A Narrow Path by Gail Sattler hooked me from page one. This contemporary Mennonite romance left me wanting more.
Miranda Klassen accepted a year long commission to write and direct a musical for the Mennonite church in a small Minnesota town. She is excited about the opportunity, but soon realizes she doesn’t fit in with the old Mennonite ways. She works hard to be accepted especially by her biggest critic, the music director, Ted Wiebe.
Ted Wiebe is shocked that the woman they hired from Seattle to take over the church musical is not like his people. She’s modern, wears jeans and is more comfortable with a cell phone than a pen and paper.
I’ve been a fan of Sattler’s for years and haven’t read a book yet by her that I didn’t like. I was especially impressed with how I could “see” the story clearly in my mind. A Narrow Path was a refreshing take on all the Amish and in this case Mennonite books out there.
