About the book: Book 1 in the new Amish Roads series
Elizabeth is at a crossroad. She's been given the chance to experience life outside of her community, away from the responsibility to care for her eight younger siblings, but Elizabeth Bontrager can't decide which road to take. Goshen has its charms and pressures, but Paradise, Pennsylvania, sounds . . . well, like paradise. And it's also home to her Englisch friend, Paula. Decision made. Elizabeth is Paradise bound.
But will the small town live up to its name? When Elizabeth meets Paula's friend, Bruce, she quickly learns he wants more than a friendship. And the same might be true of Saul Miller, her new boss at the country story that sells Amish products to the Englisch community. As the two compete for her attention, Elizabeth is surprised to realize she misses her family and becomes even more uncertain about where she belongs. She has a choice to make: return home or embrace this new life and possibly a new love?

My Thoughts:
A Road Unknown, if I'm being honest, just did not grab my attention.  Too many clues are given away too early in the story and I lost interest about halfway through the book.  Character development was a little sketchy and plot development was lacking.  It just blended in to every other Amish story I've read.
With that being said, Cameron does introduce us to an intriguing little town.  I'm hoping as the series continues that characterization will deepen a little.  While Cameron touches a little on birth order in this book, I'm interested in seeing what other themes run throughout the series.

Thank you Litfuse Publicity for the complimentary copy of the book given for the purpose of this review.
