The Path Taken is a romance that melts the heart and leaves a sigh. Emily and Noah are genuine in their actions and their sensations light up the pages. This reader could not help but feel their joy and sorrow as they seek a need in life with each other. D. K. Abbott creates an inspiring story of love that grips and breathes life. She really captures the emotions that Emily endures that makes this one excellent story. A stylishly composed work that makes the heart leap and brings a great tingling feeling when it is completed. This marvelous read is indeed a keeper. I wish I could give it more than five hearts.
