Plain Paradise by Beth Wiseman

I received this book Plain Paradise from booksneeze.com to review. This review is based on my opinions of the book and its author. This book is the 4th book in  The Daughters of the Promise Novels. This book follows along Linda Huyard, a 17 yr old Amish girl who was adopted at 2 weeks old. Her birth mother was 17 yrs old when she had an encounter with a teacher. Her parents forced the adoption. Linda has no idea she was adopted. One day her birthmother, Josie, shows up wanting to meet her and get to know her. Josie has cancer and is terminal. Linda's parents have to tell her and her brothers she was adopted. This book incorporates new and old characters from other books in this series. We watch Linda go through her Rumspringa and follow into her faith. We see Josie become a believer and have a miracle happen in her life. The book shows all the emotions that go with being adopted and the emotions all involved have but they continue to rely on Faith in God and it sees them all through. The book is well written and was just a wonderful story of lost faith being found and new bonds being formed. I recommend this book highly. Beth Wiseman is an awesome author.
