Overview

In an original eBook novella set in the Amish community of Lancaster County—sure to captivate readers of Cindy Woodsmall and Beverly Lewis—Rosalind Lauer explores the choices a heart makes for love.
 
Lizzy King has been blessed by nearly five years of marriage to her husband, Joe, but her heart is heavy. Grieving the child she carried only briefly, Lizzy is uncertain how to heal. In an Amish community where big families and laughing children are a way of life, she feels lost. Thank goodness for her friend Juanita, whose family owns the Puerto Rican restaurant next door to the King family’s cheese shop.
 
Nita understands the pressure and joys of a large family, and she, too, is at a crossroads. Nita’s strict parents intend for her to marry a man she doesn’t love—but her heart already belongs to another. Knowing the time has come to take a stand, Nita struggles to find the courage to fight for her future.
 
As two women help each other to find their way home to love, they discover that the heart is the brightest star—and its guiding light cannot be extinguished.
 
Includes an exclusive preview of the first novel in Rosalind Lauer’s upcoming Lancaster Crossroads series, A Simple Faith.

    Start with this 1st...

    While you don't havd to.start with this novela 1st it's a good start to the new series. At first glance you may think.you have started the two series of books in.the wrong.order you haven't. I like that it familiarizes you with characters from her series Seasons of Lancaster without the added bagage of rehashing characters from the first series in this second series.

    We are crossing two cultures here, one Amish and one English from a strong ethnic Puerto Rican family. They both help at Market Place, Juanita, an Amish wife, and Nita, trying to please her parents.
    When Juanita suffers a miscarriage it is Nita that helps her, thus a strong friendship is founded. While Juanita struggles with her loss, and coping with not having a baby, she confides more and more in Nita. When Nita needs someone to talk to Juanita is there for her.
    You wonder how long these two women on different paths will be able to stay friends. When Nita’s parents find out her secret, will she be able to return to the Market, or will Juanita’s Amish roots bring her home and not at work any longer?
    I enjoyed how this book worked out, not always like I thought it would. Loved the compassion and faith these people showed, don’t miss excellent book by a great storyteller Rosalind Lauer. Enjoy!

    I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Ballantine Books, and was not required to give a positive review.

    My Review: 




    This was the 3rd book/novella that I have read of Rosalind's and it was just as good as the two I read prior. I though she did a good job of developing the characters and storyline. I was exactly sure at the beginning the way she was going to go with Lizzy's story but after reading a couple chapters it made more sense. In addition, I liked that she involved characters from previous books so you were able to catch up on what they were doing. 




    I think this was a quick and easy read that both christian fiction and romance readers alike would enjoy. I would recommend to read this book on a weekend or a vacation due to it was hard for me to put it down! 




    Can't wait to see more books from this author and to read her other series!

    A Simple Crossroads is a fantastic novella. The author did an excellent job showing the interaction between the different cultures and faith. The storyline is well-written and each character had their own different personality with troubles showing how their faith helped each one. Also, despite the differences in each person, they could in some way be a help to each other. I enjoyed reading this novella and highly recommend reading it. I'm looking forward to the next book I will read by author Rosalind Lauer.

    I received a complimentary copy from the publisher and Net Galley in exchange for my honest review. This review is one hundred percent my opinion. Thank you Random House Publishing-Ballantine and Net Galley for the opportunity to read A Simple Crossroads: A Lancaster Crossroads Novella by Rosalind Lauer.
