The Choice by Suzanne Woods Fisher


One moment, Carrie Weaver is planning to elope with Lancaster Barnstormer Solomon Riehl, leaving their Amish community behind. The next, she is staring into a future as broken as her heart. Now Carrie faces a choice. An opportunity. But will this decision, this moment in time, change her life forever? “Fisher kicks off a refreshing new series, Lancaster County Secrets, with characters that are strong, both in body and spirit. They also have weaknesses that develop into strengths with the choices they make.”
4 stars, Romantic Times


Suzanne is a wife and mom, raiser of puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind, and an author of Christian books, both non-fiction and fiction.

Her relatives on my mother’s side are Old Order German Baptist Brethren, also known as Dunkards. That’s where her interest in Anabaptist traditions began. Suzanne’s grandfather was born into a family of 13 children, started his career as a teacher in a one-room school house in Franklin County, Pennsylvania, and ended it as one of the very first publishers of Christianity Today. “We called him “Deardad” even though he was a very stern fellow. Still, Deardad’s life inspired me to write.”

After college, Suzanne was a freelance writer for magazines and became a contributing editor to Christian Parenting Today. Her work has been featured in Today’s Christian Woman, Marriage Partnership, Worldwide Challenge, among others. She took the plunge into books a few years ago and now she’s hooked.

My Thoughts…

This is the first book I’ve read from author Suzanne Woods Fisher and it certainly won’t be my last. I enjoy how Suzanne writes, as her writing style was easy to read and the captivating story kept it hard to put down. I read The Choice in a day in a half and am so sad that the story is over. I’m really look forward to more books in the Lancaster County Secrets Series!

The Choice is a tale full of moral values, family, faith, and tragedy. I was quite intrigued learning about the Amish ways as I’ve always been very interested in their culture. At times, I wish life was more simple as keeping up with all the hustle and bustle in our current society can be overwhelming and very stressful.  I long at times for the sense of family and friendship that the Amish community values so true, if only people would stop focusing on self and more on others. Though I know the Amish is a tight knit community and they don’t think too much of those on the outside, I think I long for it to be like Christ intended much like the character Abel in this story. I guarantee reading this book will definitely put some new thoughts into your head and shine light on new to you revelation. I loved it and I sure others will too.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars!
