Plain Admirer by Patricia Davids

My book review today in on the Love Inspired, Plain Admirer. It's a part of the Brides of Amish Country Series. I really enjoy books about the Amish and Patricia's are some of the best. This one is no exception. I love the concept of a simpler life, although it would definitely be a lot more work and I'm not able to go along with all their beliefs. This book is well written and you will love the characters, well maybe not her brother so much.

Joann Yoder is a spinster in her Amish Community. Her parents have passed a way and her brothers have taken over her care. She spends three months with each one and then moves on to the next. She dreams of having a home of her own and has almost made that possible when her boss calls her in and tells her she fired but must train his nephew to replace her. Her world has shattered.

Roman Weaver was in a terrifying accident where he lost the use of his left arm. Unable to work in his family's saw mill, he takes a job in his uncles printing shop. The job is totally foreign to him so he must train with Joann. He takes real delight in irritating her and watching her eyes turn to flames. How could he ever have thought that she was plain? The pressure at work is too much for him so he goes to the lake to see if he can still fish and find peace but what he finds is a beautiful new fishing pole. He leaves the pole with a note for the fisherman that lost it.

Joann is drawn to this man she must teach but is discouraged by losing everything she held dear. When she goes fishing with her brothers family he accuses her of vanity because she had bought a new rod and reel. He throws it into the lake. Broken hearted Joann returns a couple days later and finds not only her pole but a note. She answers the note and becomes involved in a secret pen pal relationship that brings her peace and joy.

A great story of devotion and restoration. God has a plan for all of us if we just seek him. I know you will enjoy this book. You may find it on Amazon. God bless you all.
