"A Path Made Plain": Seasons in Pinecraft - Book 2 by Lynette Sowell

Book Description:
Betsy Yoder lives with her great aunt in Sarasota’s Pinecraft neighborhood, far from her family in Ohio. Heartbroken by a man who left her—and the Order—to marry someone else, Betsy instead pours her time and energy into her bakery, offering the village of Pinecraft delicious desserts from her Amish heritage, and is content in her hard-working yet peaceful life.

Enter the formerly Amish Thaddeus Zook, a pastry chef who has moved to Pinecraft after working in restaurants among the Englisch. While Betsy nurses a hesitant heart, Thaddeus shows a similar hesitancy about rejoining an Amish community. Though neither can deny the attraction between them, Thaddeus is hiding a past that could threaten their future together. Betsy has lost one love already; dare she risk loving another who has adopt Englisch ways? Or will Thad listen to the call of the open road and move on again . . . without the love of his life?

My Review:"A Path Made Plain" is the second book in Lynette Sowell's Seasons of Pincraft Series. "A Path Made Plain" is Betsy Yoder's story. And it is just as wonderful as the first book " A Season Of Change" . 

Betsy's heart is broken because Jacob, ( her not so secret crush) has married someone else and so she puts all her talents and energy into her bakery.  

Thaddeus Zook, a former Amish man, who left the Amish to pursue a career as a chef. returns to his grandmother, who has been the only one who has ever loved him.The question is why did he return?

As in all love stories, two people have to meet and so Betsy and Thad do meet. Thad hasn't been baptized so he is still Amish but he rides a motorcycle and he is a chef, not a farmer. That makes two strikes against Thad.

Betsy has an enemy, who is jealous of her and wants to cause trouble for her in all her efforts! This just shows us that the Amish faces the same temptations and struggles as everyone else. 

This book is a love story but there is a mystery in between the pages! Who is the mystery man ( a new Amish) or is he Amish at all or does he have a evil purpose?

The ending is so perfect but I really didn't see it ending the way it did! But I loved the way it does!

I have to be honest and tell you that I was sure this book was going to be a different type of story, I was sure Betsy's story was going to be a little boring because she was going to turn out to be a selfish type person, an unlikable person, but I am happy to say I was so wrong!

This book reintroduces us to the characters that are in " A Season Of Change" and even though you don't have to read "A Season Of Change" to love " A Path Made Change" I encourage you to do so to get the full story. And there is a third book " A Promise Of Grace. I haven't read " A Promise Of Grace" it is a new release but I have it in my to be read pile and I am counting on it to be just as wonderful as the other two.

"A Path Made Plain"is  getting five stars!

I was given a copy of "A Path Made Plain" by Lynette Sowell by the Publisher for my honest review!
