Publisher's Description

Anna loves the grandfather who raised her, but his strict adherence to the Ordnung is scaring away any boy who might be interested in her—except newcomer Jacob.

In normal circumstances Anna Byler would have her choice of any of the young men in her Amish community. But because of the strict rules enforced by her grandfather, the bishop, the available suitors are afraid to court her. Then handsome Jacob Hostetler moves to Paradise and decides Anna is worth the challenge.

Anna sees that the bishop’s legalism is dividing the community and risking the lives of its members—but her grandfather doesn’t. When she is forced to deception in order to pursue her dream of marriage and family with Jacob, Anna feels her own faith slipping. If only she could get her grandmother to help her stand up to the bishop. But Mammi is keeping secrets of her own.

Anna wants to honor her grandparents, the two most important people in her life, but her heart is  divided by the rules that guide their little Amish community and the growing love she has for Jacob. How can she be true to both?

    Anna Byler's is raised by her grandparents. In her opinion they are the best grandparents ever. Although to the young men that would like to invite her to the singing are give her a ride in their buggy her grandfather is unapproachable on the subject. Anna is totally ignorant of the young men's problem with her grandfather. That is until she overhears them talking about this very thing. She gave them a good tongue lashing and informed them they were wrong. To her disappointment they were right. On top of this other people in their Amish community had problems with her grandfather being so strict when it came to the Old Order Ways of the Amish. You see her grandfather is the Bishop for their Amish Community.

    Anna even found out her grandmother was hiding things from her grandfather. So, why is he being so strict? Doesn't he know he is alienating himself from the community?

    When Jacob Hosetler moves to Paradise he is determined to change the Bishop's mind and court Anna. With Anna, her grandmother and Jacob taking a stand to change the Bishop's strict ways they find they may have gotten in deeper than they ever expected. The Bishop is determined to stand his ground.

    This was a fun read. So much love in this family but the author has managed to create in them a very dysfunctional family. She shows how seeds of deceit can tear not only a family apart but the whole community. A tender loving man yet hard as a rock when it came to Old Order Ways. The character of the grandmother was so sweet yet she had a compulsive disorder. The author has a wonderful and humorous imagination when it comes to creating her characters.

    I wonder if we can see any of ourselves in any of these characters. Like the seamstress that hoards fabric or the person that is obsessed with shoes. I must admit I do see myself in that I can not have enough books. So you leave know wiggle room when it comes to the rules of house or church?

    I gladly recommend this book.

    Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book from Booksneeze/Thomas Nelson for review. I was in no way compensated for this review. This review is my honest opinion.

    Beth Wiseman has written a beautiful story about forgiveness and change. Anna and Jacob are in love and long to court, but Anna's grandfather, the Bishop refuses. He forbids many things from the community and won't allow them to see Dr. Noah for medical care. Jacob's family is in turmoil and the grief his father feels is cutting him off from the ones who love and need him most.
    Then there is Lucy, the young woman with the Scarlet A, who longs for friendship and acceptance for her and her young son, Benjamin. Will she ever be accepted? Can she find forgiveness?
    How will Jacob and Anna ever find peace to date when her grandfather remains unmovable.
    You will find some delightful recipes from the story as a bonus to the incredible story.
    This is a 5 Star ***** piece of work.
    I received a pdf version of this book from booksneeze and the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

    Love This Story!

    Last night I finished 'Plain Peace' and here are 5 reasons why I personally enjoyed the story....
    1) This story teaches the Gospel of Forgiveness. As a Christian, I have been taught in my 31 years as a believer that forgiveness has to be a big part of our existence, for it is the core of our beliefs.
    2) It really does show that the Amish are just as human as Englischers, (Non-Amish.) People in 'Plain Peace' like John Hostetler, who struggled w/ tremendous guilt. And Marianne, who has a illness that needs daily attention and hides things from her husband.
    3) Humor. Beth never lets one of her novels go by without at least a little sense of humor. Ole Bishop Byler questioned at one point if sending stuff to Ebay to sell, meant sending stuff to the coast.
    4) The characters used in Beth's previous Daughters of the Promise books were well spread out in 'Plain Peace' and all of them acted their same wonderful selves.
    5) Prayer. So often the characters, from Lucy to Cora, expressed their dependence on the Lord, all prayer with an emphasis on healing and growing in their situation.

    Thank you Beth Wiseman for once again successfully touching my heart deeply with this very creative read!
