http://booksneeze.com/art/_140_245_Book.132.cover.jpgI don't usually read Christian romance novels, but I decided to give *Plain Pursuit by Beth Wiseman a try. This story is about a woman, Carley, who is forced to take a break from her job and life and hurts in Houston and chooses to spend some time with her friend who has married into an Amish family. I think the fact that it is set in the Pennsylvania Amish country is what intrigued me about this book. I enjoyed getting a closer look at and understanding of the Amish culture, and I can see why Carley became drawn to this way of life.

The story drew me in pretty quickly, and I found the book to be an easy and enjoyable read. Mrs. Wiseman's descriptions of her characters and settings make the images easy to imagine. Although I found the plot to be somewhat predictable, I didn't feel disappointed by this. The love story is sweet, and the Amish way of living in community is inspiring.
