The Choice

By: Suzanne Woods Fisher

This story takes place in the Amish community in Lancaster County. Carrie Weaver is an Amish girl who has fallen in love with Solomon Riehl. She is ready to leave the Amish community and follow him as he leaves to become a pitcher for the Lancaster Barnstormers. When tragedy strikes in Carrie's family these plans change and there are hard choices to be made. In each part of this book all the characters are faced with difficult choices that must be made and the results that follow. Some choices are made without due consideration and the results are not what Carrie and Solomon expect.This story helps readers to see how things that we think are meant for us are not and how God causes things to happen to help us to fully see the plans that he has for us. Each character must learn the important lesson of forgiveness and learn from the things that have happened in the past to have a happy future.

I really enjoyed this book because it helped me to face some of the choices that I have had to make in my own life. This book really shows that no matter the plans that we make God has bigger and better things in store for us. It helps to encourage forgiveness and the importance of learning from the past and moving on to face the future with a new positive outlook.
