My Review of A Path Less Traveled

Here's a description of the book:

"Trish James is tired of being rescued. When a spooked horse claims her husband's life, she’s determined to blaze a path for herself and her traumatized son without outside help. But will that mean leaving the place etched on her heart?

Andy Tyler has had to struggle for everything, and starting a new law practice in Miller's Creek, Texas is no different. Though prepared for business challenges, he's not prepared for falling in love--especially with yet another woman who will probably abandon him for her career.

Will Andy and Trish be able to see past their limited human understanding to take a path less traveled?
"

My Rating: Spring

My Review:

A beautiful book with a beautiful message, A Path Less Traveled is an enjoyable story! The pieces of the plot come together to form a touching picture of the release that comes with trusting God and seeking His path.

While it's difficult and a bit frustrating at times to read about these characters' inner and outer struggles, overall Trish, Andy, and Little Bo (along with the whole cast of characters from Miller's Creek) won my heart. Their issues with pride, independence, fear, and longing are all too familiar, making it easy for the reader to relate with the hero and heroine. The various settings are also familiar in a comfortable sort of way, but are described engagingly, with lots of sensory details involved.

I really enjoyed my time in Miller's Creek, as well as the opportunity to meet these characters and be reminded along with them of the sovereignty and trustworthiness of God. A Path Less Traveled is a sweet journey, indeed!

*With thanks to author Cathy Bryant for providing me with a copy of the book in exchange for my honest opinion. And my apologies to the author, as well, for the delay in completing my review!*
