Annie’s quest for simplicity is about to get complicated. Nearly a year after leaving her successful but unsatisfying high-tech life, she wonders if she can truly succeed at being Amish.

Her parents seem determined to sabotage her efforts, and Rufus Beiler, an Amish carpenter who captured her heart, leaves room for doubt about their future. But when an explosion brings Annie under suspicion, can she clear her name and bring the future into plain view?

Editorial Reviews

IN PLAIN VIEW by Olivia Newport is an amazing inspirational Amish fiction/romance set in Westcliffe,Colorado. ...Ms. Newport writes a story that will hold the reader in awe. A heart-wrenching,touching,and tender story where a simple life may not be so simple after all. Well played,Olivia! A must read and one I would recommend if you enjoy Amish people,romance with a bit of history.

In Plain View, book 2 of Olivia Newport's Valley of Choice series, offers a full cast of engaging characters - juxtaposed at two different points in history - that will keep readers turning page after page in anticipation of Annie's choice.

Simply stated, Olivia Newport is one of the truly gifted of today's Christian fiction authors. "In Plain View" is a smoothly engaging read featuring carefully crafted and memorable characters deftly woven into a story that grasps the readers total attention from first page to last.

I was anticipating this book because the previous one in the series left me wanting more. This book did not disappoint. I can relate to Annie and often find myself looking for the simple things in life. This was a very interesting book that captured me from the beginning. Can't wait to read more of the story in book 3!

    I absolutely loved the first book in this series, Accidently Amish. I have not finished In Plain View yet, however I am almost hoping for a happy ending but that Annie goes back to her English life, which at this time I do not know. The story just seems a bit unrealalistic that someone would make the choice she seems to be making. I would like to see someone, in a story line, go from English to trying to become Amish, and then cannot make the grade and reverts back to their English life. Just seems like that story line would be more as real life would be. I did enjoy and am enjoying the first and this second book and I have not started the third one in that series . I would reccomment the books however. I try to place myself in Annies position and what I would do.

    This review was written for In Plain View - eBook.
    In the second book of the series, Annaliese Freisen is continuing her exploration of the Amish lifestyle by basically "living plain." It's natural that she would face temptations to use technology, and feel pride, and she does. It's natural that her parents would have trouble coming to terms with the choices their daughter is making, and they do. It's natural that Rufus, the ever patient Amish man-of-her-dreams, wants her to make her own decision and not just do it for him, so, much to the reader's frustration at times, he hangs back.

    I didn't think this book was as good as the first , but it is a genuine sequel, not just set in the same town, but about different people, like many series are, so that excuses it for being a little slow. Interspersed with the modern story are chapters concerning descendants of the original Amish pioneers. I found these a little hard to follow, with so many names in two distinct branches of the family.

    None-the-less, I did enjoy the continuing story of Annie and Rufus, and look forward to reading the concluding episode.

    Olivia Newport melds the past and the future...linking the lives of the ancestors to the hope of the future generations. It does not happen without considerable pain and heartache. Amish shun their people if they leave after baptism so the forgiveness and reconciliation do not always take a simple course. The process seems harsh to those of us who look on from the outside world, and even to many among the Amish themselves.

    Add war to the mix and the Amish believe in nonviolent resistance. What do you do with the Amish who choose to fight for the freedom of America from the British? What do family members say when their own family members seem to betray their values and beliefs? Can they reconcile? Can the depression and pain from wartime activities ever allow Nathaniel and Magdalena to find the love they long for?

    I enjoyed this book immensely but I did get confused at times as the author switched back and forth between time periods and characters. I read the prequel to this book and that helped me somewhat but it took me reading through half of the book to truly feel I had a clear handle on who was who and where the story line was taking place at the time. This is a story full of hope, even though it is laced with heartache and sorrow....just like real life.

    I received a free pdf copy of this book from netgalley in exchange for my honest review.

    In Plain View by Olivia Newport is the second book in the Valley of Choice series. This is a gem of a book. It is actually two storylines in one. The main story takes place in modern times in an Amish community. Annie is a woman trying to live a simple life. She used to live a fast-paced, modern, technologically ridden existence. Now she strives for demut, or humility, as she tries to decide if the Amish life is for her. She is learning more about God and plain living, while her love for a certain Amish man, Rufus, grows stronger every day.

    The secondary storyline is based in the time of the American Revolution and involves the ancestors of the modern story's characters. This story revolves around Jacob and Katie and their growing family, as well as Magdalena and her relationship with Nathaniel.

    Both of these stories within one book captured my attention and they were both so well developed and well written. I was able to follow everything in this book without needing to read the first one. It can definitely stand alone. Now I am looking forward to reading the third book in the series when it is available.

    I received this book for free from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review, which I have given.

    I have some mixed thoughts about this book. I loved every part of the book that was about Rufus and Annie but the parts that were about the ancestors from way back was a bit confusing to keep track of some times. It was interesting because I feel that it is all going to come together in the end but with some of the names being handed down it did get a bit confusing and hard to keep track of especially when it jumped forward in years.

    Annie was trying so hard to become the Amish person that she wanted to become and her parents seem to be trying so hard to fight that all the while just the opposite seemed to be happening to Ruth. She still wanted the plain life but wanted to get her college education while Annie just wanted to leave her English life behind and start living a plain life with Rufus. And she wanted that plain life whether she lived it with Rufus or not and she needed for her parents to learn to believe that.

    All of Rufus's family has welcomed Annie into their family with open arms, now if she could just get Rufus to see how much she really loved him or would he really be better with a pure Amish woman? Is Annie better to stay and get and start the baptism classes or return to the English life that she once new? So much is going through Annie's mind and she is always wondering if Rufus is in love with her or not.

    Even though I don't give this book 4 or 5 stars, I am definitely looking forward to reading the next book in this series called, Taken For English.
