Description

A Plain and Simple Heart, an exciting new Amish-meets-Wild West adventure from bestselling authors Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith, weaves an entertaining and romantic tale for devoted fans and new readers.

1884—Several years earlier, young Rebecca Switzer lost her heart to Jesse Montgomery, a rugged but dissolute cowboy on a dusty cattle trail near the Amish settlement of Apple Grove. Now she is grown up, and when she hears one day that he has been spotted nearby, her desire is plain and simple: She must see him.

Sheriff Colin Maddox is counting the days until he can leave law enforcement and follow his dream of starting a church. When a lovely woman, new to town and looking travel weary and a bit lost, gets caught up in the middle of a temperance riot, she is arrested along with the leaders. He can hardly believe she is what she claims—a Plain and simple woman. Nor can he believe how quickly he loses his heart to her. Can Colin convince her to forget Jesse and give him a chance?

"A fun book by a dynamic author-duo of Inspirational Western Amish genre. The Amish of Apple Grove series books are plots beyond normal in historical western or Amish genres. It's a bit more raucous than cozy; in an inspiring way. Yes, even some romance shot into the mix." -Alan Daugherty "This book will get you hooked within the first chapter and you will not want to put it down. It is a fun read just to see what Rebecca will come up with next." -Edna Tollison, edna-myfavoritethings.blogspot.com "I have not read the first, but I found this one delightful. Who would have thought that the Western-Amish combination would work at all? I guess that's the genius of the two authors... The characters are many and well-developed, as is the story. Just when you think you know what will happen next, the story takes an unexpected turn." -Emily A.
