A search for peace in Amish country proves anything but simple for a woman on the run from life... and herself. On the rolling plains of Lancaster County, PA., Lillian Miller is searching for her grandparent’s house... and so much more. After years of neglect and abuse, she’s turning to a lifestyle of simplicity among the Amish to find herself. As she discards the distractions of her former life, she befriends the young boy working on her family’s farm and his attractive widowed father, Samuel Stoltzfus. Despite Lillian’s best efforts to the contrary, her feelings for Samuel—and his for her—deepen. Will Lillian find her faith in Plain living, or will she be forced to return to her former life?  Download and start listening now!

    " This book lacked research. It was not particularly interesting. I think the author could have done a better job of writing this story. "

    " I really wish you could do half stars. I enjoyed this quick read but found it preachy at time. I mean it did try to be but... "

    " This is the beginning of my Beth Wiseman addiction! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 1/20/2014

    " I am a person that loves Amish fiction and while "Plain Perfect" was enjoyable, a part of me couldn't really get into the story. I thought the characters were underdeveloped and that the story line was predictable. The Amish books by Marta Perry, Amy Clipston and Beverly Lewis are much more enjoyable and very well written. I still plan to read the rest of a "Daughter of Promise" series, but if you are someone who only reads a few books I wouldn't recommend this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea | 1/4/2014

    " This was a sweet book about faith and family. I loved it. A quick easy heart warming fun book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 1/2/2014

    " If you've read any of my previous book reviews, you know I'm a sucker for good character development, and boy does Plain Perfect ever have THAT! :) I loved watching Lillian grow from a worldly 'Englischer' into a young lady devoted to God and determined to live according to His plans for her. I also enjoyed getting to know the other characters in this novel and hope some of them will make appearances in the other books in this series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shari Turner | 1/2/2014

    " Since I have someone in my family who is searching for her birth mother this books was timely. I learned that the Amish have changed their views on some things that surprised me. This was my first ebook. "

    " I enjoyed this book very much. It was a very sweet love story. I wonder how accurate it is as far as the Amish community?? :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 stacie | 12/6/2013

    " woman with Amish roots goes back to her grandparents' to live. good story line but I felt like the main character acted a lot younger than her age (27) with no doubts about changing her life. That could have been expanded upon and would have made the book stronger. "

    " I really just got this book because it was super cheap. This is the first book I've read of Beth Wismen. But for sure I will be reading more of her books. This book was a page turner for me. I couldn't put it down after capter one. It's such a sweet romance. "
