Amanda’s husband, Cuban pop star Alejandro, believed he was doing right by his wife when he left her on her parents’ farm in the familiar shelter of Lancaster’s Amish community. Amanda, however, has other ideas. Unwilling to sit idly by and hide from the paparazzi, she follows her husband to Europe for the start of his world tour to find out if their marriage can be saved once and for all.
When the two reunite, it’s plain to see that their love is stronger than their differences. But as they travel together, Amanda is surprised to discover that her own fame is beginning to match her husband’s. Now she must struggle to bridge her Amish upbringing and a new, unasked-for role in the public eye. As other unexpected tensions challenge their bond, can Amanda and Alejandro keep their promises and make space for her faith, his fame, and a growing love?

pam5 Stars Out Of 5Plain ChoiceApril 6, 2016pamQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Plain Choice is book 5 in the Plain Fame series written by Sarah Price. As with the previous books Sarah captured my interest immediately. I was anxious to read this book to continue the love story between Amanda and Alejandro.
With the difference in their level of faith it was good to see each one of them give to each other to encourage them to grow. Alejandro needed to figure out what was most important to him as well Amanda needed to figure out if her Amish background was more important. The struggles they each went thru led them down a very rocky road. What will each of them choose? Will Alejandro find a relationship with his 5 year old daughter? There is alot of romance in this story but is love enough to overcome their differences?
I did not receive a complimentary copy of this book! I offer my honest review because of the love of this series. I have rated this book with 5 stars for a well written book. I will be anxious to see what Sarah's next book will be.
I also rated this book with 5 stars for expectation, quality, and value!

This is the end of the series chronicling the lives and love of Alejandro and Amanda!! I want to know more....I want to see what happens next for two characters that I have fallen in love with! Alejandro and Amanda have a choice to make....do they save their marriage or end it? Do they continue to travel together as Alejandro performs around the world? Do Amanda and Isadora stay on the family's Amish farm and let Alejandro go his separate way? Do Amanda and Isadora follow along with Alejandro and live a life-on-the-road? Does Alejandro give up the music he loves and live the Amish life with Amanda and Isadora and Amanda's family? So many choices.....so many heart-wrenching decisions to make. Amanda tries to salvage their marriage by leaving Isadora with her family and flying to meet Alejandro and becoming an active part of his entertainment world. One thing is clear, no matter what decision they come to, Amanda and Alejandro love each other deeply and they both want the best for each other and Isadora.
I feel compelled to add something here; I read some very negative reviews that were disgusted that the Amish series deviated so much from the norm. This is a work of fiction and therefore does not have to necessarily be entirely realistic. I appreciate the fact that Sarah Price had the courage to write a very different series of Amish fiction. I read a great number of Amish fiction novels and it gets boring and predictable when they are all the same. This series is a breath of fresh air in the Amish fiction genre.
I rated this book 5 stars and am deeply saddened for Amanda and Alejandro's journey to end. I want more of this delightful, unlikely couple.
I received an ebook of this novel from netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
sgreene015 Stars Out Of 5What will the choice be?March 1, 2016sgreene01Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Sarah Price brings us another great installment in the Plain Fame series.
I have read all of the books in this series. In this fifth book of the series, we once again meet up with our friends, Amanda and her singing star husband, Alejandro.
To Amandas dismay, Alejandro has left her and his daughter, Isadora, at Amandas parents farm in Pennsylvania as he goes off to do a long European tour.
Alejandro feels Amanda and his daughter are much better off to stay in Amandas Amish surroundings, rather than tour around the world. Amanda, on the other hand, wonders why the man she loves and whom she thought loved her dearly, would leave her.
Will they reunite? Is their love strong enough to withstand this separation and all the media circus that surrounds it? Will Amanda be able to handle the fame that is beginning to be directed toward her? How will she mesh her marriage, motherhood, and now her own fame with her Amish upbringing? Will love win in this relationship?
I highly recommend this book to anyone who has read previous books in this series. Even if you haven't read the series, you would be able to enjoy this book as a stand alone book.
I hope we will be gifted with more books in this series to see how fame affects this sweet familys future.
I was given this book by Waterfall Press for my honest review.
MadeoverBedford,TexasAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Plain Change--Sarah PriceFebruary 29, 2016MadeoverBedford,TexasAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This one was Plain sweet. A true Cinderella story.
The story of an Amish girl that meets a famous entertainer.
She is sweet and innocent.
He is just plain nice.
In book two of this series (I missed book 1 unfortunately)
Amanda has joined Alejandro on tour. Which is a bit of a surprise at least to me. The reader is swept into to the fast paced world of
Alejandro the super star through the eyes of the sweet and innocent
The characters are complex and well developed. The story line is a surprise at least this installment was for me. I'm curious how Ms. Price will weave the rest of the story of Amanda and Alejandro.
It's started of so sweet. Will it stay sweet?
I look forward to reading not only the rest of the series but going back and reading book one.
This was a fast read for me. I couldn't put it down.
I would definitely recommend this book to all readers.
I will add a caution for possibly younger impressionable readers.
The idea of the Amish character leaving her home and lifestyle might be a little bit of a challenge for teenage readers.
This is the first book that I've read on my phone. Although I'm not a total convert I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and look forward to reading more books.
