About the book:

Two friends from different worlds—one Old Order Amish, one Englischer—share the truths that bring them together. (Nonfiction)

With poignant recollections, unexpected insights, and humorous tales, the two women welcome you into their unique friendship. You’ll also gain a rare glimpse into the traditions and ways of the Amish as Miriam recalls special occasions and shares family recipes throughout the book.

Plain Wisdom is a heartwarming celebration of God, womanhood, and the search for beauty that unites us all. So grab your cup and your quilt and settle in for a soul-comforting read with Plain Wisdom.

My thoughts:

My first thoughts about the book were disappointing because it was not at all what I expected. I expected to be reading an Amish novel just from two different perspectives. Boy was I surprised when I started reading this book. However once I realized what type of book I was reading I really enjoyed seeing both points of view on a lot of different things.

I enjoyed sitting alone reading bits here and there in between doing things. It is amazingly a fast read because of the short chapters and the fact that you are always wanting to know what each of the Authors are thinking. There are so many quotes that I had to go back and highlight though out the book because I loved them so.

My suggestion, sit down with a friend and read aloud.

I was not paid for this review, I did however receive a copy of the book in return for the review from Blogging For Books. The opinions of this book are mine and mine alone.
