    CAPTIVATING

    Beth Wiseman has outdone herself in this book. She has taken Sadie through some tough decisions in this book but allowed her to follow her heart. Sometimes we want things so badly that we forget to listen to our heart and God. Sadie wanted so badly to be married and have a family that she was willing to do anything to make that happen. Corresponding long distance with an amish gentleman from Texas, she thought she had found her future only to find out that she was miserable. How could something that she has waited so long for be the wrong decision? What was wrong with her, Milo was a gut man? Did it have anything to do with the English renter she had rented her cottage to? How could she be falling in love with an Englisher? Could a wealthy englisher give up his life in the outside world for her or could she give up the Amish world for his?
    This book has a little of everything in it. It was wonderful to learn more about the characters of the first two book and how their lives have continued along. Full of love, romance, and hearbreak.

After two years of writing letters and phone calls with Milo, an Amish man from Texas, Sadie is feeling perhaps the time is coming for her dreams to be fulfilled.

    Plain Promise by Beth Wiseman

    I am a fan of Beth Wiseman's writing and Plain Promise is wonderful!

    Sadie Fisher is a young widow living in a wonderful Amish community where the community is so loyal to take care of her. Her friends help her at her shop where she sells handmade Amish goods to tourists. They bring her fresh meat and vegetables from their own supplies. They also helped her fix up a guest cottage so she could rent it out to the Englisch for extra income.

    Through letters Sadie gets to know an Amish man from Texas who is a widower. They are both Amish and both understand the loss of a spouse and have so much in common. Sadie waits for him to come visit and she prays he will be the one for her.

    Then Sadie gets a new renter in the guest cottage. Kade Saunders, a successful businessman from California, took the advice of his friends and decided to get away from everything for a while and unwind. His vacation doesn't turn out as planned when he suddenly gets custody of his 5 year old autistic son, Tyler, that he barely even knows. Tyler and Sadie have a connection and she finds herself drawn more and more into a relationship with Kade and his son. But, they are Englisch and she is Amish. She isn't even sure it's proper to have a friendship with him, let alone anything more.

    I loved the characers in this story. Sadie is so sweet and kind, and I'm drawn in by the struggle with Kade who loves his son but doesn't know how to relate to this special needs child, especially when he hasn't even seen him in so long. And to have it just thrust upon him causes is a real trial for both of them.

    This is a beautiful story that will draw you in from the start. You won't want to put it down until you get to the end, and then you hate for it to end. This is book 3 in her Daughters of Promise series, and I highly recommend the whole series, but this book can be read on its own and you will really enjoy it!

    A Masterpiece!

    Plain Promise is Beth Wiseman's masterpiece. It's the story of two unlikely friends' journey toward faith and love. This heart-warming novel brings readers hope and paints a beautiful, authentic portrait of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Her characters are so real that they feel like old friends. Once you open the book, you won't put it down until you've reached the last page.
