Anna loves the grandfather who raised her, but his strict adherence to the Ordnung is scaring away any boy who might be interested in her—except newcomer Jacob.

Under normal circumstances Anna Byler would have her choice of any of the young men in her Amish community. But because of the strict rules enforced by her grandfather, the bishop, the available suitors are afraid to court her. Then handsome Jacob Hostetler moves to Paradise and decides Anna is worth the challenge.

Anna sees that the bishop’s legalism is dividing the community and even risking the lives of its members—but her grandfather doesn’t. When she is forced to deception in order to pursue her dream of marriage and family with Jacob, Anna feels her own faith slipping. If only she could get her grandmother to help her stand up to the bishop. ButMammi is keeping secrets of her own.

Anna wants to honor her grandparents, the two most important people in her life, but her heart is divided by the rules that guide their little Amish community and the growing love she has for Jacob. How can she be true to both?

“Plain Peace” by Beth Wiseman is one book in The Daughters of Promise Series. I have read novels by Beth Wiseman before and always loved them. This one was no different.

The book is the story of four women, three Amish and one Englisch. All four women are facing problems within themselves either by tragedy, marital, non-acceptance, or love. The road by which each finds peace is varied, but also connected with each other. This was not just a book about the Amish and their beliefs, although that played a part in each case. I found that this book brought to light that religious laws cannot always be so strict. Care must be taken to apply church law to each individual case. It was interesting to see how each woman found the solution to her problems. I would recommend this book and would like to read each one in the series.

I received a free copy of this book in return for my honest review from Thomas Nelson Inc. and
