Preview and Giveaway: Plain Paradise by Beth Wiseman

by

Today I’m hosting a giveaway for a wonderful author. Thanks to the author, Beth Wiseman, I am able to giveaway a copy of her book Plain Paradise, the 4th book in her Daughters of The Promise series. If it is anything like the other 3 this one will be FANTASTIC!!!

About the Book:

Josephine Dronberger was a scared young girl when she gave up her baby for adoption seventeen years ago. But now, Josie longs to reconnect with the daughter she left in the permanent care of an Old Order Amish couple.

Linda—as the couple named the child—is promised to Stephen Ebersol, a boy in her community, and they plan to marry in the fall.

Will Linda be drawn into the world of the Englisch by a mother she’s never known?

And will Josephine discover far more than she bargained for as her world collides with that of the Plain People in Lancaster County?

About the Author:
Beth is the best-selling author of the Daughters of the Promise series — Plain Perfect, Plain Pursuit, and Plain Promise. She is contracted with Thomas Nelson Publishing for ten Amish novels and three novellas – releasing into 2013.

As she puts it, her writing has been “all over the place.” As a former newspaper reporter, she was honored by her peers with eleven journalism awards, including first place news writing for The Texas Press Association.

She has been a humor columnist for The 1960 Sun in Houston and published articles in various publications. Those articles included a wide array of topics – an article on premature birth, an article about performance boating, and an article about her mother–a whitewater canoeing enthusiast who still paddles the rivers at the age of 75. However, writing novels is where her heart is. She left her job as a journalist in 2008 to write novels fulltime.

“Writing about the Amish lifestyle within fictional love stories has been a wonderful experience,” Beth says. “The Amish and Mennonite contacts I have established in Lancaster County help me to keep the books authentic. These very private people might dress differently, avoid the use of electricity and modern conveniences, but they are just like everyone else. They love, hurt, have daily challenges and struggles, and strive to be the best they can be. An often misunderstood sect of people, it has been a privilege to learn about their ways.”
