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.
When Worlds Collide
Plain Fame by Sarah Price is a contemporary Amish romance which I really enjoyed. It kicks off a new series which promises to be a fantastic read.
Plain Fame explores what happens when the Amish and Englisch worlds collide. The contrasts are huge. The simple life is attractive but so are the modern gadgets. Which world will exert the greatest pull?
The novel reveals the true price of fame. Fame brings recognition, money and manipulation. It does not bring happiness nor alleviate loneliness. Fame isolates. “He was tired of false friends and faceless lovers.” Everyone wants a piece of the famous. It is tiring and debilitating always presenting the face the world wants to see, never being able to be truly yourself. “He was living a lie and it was exhausting him.”
