I love the way Kristi continues to show her innocence and lack of life experience as she seems to find her way into obstacles in her travels. This time I'm glad she has some people with her to help make decisions. I don't want to give away any spoilers but I'm happy to know the lady walking the dog is who I was hoping it would be. I hope we'll have another new book from Cyndi Lord to read soon.
Many things in this book made me think of my childhood, and Cyndi's dedication reminds me that I'm not alone when it comes to being a child with divorced parents fighting with each other.
I enjoyed reading the book with the Kindle app on my phone and am looking forward to more great books from Cyndi.
Your Michigan friend
Kristi reaches out to her pen pal, Becky, an Amish girl from Lancaster. She runs from home and stays with her family. In book two she is driving her new car, registered in her dad’s name, taking her friend Becky and her brother Jacob to visit her grandmother who now lives in Texas.
These two young people have never been outside an Amish community. All the gadgets we take for grant it are completely new and sometimes frightening. This story not only is a good read, but we learn about the Amish who most people know very little about. The Amish in general don’t believe in hitting or hugging, they should never be rude, a man shouldn’t do ‘women’s work’, they are hardworking, early risers, soft spoken and speak very directly.
Kristi is looking for love. She has found it in Becky’s family. She remembers how much she enjoyed being with her grandmother and was disappointed she had left Lancaster moving to Texas. Kristi wants to belong to a family who loves each other. Her divorced mom and dad had remarried giving Kristi no sense of belonging. Strong and spirited, not willing to settle for the choice her parents gave her, she seeks her grandmother who she remembers as loving.
I was intrigued what Kristi’s friends thought and reacted about certain events and was charmed by the way they spoke and the way Jacob took care of his younger sister Betty. I understood the author spent some time with the Amish to better understand their people and community.
Kristi Becker was a young girl with lots of anger issues and blamed the course of her life on her dad. Her dad had taken her home from her and wanted to separate her from her friends and grandmother. As a character, I had problems connecting with Kristi. She seemed to have two personalities, one she kept for her Amish friends and her grandmother and the other for her father or anyone who gets in her way for what she wants. However, that being said, with all her flaws, I see the hurt person behind all she does.
We briefly meet Kristi’s father who is a frustrated parent having reached the end of his rope. The author portrays his frustration and anger superbly as well as the overwhelming anger Kristi is going through. Her dialog was right on.
I first learned of Ms. Lord’s talent when I read her mystery, They Call Me Murdered. She is presently working on the second of that series, They Call Me Missing.
I was pleasantly surprised she had ‘tucked in’ Sandra Derringer, a private investigator, into The Plain Series, as neighbor to Becky’s grandmother. Ms. Lord writes quality stories. By the time I finished with book 2, I was very interested in going back to book 1 and experience all this teen-ager had. It’s not easy being a teen-ager. They sometimes lash out without thought, but not necessarily without cause. Book 3 releases winter 2015 titled A Plain Love.
I very much recommend this book for young adults and older readers who delight in reconnecting with the hardest time in a person’s life – being a teenager.
