch and Amish lifestyles than most Amish stories do. That aspect made this novel unique from others. The main characters were pretty interesting, and I especially liked Saul, the book’s hero. The story plot has tons of great pot [...]

    This was actually the first book I read by Barbara Cameron! Once I did, I was immediately hooked and we hurriedly purchased many of her other books. We didn’t realize until we began reading them that the three series we purchased were all connected, not only the characters but the communities as well.I really identified with Elizabeth, being expected to do all the chores that no one else wanted to do. I’m not sure how realistic the story is of her parents not allowing her to date or go to th [...]

    I really love Amish fiction. Elizabeth has been given a chance to leave her home, responsibilities and start a new life adventure. Paradise is her destination. She will live in an English world while being Amish. Two men take an interest in her (one Amish, one English). As the time passes, Elizabeth realizes she misses her home but she does like her new life. I really liked Elizabeth. She was on such an exciting adventure and to go from living Amish to living with English conveniences had to be [...]

    I really enjoyed this story about an Amish girl trying to figure out her place in the world. I liked the characters and their relationships with each other. I love getting the guy's and girl's perspectives and what they're thinking. Sometimes it felt like Elizabeth didn't think things through that well and I thought the relationship progressed too quickly. It was fun to see some of the characters in Cameron's previous books pop up. I really liked the message about God having a plan and that He w [...]

    This book kept my interest the whole way through. It is a very fast read. It was well written and flowed really well. I really connected with Elizabeth. I felt that her family was wrong to expect her to give up her wants and dreams to help with her younger siblings. She has a lot of decisions to make and some people think she makes the wrong ones, but she is a strong character. This book was filled with other great characters and I can't wait to find out what happens next in this series. I highl [...]

    I love reading Amish Fiction and this fit the bill. I feel as if I am right there with Elizabeth going through the same things. The author really paints the picture with this novel. I of course got caught up in reading this that I could not sleep! I had to finish the entire book. I would LOVE nothing more than to write out the entire plot for ya, but then you wouldn’t need to buy your own copy! I give this book 5/5 stars. I LOVED it!

    This is part of the Amish Roads Series-Book 1 and was sent to me as an advance reader copy.I enjoyed the authors style and felt there was more of a story line than I have found in other books about the Amish. Ms Cameron showed that the Amish have the same problems as the rest of the world but may handle them different. While family values are important, they are not always easy or straight forward.

    Patricia Hullet
    This was a book that I won from Good Reads and I'm very grateful to have won it. It was an OK book, but I was disappointed with the ending. The friendship between the main Amish character, Elizabeth and her Englisch friend, Paula was endearing and I also loved Saul. It could have been so much better if the writer would have gone into more detail regarding Elizabeth's parents and also that is where it seemed to be rushed in the end of the book. All in all I did enjoy it.

    Margaret Tidwell
    I read this book in a few days because I had to know what happened and how things turned out for Elizabeth. This is the first book I have read by this author and I can't wait to read more and to also read the next book in this series. I have to say that I was so glad that she didn't end up with Bruce because from the moment the introduced him I really couldn't stand him. I love how this book turned out and I can't wait to read the next one.

    Sweet & SpiritedA well written love story. There are twists, turns and honest emotions in this fast paced book. And don’t think you have the book figured out – until the end! The characters come alive and you feel like you a part of the town. A Road Unknown is the first in the Amish Roads series – I am eager to read the second book. Enjoy! NetGalley and Abingdon Press provided an advanced review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    ght of how they will effect our siblings.Together with Elizabeth, we can experience the frustration and joys of living away from a close knit family unit.Barbara writes a delightful page turner and I learned a lot about myself, and some about others. There is no problem unique to myself! I revieved this book free from Amy Lathrop at Litfuse Publicity Group and Abingdon Press in exchange for an honest review. A positive critique was not required. The opinions are my own.

    Elizabeth Bontrager is the oldest child and is like a second mamm to her 8 siblings . She loves her family but her mom has trouble managing the family and Elizabeth has had the lions share of work to do even with working outside the home to provide housheold income. Although she wants to honor and respect her parents , Elizabeth decides to leave and go stay with an English friend in Paradise, Pennsylvania to find God' s will for her life. Heartwarming story.

    Nat Kidder
    Delightful story of an overworked, undercourted Amish 20-year-old maiden who leaves one Plain community to room near another, with an Englische nursing student. One male character is overly caricatured, but who cares? Fast paced, with some light fish-out-of-water humor; you don't have to love the Amish to love this tale.
