Meet Chad Allen, a business man living in the big city, who goes on this unexpected road trip to the small Mennonite town of Piney Meadows where he becomes stranded for the night when he runs out of gas and the gas station is already closed for the day. He is drawn to the church where he meets some nice people who want to help him. He gets offered a job and takes it on a whim, but he must learn how to deal with the Mennonite traditions and customs. Anna, literally the girl-next-door and coworker [...]


    2. MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOKThis is the neatest story! For a man like Chad, who lived a pretty fast pace life and had money to buy the finer things in life, to land in an old order Mennonite community was not so easy. But as he meets the people, realizes the trust they have in each other, and the love throughout the community, Chad finds a life that he didn’t know existed. I loved reading this book! I enjoyed seeing the transformation in Chad’s life, as well as his attraction to Anna. I think it [...]


    3. This is an excellent follow up to book one "The Narrow Path." This is the story of Anna and Chad. I hope there will be more in this series!



    4. What does a city boy from Minneapolis and an Mennonite girl have in common with two chickens? The premise behind the incredible novel, The Path to Piney Meadows by author Gail Sattler. Chad Allen is tired of being used at his job while his friend Gary took all the credit. He had the big office and Chad's was a mere closet. Still being at work on Christmas Eve while everyone else had left for the day makes him realize this is not how he wants to spend his life. After working hard to gain his degr [...]


    5. THE PATH TO PINEY MEADOWS was such a heart-warming book that I truly hated for it to end. The characters were so honest and true to God and their hearts. I became so absorbed in the story that I could feel my heart soften and I longed to immerse myself in the Mennonite community. It was that comforting a book. Chad's disillusion with the way the world has become - so fast, so uncaring, so dog-eat-dog, as the saying goes - causes him to throw the towel in and quit his job on Christmas Eve. And, a [...]

    9. I really enjoyed reading “The Path to Piney Meadows” by Gail Sattler. Chad Jones has finally had enough of the rat race that is his life and his job in Minneapolis. On Christmas Eve he finds himself still at work, while his boss and other employees are celebrating with a party. His fiancée with whom he has been living has left him, taking with her all of her stuff and most of his, after he found that she was pregnant. He wanted to marry her, but she has left him with no trace. He packs up w [...]

    11. Tired of the rat race, Chad ends up in a small Mennonite community. I live in a Mennonite community, though we are not Mennonite ourselves. We have spent time with them and I always am comparing the communities in the book, to the community near me. The community in the book allows musical instruments and drama which mine here doesn't. They also use the internet and computers which is not allowed in our area. I find the differences fun to comment on. Their lives are still very simple, and remote [...]


    12. I discovered Gail Sattler quite by accident as I searched for authors of the Mennonite genre, and I am so glad I did! I loved the first book, The Narrow Path and loved this one, too! The author has a real talent for mixing humor, romance, and faith based themes so beautifully. Add to that some characters that you normally wouldn't think would possibly work, and yet the way she weaves it all together, it totally works. That being said, enter City-boy Chad Jones, who is so clueless as he walks int [...]


    13. This is a cute story about a quirky city guy and a simple country girl. It was interesting to see how this guy who's used to the big city adjusts to life in a very small town where everyone walks everywhere. Add to that the whole town being Mennonite and he's constantly doing things at odds with this new culture. I just discovered that the author herself is Mennonite so she knows what she's talking about! It was fun to see what he would do next and how differently they viewed his actions. There' [...]


    14. This book was different and refreshing with many similarities to Amish fiction writing. Instead of Amish, this book was about the Mennonites (very similar). They use electricity and go past the eighth grade in education, however, they still live a plain, simple, and uncomplicated life. This is the second book in a series, and I haven't read the first one YET, but will be. The characters are so likable. I especially love the parts where Chad is taking care of his chickens! Anna is such a breath o [...]

He gets lost and runs out of gas.He ends up in the small town of Piney Meadows. It doesn’t take Chad long to fall for the people of this smallMennonite community. Chad is just amazed by the strong faith of these people. Their faith and trust in God isso strong. It isn’t long before Chad decides to accept a job offer in the small community. Then there is Anna. Chad feels d [...]


    16. This is a gentle, sweetly developed love story about two people who are faced with the decision of which of their two lifestyles, and living locations, they will choose to live together. It is perhaps not as well written as some other of Gail's books, but the story is a good, quiet read for readers who enjoy the simplicity and serenity of Amish romance. I have to confess I didn't finish the book. As often happens to me, it got crowded out by others I had on the go at the time. But I got a fair t [...]


    17. *Received a copy from giveaway*I hate it when books are victims of the pile of unfinished books. Sadly, this book is one of them.I got to pg. 60 and still couldn't get into the story.Sattler is by no means a bad writer; I just couldn't relate to this book.Not my kind of novel.I am saddened that I won this giveaway when someone else could have had the opportunity to enjoy it more than I did.


    18. The book was a very interesting read. The characters were likeable, except for one, whom I really wanted to slap. This was the first time I had read any book about Mennonites/Amish people, even though I own several Christian fiction books about them. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that the Mennonite characters used no contractions when they spoke, so they came across as being stiff, almost one-dimensional. I look forward to reading more books by this author very soon.


    19. I really enjoyed this book from beginning to end. It had a nice story that kept you reading all the way to the end. I live in Lancaster County and it was interesting to find out some facts about the Mennonite community during the story. I received a free copy through and I'm really glad I had the chance to read this story as I might otherwise not have chosen this particular book.
