The Narrow Path The Narrow Path
by Gail Sattler

Well, I've read quite a few of Gail's books, including "Vancouver" (my most favorite city in the world!) and loved them; however, "The Narrow Path" had a different flavor. I have also read a lot of the Amish books out there, but I must say that this Mennonite Brethern story had a unique twist, that being, tradition meet contempory/progressive, all within the same denomination. A bit tricky, I must say, all that Gail pulled off in this book! Rather than tell the plot, I think I can summarize what made this a successful story that also had a very happy ending: Gail's two main characters both had a very deep and mature relationship with the Lord and passionate desire to bring others to the Lord and also keep the existing "flock" strong in their walk. Just how they went about this is where the sparks do fly and Gail's funny bone stars in so many scenes--laugh-out-loud stuff, I am talking about! I started out rolling my eyes at stuffy-stick-in-the-mud-Ted, never dreaming I'd end up being........OOPS! I said I'd not tell the plot-almost spilled the beans, didn't I?!
It didn't hurt any that the book takes place in my beautiful state of Minnesota!
A good, fun read that is perfect to take to the beach, but for sure has a truth to be learned.

the Narrow Path Review
Gail has the gift in, The Narrow Path, as in her other books, of keeping things exciting all the way. It is hard to lay down wondering what will happen next. My husband Glenn also found it very good reading. We were both raised in the Mennonite Church back in the 40's and 50's and can relate to much of it. It is a very good lesson on opposites working together as long as their desire is to serve the Lord.

Wonderful Book
Just finished reading "The Narrow Path"!! What a great book! Living in a mostly Mennonite community with several churches within a few miles, I can identify with some of the things in the book, especially the food! The ladies around here really know how to cook!!! Will there be more of the same type of books in the future?

"GAIL! I just finished The Narrow Path - I loved it so so much. Just the right amount of romance - all the characters were so likable and real. I can't wait for more."

book review
I just finished reading The Narrow Path and loved it. Are you going to write more like this one? Someone asked if they were going to make a movie of the Narrow Path - that would be a great idea. We need more Christian stories out there. I love the Vancouver book - it has so many places mentioned in it that I have been to and I love the stories also. It is one of my favorite books that I often read - the stories don't get old.

Hearts in Harmony Hearts in Harmony
by Gail Sattler

A very touching story. Characters definitely do not have perfect pasts, but I like the way they overcome. I look forward to the next books in this series. Here is the back cover review. I find this helps me to choose a book much better.
Playing guitar for his church's worship team was not going as well as Adrian Braithwaite expected. Which was why he was thrilled to find a talented keyboardist in new church member Celest Hackett. But there was more to the lovely Celeste than met the eye--the skill that Adrian so valued came from her former career in a rock band. And though the pastor welcomed her, a threat from Celeste's past could destroy what she'd worked so hard to build, unless her musical partner could become her partner for life.

Hearts in Harmony Hearts in Harmony
by Gail Sattler

I've read at least a hundred Love Inspireds and this is one of the best. It has great character conflict, honesty, deep emotion, great chemistry between characters. It shows how unconditional love can restore trust. It's an all around excellent book and interesting from the first page because the characters feel like real people. The characters do the appropriate thing in seeking council from the pastor when needed. This issue of the past was referred to but not belabored to the point you want to scream, "Enough Already!" It didn't sound hokey and I was glad to read about a character with a less than stellar background. As a new Christian, she is realistically portrayed in regards to internal conflict. I especially liked the fact that she wanted what was best for the hero, even if it wasn't her. I also loved the fact that the hero saw her a truly forgiven, just like his friends had, rather than punishing her for something she had done before she was saved. A truly inspirational message. I sighed at the end because the love was so intense and real. And the kiss...that made the story worth reading. This is truly one of the page-turners that you'll want to backorder since it's a May 2005 date on the cover.

Great read!
What a great story. I have read many Amish/Mennonite novels and I learned a little more about the Mennonite lifestyle. What is in store next for Ted & Miranda? When will there be a sequel?

I purchased this book from my Church Camp in Mahaffey PA. In our denomanation Christian Missionary Alliance Church, it is our Family Church camp for 10 days starting Friday July 20 and ending Sunday July 29 2012. This book was discounted in our camp bookstore and I bought it and really enjoyed reading it. I am glad Ted proposed to Miranda and that they are going to be married. A very great ending to this noivel. I loved it!!

Such an awesome read!!! I loved the way Gail blended the Old with the New & maintained respect for both. Godly morals were included though the plot was not stuffy in any way. A book that everyone should read!!

Loved, loved, loved the book! Couldn't put it down (actually close my Cloud Kindle)! I could relate having Mennonite heritage and having many, many Mennonite friends, all from different backgrounds. Great read!
