Book Recommendation

Plain Perfect
By: Beth Wiseman

At just a few pages shy of 300, I started and finished this book this evening as it was that good. Despite the fact that I am smitten by the Amish ways, I adore a book that I can truly picture myself in. It was so good that I didn't skip to the end to find out how it ended, I just wanted to read in the moment..which, never happens! I laughed and cried-it was just that good. ..without giving too much away, as I was reading her heart turn more towards God it created a new spark within me.

It made me want to get rid of all my "earthly" possessions and move to the small Amish community near my home.. but then I realized how much I truly enjoy those earthly things (AC, Car, AC, AC, Electricity, AC, wedding rings, jeans, heels, AC..the list is truly endless)Plus- my hair in this VA humidity? Whew, let's not even go there.

Haha...yes, I agree. I think the simplicity of life would be nice sometimes. But then I think about air conditioning....and I think, whatev, I'm good here.
What book did you read? You probably said it, but I just thought I would throw that out there.

I enjoy books about the Amish, too. Have you read Plain Truth by Jodi Picoult? If you like Amish lit, you might like this one!

We went to Amish Country for our 1st anniversary since it is so close to our house...so awesome! I thought it was going to be totally lame...but now I am in love with the Amish and want to learn all about them!
