Summary

Vance never saw this coming.   When Vance Bolden finds a young woman washed ashore after a storm, he's shocked but determined to help her. The task is daunting enough. . .then Vance discovers that Evelyn Weber is with child. As he makes the most of a precarious situation, Vance can't help but remember the young wife and son he lost while he served in the Confederate army.   Before leaving the London mission she called home for twenty-two years, Evelyn was convinced that God's will for her life was to travel to America and work among the Cherokee in North Carolina. And she still is, although the strange turn of events certainly makes her undertaking more difficult. Now stranded and without knowledge of her husband's fate, Evelyn sees a hard road ahead where trusting a stranger is her only route to survival.   Despite wounds from the past, can Vance and Evelyn take a risk on each other, on God, and on love?

    With a vibrant, fresh style Suzanne Woods Fisher brings readers into the world of a young Amish woman torn between following the man she loves--or joining the community of faith that sustains her, even as she questions some of the decisions of her elders. Her choice begins a torrent of change for her and her family, including a marriage of convenience to silent Daniel Miller. Both bring broken hearts into their arrangement--and secrets that have been held too long. Filled with gentle romance, The Choice opens the world of the Amish--their strong communities, their simple life, and their willingness to put each other first. Combined with Fisher's exceptional gift for character development, this novel, the first in a series, is a welcome reminder that it is never too late to find your way back to God.
