Plain Promise by Beth Wiseman

Sadie Fisher is a young, attractive, Amish woman who loves many things: her God, her home, her friends, and her way of life. Still, she struggles with loneliness and her desire to have a family. When faced with the choice of marrying a good, Amish man, or giving up her hope of marriage because of the love she has for an Englischer, who she can never marry, she finds that her choice is not merely about marriage, but about her trust in the loving God she has always worshipped.

This was my first time reading a book with an Amish setting. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. It was well-written, the plot moved along at the perfect pace, and the characters engaged me. Sadie, in particular, was an encouragement to me because I enjoy reading about women who are strong in their faith. Her life does not always turn out the way she hopes for, but though all the doubts and struggles, she clings to her God and grows closer to him.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for an inspirational, sweet, entertaining romance story.
