ALONG WOODED PATHS
The second book in the Big Sky series continues the story of the Sommer family. The characters are living more intertwined with the Englisch than they did before and face challenges to their Amish beliefs. Goyer gives the reader a glimpse inside a way of life very few outsiders get the chance to experience.
Marianna Sommer and her family are learning they have no choice but to work alongside their neighbors, the Englisch in the community. She finds her heart torn between Aaron Zook, the young man she was planning to marry in Indiana, and Ben, who hasn’t decided whether he wants to become Amish or not. After Aaron arrives and is in an accident, he stays with Marianna and her family and the tension builds between them. (B&H, Oct., 320 pp. $14.99)
