PLAIN PROPOSAL by Beth Wiseman

Plain Proposal
A Daughters of the Promise Novel
by Beth Wiseman
Best Selling Author of Plain Perfect
Published by Thomas Nelson

Miriam Raber was in her rumschpringe, the Amish running around period, before joining the church.
She is in love with Saul Fisher, and has been for years.  She hopes to join the church, marry Saul, and raise a family in the community where she grew up.

Saul though he loves Miriam, has other plans, he wants to move away from Paradise and become a chef.
He has a secret that he doesn't dare share with anyone else in the community, only he and his two younger brothers know this secret.  He tells Miriam that he is leaving Paradise, and she should forget him. She vows to follow him, wherever he leads.  Will she follow him, or will she join the church and marry someone else?  What will it do to her parents, if she leaves?

Miriam's cousin, Shelby, comes to visit, for the summer.  Her parents have divorced, and felt that Shelby should be somewhere else while they try to get her life straightened out.  Shelby isn't Amish, so the life she is thrown into, is completely different from anything she's ever seen. 

This book is different than any other Amish story I've read.  A lot of twists, and everything doesn't work out like most would.  I really enjoyed the book, and would think that anyone who likes Amish stories would also enjoy it.

I recieved a copy of this book to read and review, from Thomas Nelson, through their BookSneeze program.  I recieved no other compensation, and I was not required to give a favorable review.

Jettie- This sounds like a wonderful book...and you are right~most of the books about the Amish are pretty predictable so I like that this one has all the twists and turns. xxoo Diana
