    Flat and Predictable

    A Man of His Word, by Kathleen Fuller, is a romance with the "Plain People"--the Amish. Moriah marries Levi and starts her life as a new wife. But things are not well for the newlyweds. On the day Moriah learns she is pregnant, Levi decides to leave the Amish and his wife. Under Amish law, Moriah cannot get married again, so she is trapped in limbo. Gabriel, Levi's brother, has always loved Moriah, but she locks him out of her life in sorrow and depression.

    I got the book because the idea of a story about the Amish sounded intriguing. Ms. Fuller captures the flavor of a different society very well. However, the story itself was flat and predictable. When I read that Moriah could not get married again, I knew instantly what would have to happen for the romance with Gabriel to bloom, and it happens. What then follows is many pages of Moriah sinking into self-pity about her problems, and I kept wanting someone to come in and give her a stern shake to bring her out of the funk. There's so much self-pity that it never gives time for the romance with Gabriel to develop.
