"A Plain Widow" by Diane Craver is a mystery and also a book about forgiveness and a second chance at love.
"A Plain Widow" by Diane Craver is the 2nd book in (The Bishop's Daughters) series, I think this book could be read as a standalone and the reader could enjoy and not feel like you were missing part of the story line but I recommend reading the first book in the series as well because things that happened in the book1 are mentioned briefly in "A Plain Widow"
This book was kinda of sad for me to read because of the death of Caleb. ( no this isn't a spoiler alert, read the description of the book. This book shows how the Amish and the English can be friends and still be true to their own beliefs.
I hadn't read any of this arthur's books before but now her other books are on my to be read list.
A Plain Widow" by Diane Craver is a 5 star read.
I was given a complimenty copy by Celebrate Lit. These opinions are my own.
This is a very good but also sad story that happens when people for some reason hold hard feeling an how something bad can happen.
I am going to say to all out there, you need read an find out what you would be missing if you don't read, also if you read book one about the baby being snatched you will enjoy this book just as much if not more.
Please make your own review on this book also asking everyone to read. Also if possible let the author know how much you like it and that you will let others know.
One of the firemen who came to the fire is a Amish man, Jonathan. He recently move to the community from another area and volunteered to help Molly's grandfather plant her crops. Thus, he and Molly talked a lot and became good friends.
Mourning the loss of her husband, Molly finds out that Caleb had lots of secrets. This is a very good story with some big surprises and as always, a happy ending.
Like the first book, I felt that there was much filler dialogue that was unnecessary. I had so much information thrown my way, I was overwhelmed. I feel like I missed out on the potential for a real thriller. I wanted to know who hated the Amish so much that they would harm a member of the community. I wanted to see more of the antagonist of the story. I wanted to see how desperate he was and what lengths he would go to, to inflict more damage. This character simply wasn’t developed and the loose ends were tied up too neatly.
Lastly, I feel the need to mention how shocked I was to see the use of foul language in this genre. I’m not a prude by any means but it’s just not typical. I wasn’t expecting it. I think a lot of readers of the Amish genre will be thrown off kilter by this. Now, this book isn’t filled with nasty language by any means. There’s the use of a certain four-letter word that starts with an s and it’s used twice on the same page. Still, it felt out-of-place for the book’s intended audience.
Overall, the idea and premise of this story is an interesting one. I would have liked to have seen it explored and developed more. I needed more action and less dialogue.
*Author has issued a revision to this ebook to remove the foul language mentioned in the review above.
A complimentary copy of this book was provided by Celebrate Lit. I was not required to write a positive review, and have not been compensated for this. All opinions are my own.
