Although Beth Wiseman seems familiar with the ways of the Amish and portrays the Plain lifestyle accurately, the characters’ dialect is not extremely natural or convincing. In addition, the book portrays the rumschpringe as a harmless tradition and fails to openly condemn the rebellious “running-around period.” Everything considered, Plain Paradise is an endearing tale full of realistic characters and encouraging messages.
I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
