Plain Promise by Beth Wiseman is a story of grief, confusion, hope, restoration and contentment set in the middle of Amish Country in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
Sadie Fisher is a young Amish widow who after 4 yrs is still grieving her dead husband… she’s grieving the life they would have had and the children they didn’t have. For the last two years, Sadie has been corresponding with Milo, an Amish man from Texas…. Is there hope for that family she missed out on with Ben?
Kade Saunders is a rich and famous Englischer who is confused about what’s missing or wrong in his life. He has everything money can buy, but still doesn’t have peace. Monica, his estranged wife, shows up out of the blue to say she is leaving their son, Tyler, with him and asking him to sign divorce papers so she can move on with her life.
Is there hope for Sadie? Will she have the family that she desires, or will she always be alone? Can Kade find the peace and contentment that he feels in the Amish Community? Can he be restored to Tyler and God?

I enjoyed this book about the Amish life.. it left me wanting to go back and read the first two in the series. Beth has done a wodnerful job with the characters' inner thoughts, feelings and struggles-- she made them REAL!!
