All she wanted was a simple Amish life . . . But now Marianna Sommer finds herself depending on Englisch neighbors. Although proud of living apart from the world, she and her newly relocated Amish family have discovered that life in the remote mountains of Montana requires working together.

As Marianna begins helping those different from herself—and receiving their help—her heart contemplates two directions. She’s torn between the Amish man from Indiana whom she has long planned on marrying and the friendly Englischer who models a closer walk with God than she’s ever seen before.

Who should have young Marianna’s heart? What is God asking her to sacrifice? Her traditions? Her community? The answer is found along the wooded paths.

    A Wavering Heart

    Surrounded by remote mountains in Montana, where the Amish and ¿Englich¿ mingle, Marianna¿s heart is pulled in two directions. Aaron offers a secure love within the realms of the Amish faith. Ben, an ¿Englicher¿, has shown Marianna¿s new ways to draw close to God. His kindness to her family and others is deeply valued. He offers his heart and a simple life.

    This is a delightful story, filled with the struggles of young love and the consequences of choice and accountability. It is one of closed doors opened to serve one another in a closed knot community. The characters are well rounded, full of emotion, and there is plenty of adventure to keep the pages turning.

    Highly recommended - I couldn't put it down!

    Along Wooded Paths A Big Sky Novel impressed me with the depth of knowledge the author had and conveyed of Amish traditions and ways. Unlike novels set in traditional locations, this one plays out in Colorado. The heroine is so believable as she struggles to find her way with her God, her life, and her way to love. A talent for description adds to the ambiance of the story and provides a beautiful setting for the characters, all of whom are extremely believable. I ached for Marianna as she searched for her answers - and loved her for her very human feelings and choices.

    Amish readers - a must read

    Having lived in southern Maryland for five years in an Amish area, this book took me back. I liked the insider look at the Amish and the struggle they have with the outside world kept me turning pages. The specific faith issues were intriguing. I had never considered how contact between the Englisch and Amish might bring up questions of faith.

    A SWEET BUT COMPLICATED LOVE STORY

    This is the second book in a series, the first being BESIDE STILL WATERS. The book's main character is Marianna Sommers. She is Amish but has grown to love her new neighbors in Montana. She has become very fond of Ben, an English man who introduced her to God and music. But she still has feelings for Aaron, an Amish man that she always thought she would marry. To complicate things, Aaron travels to Montana to see her and has an accident and must stay with her and her family while he heals. Both Ben and Aaron care for her deeply. But Ben walks away to keep from hurting her but they are both missing each other so much. You can just feel Marianne's heart hurting as she tried to do the right thing, to obey God in her decision. I really enjoyed this book and can't wait for the third book to come out so I can see who she marries. If you love reading sweet, Amish love stories, you will not be disappointed in this one. Also, reading the first in a series is always a good idea not mandatory for this series. I would like to thank B& H Publishers for giving me a complementary copy of this book to read and review honestly.

    A Continuing Story

    This is the second book in this series, and you do not have needed to have read the first one to enjoy this book, but I would recommend you do.
    Marianna continues to strengthen her relationship with God. Her boyfriend Aaron arrives in Montana, with a broken leg from an accident that happened on his way there. He ends up staying with the Sommers, and makes Marianna questioning her relationships in both the English and Amish worlds.
    I loved the heart of the people of this small town, they seem to be there for people in need.
    There are some questions answered in this book as to whom Marianna will end up....Aaron or Ben? Also what happens to Levi, and what has been bothering Mam.
    A very enjoyable read!
    I was provided with a copy of this book by the publisher, and was not required to give a positive review.

    2nd in Big Sky series is romance with real emotional heft

    Along a Wooded Path by Tricia Goyer is the second book in the Big Sky series about Marianna Sommer who moved with her family from Indiana to an Amish community in Montana to start anew. At the end of Beside Still Waters, the previous book, Marianna had decided to stay in Montana and continue enjoying the new depth of her relationship with God, despite her growing feelings for Englischer, Ben. Aaron, the man Marianna left behind in Indiana, decides to head to Montana and determine whether she still loves him and will return with him to the house he built with her in mind. Shortly after his arrival, Aaron is in a car accident that leaves him with a broken leg and forced to live with the Sommer family and rely upon their mercy. While there, he can't help but notice Marianna's comfortableness with working outside the home, as well as her relationship with Ben. Goyer does a terrific job at keeping readers guessing in this romance. In many romances, it's obvious who the heroine should choose, but here it's not so obvious. Both Aaron and Ben are good men with genuine feelings for Marianna, but if she should choose Ben, it means leaving behind her whole way of life and family. Marianna's choice will not be an easy one, and with the shocking revelation at the end of this story, Goyer will have readers highly anticipating the next book in the series.
