Marian Baay's Review for A Road Called Love by Murray Pura

A Road Called Love


Reviewed by Marian Baay
~5 stars~*****

You’ve just got to love the Amish sisters Michal and Tabitha Troyer—both in their rumspringa. On the day of Tabitha’s 16th birthday her rumspringa starts. This is also the day she decides to take off on the back of a motorcycle with her Englisher friend Nick. Everyone expected them to come back by the end of the day, but they did not return. Tabitha and Nick want to explore America on a Harley. Their parents are worried sick, but they can’t force them to come home because they are of age. Then an unexpected request is asked of Michal and her friend Milwaukee—take Milwaukee’s motorcycle and go in search of Tabitha. This is the start of a journey full of adventure and danger. While they are traveling they try to figure out their feelings about joining the Amish church and also their feelings for each other.

A journey that started out as the hunt for Tabitha becomes life changing for both Michal and Milwaukee. While they are following Tabitha’s trail, they also take time to enjoy the beauty of America.

During their journey they meet several interesting people who will help them understand Tabitha and why she really left. They also help them to find their destiny in God.
The closer they get to Tabitha the more they realize she might be in great danger. Will they ever catch up with her in time?

Wow, what a thrilling and fabulous book!—one of Murray Pura’s best writings. I enjoyed this story immensely. There was a longing inside me to join Michal and Milwaukee on their road trip. How I would love to see all of the beauty they saw!

Yes, this book is about the Amish. No, you can’t compare it with anything you have read before. Murray Pura is known for his intriguing stories and original plots. When you start reading his work you will be glued to the pages and forget everything around you!
If I was not convinced before, I am now—Mr. Pura can write any genre and write it well! I honestly hope to see more contemporary books written by this brilliant author!


This book first released in 4 e-book volumes and is now available as a complete download. 
The paperback will be out soon. My review is of the complete book.

Buy Murray Pura's books at AmazonCBDBarnes & Noble, or other bookstores.

  27. I don't read much Amish fiction because they all started to start the same, but this certainly sounds like something new and different!
