Plain Pursuit by Beth Wiseman


About the Book:
Carley Marek experiences culture shock when she visits her friend Lillian's family on their farm deep in Amish country. She'll get an article out of the visit--and maybe some of Lillian's newfound peace will somehow rub off on her.


Just when Carley is getting used to the quiet nature of the Plain community, Lillian and Samuel's son falls ill. But the local doctor who can offer the most help has been shunned by the community and forbidden to intervene.


As David's condition deteriorates, Dr. Noah determines to do whatever it takes to save the boy's life. Carley is caught in the middle--drawn to Noah, wanting to be helpful in the crisis--and confused by all their talk about a God she neither knows nor trusts.


Carley must decide what in life is worth pursuing . .


and what to do when she's pursued by a love she never expected.
My Review:
This is the second book in the Daughters of Promise series. I liked the first book Plain Perfect but I loved this book Plain Pursuit. It can stand on its own fine. Carley Marek is forced by her work to take a month off because they do think she is recovered from the car accident and her mothers death. She is a newspaper writer. She decides to go visit her friend Lillian in Amish Country. Lillian is from Texas the way Carely is and they were good friends. Carely envys the peace her friend Lillian has now. Lillian's husband Samuel has a brother that he has not told her about. His name is Dr. Noah. They meet when their early teenage son falls ill and they have to take him to the ER. Carley and Dr. Noah feel an instant conection. Dr. Noah has been shunned from the Amish community for leaving after his baptism to become a Doctor. Samuel does not want him treating his son or being around his family.
This is a well written story with interesting characters and plot. I love the romance between Carely and Dr. Noah. I am not a fan of all Amish books but I am a fan of this series. I cannot wait to read book three in this series. I highly recommend this book. :)
