Cindy Woodsmall and Miriam Flaud
In Plain Wisdom author Cindy Woodsmall and Miriam Flaud, a member of the Old Order Amish community, share stories of their lives and their friendship. Each chapter has a title and Bible verse that correspond to a short story or writing from both authors. The sections by Woodsmall revolve around her friendship with Flaud as well as family stories, while Flaud’s portion of each chapter provides insight about life in an Old Order Amish community. Some of the chapters also include mouth-watering recipes.
Lately I find myself interested in learning more about the Amish community and this book definitely provided me with interesting information. Everything from marriage to church to quilting is discussed in this book. I’ve not yet read any of Woodsmall’s Amish fiction novels, but I can’t wait to get my hands on some and see how she has put her research to work in her writing. This was a quick and interesting read.
This book can be found at Amazon and Barnes and Noble, as well as many other retailers.
