Plain Promise by Beth Wiseman
Plain Promise is a story of a young Amish widow named Sadie who is trying to rebuild her life after the sudden death of her husband. She has a suitor she has yet to meet face to face. They court each other through letters and Sadie hopes to marry him one day. She spends her days working her small farm and running her shop hoping for the day they will wed. Never seeing how the best laid plans can go astray.
The author took her time and didn’t take the straight road to romance. I must admit I felt the sting and disappointment of her lead character Sadie when all her hopes for the future seemed to be dashed yet again. Sadie's strong commitment to her faith kept her grounded as she cried out to know the will of God.
