Book Review: Just Plain Sadie by Amy Lillard

 Just Plain Sadie (A Wells Landing Romance)

Just Plain Sadie (A Wells Landing Romance)



From Amazon:

The Amish of Wells Landing, Oklahoma, treasure their close-knit community, and the promise of their growing families. But one young woman is struggling to choose a future that is true to both her heart and her faith…

Everyone in Wells Landing has long expected Sadie Kauffman and Chris Flaud to marry--despite Sadie's telling them differently. While she loves Chris, it is more as a friend than a husband. Yet at twenty-two, the plainest girl in her group, Sadie is also the only one who is still single. Perhaps it's time to be practical and marry Chris--though he still has not asked. But when Sadie meets a kind, handsome Mennonite, it seems her prayers have been answered…

With Ezra Hein, Sadie at last feels the joy she nearly gave up on. Unfortunately, others only feel shock that she would consider marrying an outsider. To complicate matters, Chris has finally begun talking to Sadie about their future. Distressed, Sadie will have to search her heart to recognize God's marvelous gifts to her--and find the courage to accept them, challenges and all…


My thoughts:

Just Plain Sadie by Amy Lillard takes us back to Wells Landing and to the family restaurant where Sadie works.  I loved revisiting and finding out more about their lives. 

Although filled with romance, I love that sprinkled in this book were a couple of action packed moments. They actually made my heart stop for a few minutes.  

You know that sinking feeling you get when you feel like your world is not turning out the way you imagined?  I was reminded in this book not too worry, that God will help us work out the problems that occur.  

As a mother I could sympathize with Sadie's mother when she worried over her daughter's future.  She only wanted what was best for Sadie and to keep her close.  When Sadie finally makes up her mind she knew it will affect everyone.  

This is the fourth book in this series but don't worry if you have never read the others this book can be read alone.

A wonderful read!  

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
