BookSneeze Book Review - Plain Paradise

(This is copied from my old blog for posterity.)

I've recently had the opportunity to read a book that I've really enjoyed. The title is Plain Paradise by Beth Wiseman.

This is a fiction book about the Amish. The heroine in the story finds out that she's been adopted by her Amish family after an English woman she doesn't know comes knocking on their door. Her birth mother has only a short time to live, so she wants to know the daughter she'd given away when she was two weeks old. Meanwhile, the Amish folks who'd raised this young lady struggle with fear that the English woman will take away their daughter.
The entire story kept me wondering how the end would turn out. It was a great story, drew me to tears a few times. The characters seemed very real. I hope to find the rest of Beth Wiseman's books--I'm hooked now!
Basically, here's the run-down of what I think of the book:
Ease of reading ................ 5/5
Supporting Details ............. 5/5
Sufficient Length .............. 5/5
Ability to hold my interest ... 5/5
Overall Impression ............. 5/5
