I know that this is a series book and I have not read the other books before this, but it was still great. I didn’t feel lost and the characters were very much alive to me.
I like the fact that some of the situations that Miriam was going through any woman can experience. How...more
The summary above makes it sound like Miriam's romance in the focus of this book; yet in many ways it is not. Beth Wiseman also explores the relationship between Miriam and her family, between Miriam and her cousin and between Saul and his family. As Amish fiction goes, it is a bit on the religious side and features one of the characters finding God in her life, but I wouldn't call it a preachy book. I question how realistic it is, but since I've never met any real Amish, I'll leave...more

To say that I'm a huge fan of Beth Wiseman would be the understatement of the year. I just cannot get enough of her books! Her books all have simple Amish storylines, but there's something about them that draws me in every single time.
Now, I'm a huge fan of Amish fiction, in general, and have been since Beverly Lewis' first book. I have learned so much about their lifestyle, their beliefs, and their quiet strengths. But the way those characteristics are displayed in a Beth Wiseman book...more

Plain Proposal is the 5th book in Beth Wiseman's series, The Daughters of the Promise.
I received a copy of Plain Proposal as an advance review copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I am under no obligation to write a positive review, just an honest one.
I will also start off by saying that I have not read the first 4 books in this series, and I had no problem reading this one, therefore, I consider it a stand-alone novel, even if it is part of a large...more
This is actually the first Amish novel I've ever read and I can honestly say that I loved it. Part of me found myself wishing I could live such a life in all its simplicity even in the face of adversity and the hard work they perform every day. This book is not just about a love story but also about making decisions, learning your place in life and figuring out what you truly want.
I love the way Beth Wiseman writes, you can see the characters and the lan...more
