Plain Pursuit

I have to start by saying I just love Amish fiction; they are  good wholesome stories that are just a delight to read - perfect when you just want to escape the troubles of life and our town has had a few too many of those in the last week.
Carley Marek has been told to take a month long vacation from work. It's not a choice; she can take the suggestion or be without work as a journalist. Carley decides to use the month to visit her friend Lillian who married into the Amish culture, community and lifestyle; while there she plans to write an article about the Amish.
As in most Amish fiction, there is a conflict between the Amish community and the outside world. In Plain Pursuit, it comes in the form of Lillian's brother-in-law that has been shunned by the community but now wants to be a part of his family's life even if just in a tangential manner. In addition, there are Carley's inner conflicts - dealing with the death of her mother, the loss of her fiance and other issues that you'll have to read to find out about. And not surprising, there is a love story - sweet, innocent and beautiful; the way love should be.
If you want a good love story, enjoy Amish fiction and want to escape from the realities of life - then Plain Pursuit is the book for you.
