Running away to see Betty, her Amish pen pal, she encounters many people and overcomes many challenges.
This is a touching and witty tale of teenage girls, their problems and viewpoints and the cycles that the Divine Plan moves in.
The storyline is also extremely realistic. What would you do if you were in Kristi’s situation? A broken home is a toll on every child, teenager, and often adult children. And when they re-marry people that the child couldn’t stand, I think they all feel abandoned, just like Kristi.
Combine this with laughter, tears, love and fears, and you have one awesome, amazing book. I couldn’t believe how great a book this is.
While A Plain Wish is aimed at young adults, I’m 34, and enjoyed it immensely, as has everyone I’ve recommended this book to.
Kudos and thanks to Cyndi for creating one more “can’t put it down” book.
If you are a fan of Amish fiction like I am, you will enjoy this wonderful tale a tale of faith and restoration you will not want to put down.
Anxiously awaiting the second book in this series...
The character of Kirsti was conveyed well as was the customs and relationships within the close-knit Amish community.
I can't wait for the sequel.
So she takes off driving by herself and things happen along the way - almost funny while reading it but not so much if they happened to you.
She begins to enjoy living as the Amish do, even the early bedtime and early risings while she learns how to make bread, was clothes (without a washing machine), and drive a buggy. There are lots of jokes an laughs which makes this book so enjoyable.
- Cons - Peter, one of the Amish kids, cuts his leg really bad - the next chapter tells of the English girl then the the next begins talking about grief and a funeral - so I automatically thought Peter had died, but he didn't. There was nothing to let me think otherwise. - But I got over it by the 2nd-3rd page of this chapter.
-Cons - The story ends abruptly, not a good ending - as she and her penpal & her brother take off for TX where her grandmother is - but without sending a letter to find out if she is there or if it is ok to visit now.................... - So surprises are in store for them - BUT you will have to get the next book to find out.
A Plain Wish by Cyndi Lord is handled with great sensitivity. You can feel Kristi’s pain of the rejection of all four of her parents. You can feel the anticipation as she makes her way to Pennsylvania from Indiana to her pen-pals house and hopefully her new home. Ms. Lord has inserted humor throughout the book. She also describes the Amish life as well as the Amish home in great detail.
Cyndy Lord deftly handles the angst of an English girl among the Amish, and a teenager struggling to find her place in the world. Though one doesn't always agree with Kristi's choices, they are very realistic for someone without a whole lot of experience with the world. Though I dislikes endings that leave you in the middle of the story, and this book is obviously designed to lead into another, overall the story is satisfying and leaves a smile on your face.
