Plain Paradise by Beth Wiseman
Josie knows that the clock is ticking...and not just the one she wears on her wrist. She is running out of time and yet she still has not reconnected with her biological daughter, Linda. One could reason that since Josie is considered Englisch to the Amish society, it makes perfect sense that she has never met Linda. Even so, Josie is determined to at least introduce herself to Linda--while she still can.
Amish fiction is prevalent in today's book stores, however Beth Wiseman has done an admirable job of creating a believable and interesting plot-line. Her characters are deep and well-created on many different levels. I also appreciate that Beth is very clear on her distinctions between characters. This title is comprised of many vibrant characters, however I was not at all confused with deciphering which character was which. They were adequately and neatly described. (I like it when I can easily understand the relationships between characters.)
This well-written book is an enjoyable read. It is good, clean, interesting fiction and I have to say it was nice to sit back and read a book that had a good moral and didn't necessarily make me search my soul. This book gets 3 stars in my book.
