A Plain & Simple Heart

A Plain & Simple Heart
Lori Copeland
Virginia Smith

Rebecca thinks she's in love. She hasn't seen her true love in four years, but that isn't stopping her from going to find him. There are several problems with this scenario though. Rebecca is Amish and her "boyfriend" is not. Rebecca has never traveled before and is determinded to find him alone.
Once she reaches the small town where Jesse, the love of her life, was last seen she begins to get in trouble. Nothing can prepare her for life outside of the Amish community, but God is leading her the entire time.

I really enjoyed this story. The characters were funny and engaging and it was nice to have a twist to the typical Amish stories. A small spoiler alert - All of the Amish stories I've read so far have a character that is questioning their beliefs, but ends up staying Amish/Mennonite. So it was nice to see a couple of the characters make the decision that they could still be a Christian and not be Amish. It was a very refreshing change for me.

I received this book free of charge from Goodreads in exchange for my honest review.
