Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Beth Wiseman has done it again! I've read and loved the first two books in this series and this book was no different. Beth always keeps the plot in motion, creating a page turner. I love how characters from the first two books are revisited in this book. There was only one scenario in the entire book that I found to be totally cheesy and didn't enjoy. It was when Lizzy went to help Jonas when he fell. Other than that, I enjoyed the book very much. The book is a work of fiction and I enjoyed it as such.

As with the other books in this series, the book contains a helpful Pennsylvania Dutch glossary at the beginning, as well as a reading guide and Amish recipes at the end of the book.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
"Plain Promise" is the third book in Beth Wiseman's "Daughters of the Promise" Amish series. I have read the prior two books in the series, but this could be read as a stand alone book.

Although there were portions of the book I liked, it is my least favorite so far in this series. The story of the friendship between the young widow Sadie and outsider Kade is sweet, but not believable. I did enjoy seeing how Sadie and the rest of the Amish community related to Kade's autistic son Tyler. These were some of the best parts of the story.

Since Kade is not Amish, he questions Sadie about some of the Amish practices that are confusing to him. Sadie seems to agree with some of the opinions expressed by Kade, but she doesn't explain her beliefs wholeheartedly, but then these doubts are not addressed again which is disappointing. In addition, I found the side story of the romance between Jonas and Lizzie to be distracting from the main story and I found myself skimming through those pages.

Overall, I found the book to be okay, but not great. The ending is upbeat even though I didn't think it was realistic. Readers that are able to suspend disbelief may enjoy the book more than I did.

I do enjoy this genre of fiction. I have read other authors who write inspirational novels that are set in and around Lancaster, PA and involve the Amish community. I had hoped that this read would be as enjoyable as those. Unfortunately it was not. The writing tends to be awkward, not free flowing, which stunts the experience for the reader. The plot is generally predictable except in cases where twists are forced. I got that chalkboard feeling that comes from ridiculous things happening in the story just to make it less predictable. The inspirational or possibly Christian elements in the story are odd and seem to come out as a 'feeling' the main character has that things should be one way or another.
That being said, this is certainly not the most poorly written book I have ever read. I was able to read the whole thing and it was somewhat enjoyable. . . just left a lot to be desired. I would not pay money for the experience though.

Characters are typical for romance conventions in that they meet, have basic misunderstanding and immediate hostility that gradually grows to irresistible passion that results in massive and improbable life changes. Only the setting is different. The setting is very interesting, the characters an plot are not.

Sarah is a young widow who has an Amish store with other Amish women helping her run it. She also rents out a cottage on the property. Both she and Kane, the Englisher are seeking what their path in life should be. Many interesting surprises!

This review is from: Plain Paradise (A Daughters of the Promise Novel) (Paperback)
This book is so bad I don't know where to begin, so let me begin by saying that this book is an insult to anyone who has ever loved an autistic child. I seriously regret having to say that because, on so many levels it is obvious that the author is either very close to an autistic child or has done her research well. However, I am a nurse and I have a (severely) autistic grandchild very similar to Tyler so I know a few things about this subject. On the good side Ms. Wiseman has very accurately portrayed a child with Tyler's level of autism which is very similar to my grandson. Her descriptions of his behaviors and reactions are right on and I had to laugh about the box of letters. When he was about 3, my grandson removed the plastic letters from my refrigerator and was never without them for many years, and just about everything else is presented with great accuracy and sensitivity. However, I have two really serious problems with her depictions of Tyler. First, Tyler NEVER, EVER said he "loves" anyone and meant it in the way she would have us believe. Children with Tyler's level of autism are simply incapable of experiencing love as we do and they certainly DO NOT express feeling love. To have him doing so is so horribly inaccurate and just plain wrong! And, because autistic children tend to be narcissistic and live in their own worlds there is just NO WAY Tyler would have observed that "Val loves Mommy", let alone verbalize it. He is totally incapable of interpreting anything he might have seen going on between Mommy and Val.
