Book Tour Review of The Choice


     Carrie Weaver was looking forward to running away with Solomon Riehl, a pitcher for the Lancaster Barnstormers, this meant that they would have to leave their Amish community where they grew up. Carrie had to make a choice, would she make the right choice? And would the choice she makes change her life forever? Download an excerpt here.

About the Author

     Suzanne Woods Fisher's interest in the Anabaptist cultures can be directly traced to her grandfather, who was raised in the Old Order German Baptist Brethren Church in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. She is the author of Amish Peace: Simple Wisdom for a Complicated World. Her work has been published in several magazines, such as Today's Christian Woman, Christian Parenting Today, ParentLife and many others. Suzanne Fisher lives with her family in the San Francisco Bay Area. I encourage you to visit her website at

My Review

      I found The Choice to be a very quick read and really hard to put down. The writing flowed easily as a feather floating down a stream. It is a beautifully written inspirational story of God, faith, love, thankfulness.
     The changes that Carrie went through were "real life" changes that some people go through in todays world. It was interesting that though Carrie had more than her share of devastation, she got through it all with her unending belief in God, her faith that would not be shaken, and her incredible strength through it all. The valuable lessons she learned through her experiences helped her grow during her life. The Choice is a must read for today's world. Seems we could all use more simplicity in our lives today.

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:
