Publisher Description

Two friends from different worlds—one Old Order Amish, one Englischer—share the truths that bring them together.   Best-selling novelist Cindy Woodsmall might seem to have little in common with Miriam Flaud, a woman immersed in the culture of Old Order Amish. But with nine children and almost 60 years of marriage between them, Cindy and Miriam both have found the secrets to facing life with strength and grace. Whether enduring financial setbacks, celebrating new babies and times of prosperity, grieving the crushing losses in the deaths of family and friends, or facing disappointments with their respective communities—through it all they find guidance for each day by looking to God.    With poignant recollections, unexpected insights, and humorous tales, the two women welcome you into their unique friendship. You’ll also gain a rare glimpse into the traditions and ways of the Amish as Miriam recalls special occasions and shares family recipes throughout the book.   Plain Wisdom is a heartwarming celebration of God, womanhood, and the search for beauty that unites us all. So grab your cup and your quilt and settle in for a soul-comforting read with Plain Wisdom.

    " I felt like these essays were a little too disjointed. I would have enjoyed more about the friendship between the women and less separate thoughts that were loosely bound together. Perhaps my expectations were too high, but I was disappointed. "

    " I have only read part of it but it is very interesting to hear the stories and see how similar all our lives really are. Thank you Cindy. You are a great author. I cant wait for your next book. I have ready all your books. Your books are the reason I am so hooked on Amish Fiction. It is how we should all be living. I wish I was born into the Amish world. Changing to Amish now would be hard.
