Love And Strength
Plain Return by Sarah Price is a wonderful Amish romance. It is the fourth book in the Plain Fame series but can be read as a stand-alone.
I really loved catching up with familiar characters. Once again Sarah Price’s comprehensive descriptions mean the reader really ‘experiences’ the landscapes.
God is at the heart of the novel. Faith and trust in His plans are at the forefront. We have to trust that He knows what He’s doing especially when we cannot see the way.
Life needs to be done in partnership with God. Building a relationship with Him is important, as is talking to Him in prayer.
The novel shows the conflict between the world and the Amish way. “She straddled the fence between plain and worldly.” The Amish way brings peace and contentment. The world is seen to be manipulative, self seeking and lacking in morals. The world seeks to corrupt the Amish way of thinking. The reader witnesses the conflict and hopes for a peaceful solution.
Family and stability are important. Love binds us together. Children are a gift from God. They need love and peace and kindness to blossom. Every child is planned by God even if not by people.
I really enjoyed Plain Return. The novel was warm and welcoming. This is a cracking series.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
