Overview

Sadie Always Believed in God’s Promises. But Can She Really Trust His Heart?

Young Amish widow, Sadie Fisher, leads a simple life in the quiet countryside of Lancaster County selling Amish goods to a steady stream of tourists. Though it is a good life, lately she’s wondered if it is God’s will for her to remain without a husband and a family.

Winters can be brutally cold and lonely in Pennsylvania, so Sadie rejoices when a renter signs up for a three month stay in her guest cottage. But when wealthy, impulsive Englischer Kade Saunders arrives, she isn’t sure she wants him around that long. Sadie feels the stress of the bishop’s watchful eye, expecting her to act in accordance with the Ordnung, the understood behavior by which the Amish live. To complicate things, Kade is soon surprised with sole custody of a child he barely knows—his five-year-old autistic son, Tyler.

Sadie and young Tyler form an immediate connection. As she grows to love and understand this exceptional child, her feelings for Kade grow into something that both terrifies and exhilarates her. And while Kade seems to feel the attraction to her as well, their worlds couldn’t be farther apart.

Sadie must stay true to her Amish roots, but denying the love she feels is impossible. Could it be that God has the improbable in store for Sadie? And will she have the faith to step into a love bigger than she’s ever dreamed possible?

I have read all 3 of the books in the series and look foward to the 4th. I really like all of them, wonderful, lovable main charcters,and many secondary characters and conflicts.

This book felt like more of a fluff novel than anything. It is a basic love story, except it is centered around an Amish town and main character. Love stories that are unique and fresh can be very exciting. This book is not an example of that. The fact that the plot can be summed up so quickly is disappointing to me. The plot is simple. Man moves to Amish town, Amish girl falls in love with him. Things keep them apart, things bring them together, trials and tribulations, etc. etc. The ending was predictable, which left me disappointed, feeling as if I had wasted my time. I really had hopes for this book. I wanted the characters to develop, and I wanted the story to unfold into something more complex that sucked me in. "Plain Promise" was just like an other love story, and the Amish element did nothing to help this. In fact, I feel like the writing being centered around an Amish character left it somewhat stale. Maybe a different author could have created a more gripping story, but for now I think that Wiseman should find a different genre to write. If you want a simple book to read, I'd recommend "Plain Promise". If you want a book that is gripping and a great read, look elsewhere.

One would think that after a while all Amish stories start to blend together. While that may be the case, the trick is to write a good and unique story to make it stand apart. I think that's what Beth Wiseman has done with her books, because so far I've really enjoyed all of them. Sadie is unique because not only is she a widow, she rents out her cottage (that has electricity!) to an Englisch single man, and she's writing letters to another Amish guy in another state. That's quite a bit of excitement for people who are supposed to be living simple lives. I really thought it was interesting to bring a topic like autism into the Amish world and see how they would react to it. Sadie doesn't really know what exactly is going on (I guess no one in the Amish gets it?) but she does her best to try to comfort Tyler whenever he starts getting antsy. The Bible verse speaking is a bit freaky but it adds to the story very well. To be honest, from the brief interaction we had with her and the way Kade described her, I was not a fan of Tyler's mother and actually quite glad as to what happened to her. I know that sounds terribly sadistic but the way she handled the situation was done very poorly and she should have thought of the consequences better. I did feel that this book did go into the over dramatic side at times with everything that happened in the book. Also the ending was a bit predictable, as I knew exactly what Kade was going to do as soon as I started reading. I think for once it would be interesting to have one spouse remain Amish and the other to stay non-Amish but I guess that would make things too difficult. Overall though, I did like the book. I enjoy this author's style of writing as it is comforting and she does a good job of bringing the characters to life. I'll be looking forward to when the fourth book in the series comes out next year.

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.

It seems that Mrs. Wiseman has lost some of the luster her first two books had. The long awaited story for Sadie was anticlimactic at best. While the story moved forward it was lacking the vivaciousness of her first two books. The story lacked the spiritual journey her first two books had. While one character was searching for God and another was questioning Gods plan, it just seemed to be sadly lacking. I can only hope that her next book will have a more balanced story of only the two main characters and not the whole Order. Over all i give it only 2 stars out of 5. Worth reading it at the bookstore sitting area, but not for buying.

This is book is a part of the Daughters of the Promise Novel series. Sadie Fisher is a widow living in Lancaster County, but is faced with many challenges. Her wish is that someone will rent her cottage, but when a bishop moves in things begin to get complicated. Not only does she feel the pressure of having to abide by the Amish rules and ways in his presence, but things take yet another twist when he finds out he has custody of a young autistic son that he does not have a close relationship with! The book has many unexpected twists and turns, with a fun romantic story weaved throughout. I highly recommend it! You'll even get to enjoy a few traditional Amish recipes tucked away in the back of the book!!
