If you are an Amish fiction junkie like me, then you’ll love Plain Paradise. It’s the sweet coming of age story of Linda, a young girl who’s madly in love with her beau and anxiously awaiting a proposal. But her life is turned upside down when she discovers she is adopted and her birth mother is an Englisher—a very rich and fancy Englisher. Just when she gets used to the idea of her new family status and she starts embracing her birth mother as a friend, a devastating secret is uncovered that will change everything.
I love reading Amish fiction and I generally stick to the same couple of authors because I know I’ll like them. I was delighted to discover Beth Wiseman’s book because I’d never read anything by her before and I really enjoy her writing style! She’s entertaining and believable and really pulls you into her characters’ world. She also makes the message of Christ very clear as she weaves it seamlessly throughout the story and the characters’ lives.
Ultimately, this book is one of redemption, renewal, hope, and salvation. It’s fun to read and really grabs your attention from the start. I absolutely loved it. I can’t wait to get my hands on more of this fabulous author’s work!
