A Plain and Simple Heart
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."
"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."

"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."

"This book contains a pleasant mix of Amish culture and Christian faith that keeps the focus on making godly decisions and trusting Him for guidance. This is a great story both for adults and for teens. I recommend it highly."

"Once again, Copeland and Smith have crafted a wonderful, heartwarming tale of young love that is not your typical Amish romance. The first book in The Amish of Apple Grove series set a high standard for a different kind of Amish tale. A Plain and Simple Heart raises the banner even higher, and does not—for even an instant—disappoint. Can't imagine what the authors will come up with next for Apple Grove, but this reader can't wait to find out. A highly recommended, joy of a read!"
