The Third Book in Barbara Cameron's "Amish Roads Series"

"One True Path"
By Barbara Cameron

One offer that I NEVER refuse, is to review a book in the Amish Fiction genre. Excitement reigns in this household, especially when it is requested by the author herself! I have read every book by Barbara Cameron and have never been disappointed. Each one is unique and keeps me intrigued from the first page. "One True Path" is no exception to this!  As I have read the first two book in this series, I eagerly delved into this new one, wondering what adventures I would encounter.


 Amish marriages are forever. Abram Lapp believes he could love his neighbor forever, but Rachel Ann is enjoying her Rumschpringe, exploring Englisch life with a very Englisch boy named Michael. As Abram watches Rachel Ann stray from the life he had hoped for them, he regrets not telling her that his feelings for her have deepened.

Rachel Ann loves the freedom she has away from the familiar Amish rules and responsibilities. But when tragedy strikes and her brother is critically wounded in an accident, she begins to feel a pull toward home. She struggles with guilt and throws herself into working two jobs to help with hospital expenses. Leaning on Michael for support, she realizes he might not be the man she needs…or wants. Could the husband she has hoped for be waiting right next door?

Barbara Cameron's has a special talent of describing her characters realistically and in such detail that you can easily identify with them. Rachel Ann became one of my friends, one to whom I wanted to give advice and a big hug every time she encountered a challenge or problem and this seemed to be a LOT of the time. Her confusion about many important life decisions were felt deep within me. Can Rachel Ann leave a faith that she has been born into and raised to follow? She enjoys freedom in the new Englischer life that she has been taking part in, but is this enjoyment going to last?? Will a new love last or is it just the feeling of the moment, that will die away? 

The plot moves at a quick pace which keeps you glued to your seat until you have reached the last page. There are many twists and turns that complicate the situations that occur. Just when you think you have figured out all the answers, there is another surprise lurking around the corner. 

I would highly recommend this book! It is a winner!! Barbara Cameron has once again succeeded in writing an Amish novel that is unique and not quite the norm. That is exactly what keeps me reading her creations!! I can hardly wait to see what she comes up with next!!

The ebook was provided by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.
