Book Review~The Path to Piney Meadows


About the Book

The Path to Piney Meadows
By Gail Sattler

Will a new way of life solve problems or just create new ones?    Fed up with life in a large city, Chad Allen quits his job on Christmas Eve and drives until he’s stranded in the remote Mennonite town of Piney Meadows. He accepts a job there on a whim, but the longer he stays, the more he likes these good people and their strong faith. Most of all, he grows fond of Anna, the girl next door, and the more he gets to know her, the more he falls in love with her.    The only problem is that Anna is not happy in Piney Meadows. Even as Chad wants to settle in, Anna wants to move out. She longs to move to Minneapolis and find a new life. Reluctantly, Chad agrees to help Anna prepare for life in a large city, even as she’s helping him adjust to life in Piney Meadows.    But when a personal crisis shakes Chad to his core, he’s not sure where to turn. He’d been let down by everyone he knew, even God. Now that the situation has reared its ugly head again, can his relationship with Anna survive? Or will he have to let her go, too?

What I Thought

I loved this book!  The Path to Piney Meadows was like a breath of fresh air!  I read a lot of Amish fiction, and reading a Mennonite story was a fun change.  Life in Piney Meadows was like stepping back in time, and I was hooked immediately.  I could not put this book down-the author did a wonderful job keeping the story moving and having interesting, well developed characters.  I look forward to reading more of Gail Sattler's books!
