Along Wooded Paths by Tricia Goyer Litfuse Tour


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.

Find out about book 1, Beside Still Waters, here:


Tricia Goyer does it again! Along Wooded Paths will capture you from the first page and not let go. I found myself immersed in Marianna's life, her emotional struggle and her relationship with God. She struggles between an Amish man and an Englischer, both who walk with God in different ways. She lives a plain life, but one with questions. Characters from Beside Still Waters reappear in Along Wooded Paths, along with new characters that will inspire and give one hope. I can't wait to see what Tricia has in store for her readers next. I just devoured this one!

  1. Thanks for participating. What a fun space here. Poor Eeyore what a sad little donkey. Fangs, Wands and Fairy Dust

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
