Publisher's Summary

A Plain and Simple Heart, an exciting new Amish-meets-Wild West adventure from best-selling authors Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith, weaves an entertaining and romantic tale for devoted fans and new listeners.
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+++++ very different Amish story.

Any additional comments?

This book was a delightful surprise. Well written and entertaining. I was surprised how well a typical western and Amish go together! I have not read the first book of this series but I will now. The narrator did a wonderful job and was pleasant to listen to. I would definitely recommend this book.

Different from other Amish books that I have read.

This book is different from other Amish books that I have read.

I know that there is a lot of variation amongst the Amish culture and sects. However, the grandmother’s obsession with her hutch did not seem accurate to me. I understand her sentimental attachment to something her dear husband made for her, but generally the Amish are portrayed as leading the simple life where possessions would not have that kind of attachment. Also pride is usually portrayed as something to be avoided. In this story pride is a strong part of Emily’s character.

Cecily White’s narration is well done. She distinguishes all the characters well. I did, for the first time ever, listen to this book at 1.25 speed. It seemed to work well.

Sweet historical romance.

Any additional comments?

I listened to the first book and I really liked it so I thought I will give this one a go. This book is based on Emma's sister Rebecca who is grown up and wants to marry the man she thinks she is in love with.

I thought the author is very talented in showing us how immature Rebecca is and shows her age. She is totally different to her sister Emma who is a lot more mature then her. You would think that she would change a bit once she (Rebecca) has gotten older but that is not so. She is still a romantic, more adventures and daring then her sister ever was. So it did not surprise me when she did certain things.
This book is about her journey in understanding her feels and in someways growing up. There are funny moments too, which I love. I like how the author portrays the characters. Not everything is black and white and the author shows us the shades that are inbetween which is a true reflection of how people really act no matter there background, religion, culture, etc. I liked the fact the characters are more complex and they have there own inner battle in what they believe is right and wrong and the road they take to get them to the end result due to there own actions.

I would highly recommend this book to everyone since it is a clean read.
