Publisher's Summary

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.
Kansas,1881--On a trip to visit relatives, Emma Switzer's Amish family is robbed of all their possessions, leaving them destitute and stranded on the prairie. Walking into the nearest trading settlement, they pray to the Lord for someone to help. When a man lands in the dust at her feet, Emma looks down at him and thinks, The Lord might have cleaned him up first.
Luke Carson, heading up his first cattle drive, is not planning on being the answer to anyone's prayers, but it looks as though God has something else in mind for this kind and gentle man. Plain and rugged--do the two mix? And what happens when a dedicated Amish woman and a stubborn trail boss prove to be each other's match?

Kept me listening to the end

I should confess I have avoided Amish romances in the past, but this one sounded good and I decided to give it a try. I am glad I did as I couldn't put it down.
Sweet Amish listen where papa and the family stay true to their Amish beliefs and morals while helping out an "English" person who helped them when they were in a fix. The story flowed well and the narration was excellent. The voices in the story were especially done well.
I will also confess I don't often care for grandma characters in books, both their written character and the narration of them. The Grandma in The Heart's Frontier was one of my favorite characters in the book though. Her wisdom and the care of her family was heartwarming and just right.
Enjoyable listen, looking forward to more in the series.

It feels like a teenage romance novel.

I apologize. I got my reviews mixed up. This review is for “A Plain and Simple Heart.” Go to “A Plain and Simple Heart” for a review of “The Heart’s Frontier.” Sorry about that!

Again this book seems to show an unusual slant on the Amish. Yes, Rebecca is on her Rumspringa, but, even so, it is difficult to imagine an Amish young girl behaving as Rebecca does! She is quite an immature you lady!

These two books of the 'Amish of Apple Grove' series are gentle romances set in the west. They feel like the romance books I read as a teenager!

The narration is well done, the individual characters are distinguished well from each other.

Sweet Romance

Any additional comments?

I really liked this book more then I expected. I have read books in this genre before and some are better then others.

I believe the author did really well in portraing the characters, in that she made them more 3D, so they felt real in how they acted. Also the author did a great job in showing us the characters personality without being told. It was easy for me to picture them in my head by how they acted.
All the characters behaved in the way that I thought they would behave but it was not all black and white. It was actually an interesting read and made you think about your own personality and if you could have done what they did.

This is a clean read so it suitable for all and I would highly recommend it.
The narrator did a great job in voicing all the characters out and giving them there own personality.
