Overview

Emma decided long ago that she was going to marry Isaac Stoltzfus. Since she was ten, she’d dreamt of being Isaac’s wife, of fixing up a small farmhouse, of raising boppli together. But now, Isaac’sRumschpringe has introduced him to new ways—and much to Emma’s dismay, Isaac seems to be enjoying them.


Is the man Emma now sees in Isaac the same man she fell in love with all those years ago? He seems more like a stranger who wears jeans and a short haircut and listens to rock music. He has moved out of his parents home, gotten a job, and worse, wants Emma to join him in the Englisch world. How can she possibly leave behind her family, friends, church—and all the dreams she once had for her future with Isaac? But if she loves him, how can she not? Emma is at a crossroads. And her decision will change her life forever.

    Crossroads by Barbara Cameron is truly a good book. It touches your heart and the characters are believable with their flaws, their faith, the hurt they feel and the love they have for others. Emma has loved Isaac since they were children. Just when she thought they would be getting married Isaac starts acting like a stranger. He seems to be wanting to become English. When he asks Emma something she immediately breaks up with him. Does she follow her heart and leave the Amish to be with Isaac or lose Isaac and stay within her community, church and family. Isaac needs to grow up and decide what he truly wants. I enjoyed this book as I do all of Barbara Cameron's books. She always touches my heart with her writing, her faith and her understanding of human nature. If you enjoy reading about the Amish, human nature and romance then this book is for you. I won this book in a contest and loved it. No one asked me to leave a review but when I enjoy one this much I leave reviews. Hope this books blesses you as it did me.

    A story that really could happen in any culture, boy loves girl, and girl doesn’t want to loose boy she loves. Does she move in with him without the benefit of marriage, knowing that doing so she will be looked down by the people of her faith, and for her to compromise her beliefs? What a choice for her, she is at the crossroads in her decision, and no one should have to choose love or loose all that she cherishes.
    This is living in an Amish culture, and shunning is what will happen to Emma if she chooses to move in and live with her childhood sweetheart Isaac. Can see how Emma felt her world was crashing down around her, and how she chooses.
    We learn and experience a lot of good learning life lessons here, and we also experience some very serious decisions. Some are so heart breaking, and others are very scary. We enter into the lives of several of people and learn how their faith enters into each of their decisions, and others we hope will learn to lean on God.
    Come along and enjoy emersion in Amish society and see the life changing decisions being made. Will each of our new friends make the right choices or will we be saying goodbye? I enjoyed reading this book, and my heart ached for some of the choices, and life happenings here. Enjoy!

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

    First of all, I LOVE the cover! It invited me to want to read this book. Second, I like Barbara Cameron's books and I have read most of them - another reason to choose this book. I would say for the most part this is a slice of life Amish fiction novel. The characters are likable, having the same questions and doubts we do, and most importantly they have the capacity and ability to grow and change. There are no huge issues visited, but many smaller ones that we Englisch can certainly relate to. It was kind of nice to read a slice of life with normal and understandable problems. One thing that surprised me was that the use of a cell phone seemed normal to this group of Amish. I am always surprised at how different groups view modern conveniences, and how different bishops respond. This was a great summer read!
