Sarah's Choice by Wanda Brunstetter

Although Wanda is perhaps known best for her Amish stories, her series on Lehigh Canal of Pennsylvania is as captivating as all her books are. I read this book shortly after it came out on the shelves, and have read numerous books since then, but one mention of Sarah's Choice and i am transported back to the story. It is not what i would call a suspensful story, but it is a page turner! And perhaps don't have cookies baking in the oven while you are reading this. How often have i not thought i wanted something, only to have it disappoint me when i do get it? Or the path that looks so bright, is filled with shadows? Sarah learns that God's ways are not our ways, and His thoughts are higher than our thoughts. I definitely recommend Sarah's Choice to all my friends, and anyone who reads this. I would give it a 10 out of 10! i would also recommend it to young readers!

On Dec. 1st, "Sarah's Choice," book 3 in theBrides of Lehigh Canal series was released.  
Sarah Turner tends the lock on the Lehigh Canal in Walnutport, Pennsylvania. She'd like nothing better than to get away from the canal, having enough of it as a child when she led the mules that pulled her father's boat. But being a widow with three small children, she seems to have no other option. Sarah isn't looking for love again, but should she ever find it, she knows it could never be with a canal man.

Elias Brooks has left his newspaper job in Easton to captain the canal boat bequeathed to him by his grandfather. When he stops at the lock, Elias meets Sarah, a pretty woman with determination and courage, and her three children, who seem eager for his attention. Could a woman like her ever look past the ugly red birthmark on the side of his face and see the heart within?

Sarah's side job is taking in laundry and baking bread for boatmen. . .and one good-looking blacksmith named Patrick O'Grady.

Who will unlock the key to Sarah's heart-the boatman or the blacksmith?
