Plain Pursuit by Beth Wiseman
What got me was how Beth Wiseman drew me in. I was completely absorbed by the book until I turned the last page! There were many ups and downs that I didn’t see coming which intrigued me and had me turning the pages with expectation.
I found some of the thoughts and language used for the men a little unrealistic, although I have never met an Amish man so I could be very wrong in thinking that.
There is a thread in the book about a letter that Dr Noah sent to his brother. This thread was beautifully woven in and out of the story line and only revealed at the end with great effect.
This book has a great message about simplifying things a little and following your heart. A good romance novel that isn't too sappy.
This book was provided for me to read (free) and review by Thomas Nelson Publishers through BookSneeze
You may have noticed I have a donation box on the left hand side. On the 17th of April the kids and I will be walking 5 kilometres to raise money for Teen Challenge. The See Her Live Free program is building a home to house young women suffering from life altering problems. It’s a place where they can go to get back on their feet – there is no home like this in Queensland. Please sponsor me… I’ll love you forever if you do!!!!
