Bestselling author Mary Ellis offers an engaging new standalone Amish romance about a prodigal seeking to find his way home.

Though Caleb Beachy lived in the Englisch world for some years, he is a Plain man at heart. When he decides to return to the Amish lifestyle, he moves back home and goes to work for his father. Soon these two strong-willed men find themselves at odds. Caleb discovers there's more to embracing his faith and reconnecting with the community than merely driving a horse and buggy and giving up Levis.

Josie Yoder was just a girl when he left. All grown up now, she gives Caleb hope for the future. She soothes his frayed temper and is determined to remind him that while his faith may have wavered, God never left his side. Caleb is tempted to return Josie's feelings, but the choices he made while away are a heavy burden on his conscience. Will past mistakes end up destroying their fledgling romance? Or will she be able to break through the wall around his heart?

A Plain Man is more than just a sweet romance centered in Amish beliefs. It's the ever-fresh story of a wounded heart finding joy, health, and healing in God's infinite grace.

A Plain Man is the story of a man who has lived in both worlds, English and Amish. He now wants to become a full Amish man, but is dealing with some of the repercussions from some of the decisions he made living in the English world.
Caleb Beachy was gone longer than most men, when they leave their community, but after five years, has decided he want to return. Can he and his community accept his decision? Can he forgive himself of the sins he committed while live in the English world? Will he be able to conform into the person his faith requires of him?
He also has some romance on the horizon, but can Josie Yoder's family forgive him for leaving and living worldly for so long? As the Amish grapevine whispers about him, will he be able to hold his head high and finish his required classes?
Come and absorb yourself in the Amish Community, spend time at the Preaching Sunday. Enjoy the fellowship and the great meals afterward. You'll love some of the bantering that goes on. Some sibling rivalry, and family disagreements, just likes the rest of us. I so enjoyed my visit here, and hope there will be more to return to!


I received this book through Net Galley and the Publish Harvest House, and was not required to give a positive review.
