Plain Proposal ~ Book Review

Product Description

Miriam secretly vows to follow Saul no matter what the future holds. She never thought that future might take them away from their Amish community. 

Miriam Raber could have her pick of any of the eligible bachelors in Lancaster County. But she only has eyes for one . . . Saul Fisher. He captured her heart years ago, and she's never looked back. Even when rumors circulate that Saul may leave their Amish community to pursue a once-in-a-lifetime apprenticeship, Miriam makes a bold assertion: she will stand by him, whether he stays or goes.

Saul Fisher has experienced an inordinate amount of loss in his short life. Raising his two brothers and caring for a grieving father who privately seeks solace in the comfort of his homemade wine, Saul has kept his father's drinking from the community. But if he leaves Lancaster, the burden of secrecy will be left to his young brothers. How does he balance this with the dream that burns bright within him?

As Miriam and Saul consider leaving their lives behind, God starts revealing things to Miriam that make her think twice about what it means to be a Daughter of the Promise, and what it means to make a home.

Experience this love story with a surprising resolution by one of the most popular voices in Amish fiction.

My thoughts

I loved this book. Every time I thought I knew what Miriam was thinking, I would be was off. The Raber's are such a very close knit family and I love they way that they are always there for each other and the way that they bring Shelby into their home and make her part of their family. Miriam and Shelby make some surprising decisions to me but all and all it turns out to all be okay in the end. I give this book five stars for sure.

I was not paid for this review, I did however receive a copy of the book for my Kindle from NetGalley. The opinions of this book are mine and mine alone.
