Book Description:

Love Is Only A Letter Away

So what if Joann Yoder's Amish community deems her a spinster? She's content to stay single. In the meantime, she's working hard to finally buy her dream house. So it's problematic when she's fired from her job to make room for the owner's nephew, Roman Weaver. His blue eyes aside, she simply can't stand him! Good thing she has the secret letters she's been exchanging with a mystery man to keep her going. But who is writing her letters? And could she possibly fall for him in real life, too?

When her parents died, Joann fell under the care of her older brothers.  They felt she would be best if she spent time at each of the homes.  So, as she cycled between her brothers' homes, Joann dreamed her own dreams: home ownership and fishing.  She is content with staying single as long as she has her job at the Amish publisher and her new fishing pole.  To top it off, she feels inferior to the other unmarried women; she describes herself as plain.  Yet, she is far from it!

Patricia Davids has written a wonderful Amish story which gives the reader an insight into their lives.  The Amish feel family is a priority and look after the older generation as well as unmarried sisters.  From a modern perspective, I believe Joann should have had more of a say about the direction of her life.  I enjoy books which stretch my perceptions of other cultures, religions, etc.  In a way, I am jealous of the Amish's simple life.  How many times do we desire to get completely unplugged to simplify our lives?

My Rating:  4 out of 5 stars

I received a complimentary e-copy of Plain Admirer from NetGalley and Love Inspired for my honest review.
