A Plain and Simple Heart

A Plain and Simple Heart
Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith

My Thoughts:
This is a fun, frolicking book that is so different from any traditional Amish book I've ever read. the characters are well crafted and the writing is so smooth that it is easy to forget you are reading. I love the Old West aspects of this book. The things this heroine gets into are just so fun!

Many times I laughed aloud and cheered for the characters. I just loved this book just as much as the first in the series and can't wait for the sequel. However, you don't have to read the first book before you pick this one up -- but you'll want to because it was fabulous, too!

About the Book:
Sixteen-year-old Rebecca Switzer leaves the Amish community of Apple Grove, Kansas, to follow her heart. In 1884, the grand old days of the great cattle drives are rapidly drawing to a close, and the cowboy she fell in love with years before has fallen into obscurity. Her desire is plain and simple – she wants to find Jesse and convince him to return with her to Apple Grove. Rebecca announces to her horrified family that she will spend her rumspringa searching for Jesse. When she falls in with the outspoken members of the Kansas women’s temperance movement, her journey plunges her straight into the arms of Collin Hancock, the handsome deputy sheriff who arrests her. Suddenly, her heart’s desire isn’t plain anymore. Could she really be falling for a lawman instead of a cowboy?

About the Authors

Lori Copeland pens stories that make you laugh and cry. Doses of real life written in fictional form have kept her on the bestseller lists for 28 years.  
Virginia Smith is the author of more than a dozen inspirational novels, and over fifty articles and short stories. An avid reader with ecclectic tastes in fiction, Ginny writes in a variety of styles, from lighthearted relationship stories to breath-snatching suspense.

Lori and Ginny have been writing together since 2010. Their weekend plotting and planning sessions are highlights for both of them, even though they know they’ll have to suck on throat lozenges for days afterward from all the talking and laughing.
