English term or phrase:had a new way before them
Events chase and overtake each other, thus inevitably changing people’s ways.
Our five friends, too, had a new way before them. Now they were to make for the Miracle Mountains.
Dear native English speakers!
Please advise on the phrase – is it possible to put it this way? Frankly speaking, the original is a bit different, something like “Our five friends had to change their path as well”, which is closer to the previous “philosophical” sentence. But I don’t think using “change their way” is a good idea, since it could be gotten wrong. That’s why I’m trying to find another way.
I’ll appreciate any suggestions.
