Miranda Klassen and Ted Wiebe are both Mennonites. But they couldnít be more different. Miranda is a modern city girl with the latest gadgets. Ted is a old fashioned man who lives his life without the benefit of such modern necessities as microwaves and dishwashers.
The Narrow Path is the story of these two religious individuals who have similar ideals, but very different lives. They come together in a town which reminds Miranda of "Little House on the Prairie," and try to find a way to help open an old order Mennonite church in Tedís community.
Miranda makes a few mistakes while trying to fit into the community but soon learns that the people of the town accept her anyway. She and Ted have to deal with their growing feelings amongst the many challenges they have as individuals.
This book was interesting and entertaining although a little slow in spots. Miranda and Ted, although appearing to be very different at first actually end up being more alike than they realize. The secondary characters also add a great deal to the book. The story is inspirational and sweet and makes for a pleasant read for those particularly interested in this genre.
