Miriam secretly vows to follow Saul no matter what the future holds. She never thought that future might take them away from their Amish community.
Miriam Raber could have her pick of any of the eligible bachelors in Lancaster County. But she only has eyes for one . . . Saul Fisher. He captured her heart years ago, and she's never looked back. Even when rumors circulate that Saul may leave their Amish community to pursue a once-in-a-lifetime apprenticeship, Miriam makes a bold assertion: she will stand by him, whether he stays or goes.
Saul Fisher has experienced an inordinate amount of loss in his short life. Raising his two brothers and caring for a grieving father who privately seeks solace in the comfort of his homemade wine, Saul has kept his father's drinking from the community. But if he leaves Lancaster, the burden of secrecy will be left to his young brothers. How does he balance this with the dream that burns bright within him?
As Miriam and Saul consider leaving their lives behind, God starts revealing things to Miriam that make her think twice about what it means to be a Daughter of the Promise, and what it means to make a home.
Experience this love story with a surprising resolution by one of the most popular voices in Amish fiction.

Even though this is the Fifth book in The Daughters of the Promise series reader don't have to read the first Four books to understand this story,although this is such a good book it makes you want to read the entire series
Miss Wiseman is one of my favorite authors in this genre if you never read an Amish book you won't go wrong reading one of her stories.

KimberlyAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Plain ProposalMay 19, 2011KimberlyAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Plain Proposal is the 5th book in the Daughters of the Promise series, and I enjoyed it as much as the earlier books. Some of the characters were surprising, though: Miriam & Saul, an Amish couple considering leaving their community; Shelby, an Englischer coveting the Amish life; and Ivan, a shunned Amishman living with his English mistress. This eclectic mix of characters and plot twists which didn't go the way I expected, kept me up reading well into the wee hours of the morning over several nights. My only criticism is that everything wrapped up very neatly and very quickly at the end of the book, almost too perfectly to be believable. It also sounded like the end to the series, but I am hoping there will be more books in the Daughters of the Promise series, and that Beth just doesn't just switch over to the Land of Canaan series.
With thanks to NetGalley and Thomas Nelson, for my free review copy.
