Review and Blog Tour for The Choice by Suzanne Woods Fisher

Title: The Choice
Author: Suzanne Woods Fisher
Publisher: Revell (January 10, 2010)
Paperback: 320 pages
ISBN: 978-0-8007-3385-8

Description from the publisher :
Lancaster County has always been her home--but where does her heart belong?
One moment Carrie Weaver was looking forward to running away with Lancaster Barnstormers pitcher Solomon Riehl--plans that included leaving the Amish community where they grew up. The next moment she was staring into a future as broken as her heart. Now, Carrie is faced with a choice. But will this opportunity be all she hoped? Or will this decision, this moment in time, change her life forever?
A tender story of love, forgiveness, and looking below the surface, The Choice uncovers the sweet simplicity of the Amish world--and shows that it's never too late to find your way back to God.

About the author:

Suzanne Woods Fisher, unlike the Amish she writes about, is very much "online." She 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 her mother's side are Old Order German Baptist Brethren, also known as Dunkards. That's where her interest in Anabaptist traditions began. Her grandfather, a former teacher in a one-room school in Franklin County, Pennsylvania, and a publisher of Christianity Today, inspired Ms. Fisher to write.

Nice review!

I also enjoyed “The Choice” and look forward to reading Suzanne Woods Fisher’s next novel.

I thought the plot was great – robust and satisfying – like a flavourful wine. There were twists and turns that I didn’t see coming. There were love triangles, wise old grandmas, wise elders who gave loving counsel, caring sisters, jail birds, guarded secrets, mystery, and sweet, sweet romance. The chemistry between the two main characters was very believable and I enjoyed it immensely.

I wrote a more in-depth review on my own web-site www.tracysbooknook.com

Oops!

When I said a “more in-depth review” I meant more in-depth compared to the short comment I had made.

Sorry if that was unclear.
