Plain Wisdom

Several months ago, I received an advanced copy of Plain Wisdom from Cindy Woodsmall and Miriam Flaud as part of my participation in Blogging for Books.  The best way to describe Plain Wisdom is that it's like sitting on the porch with an older mother, gleaning wisdom from her advice. 

Each of the authors takes her turn writing about different areas of a woman's life.  The writing is conversational, inspirational, and relational.  I learned things about how I structure my day.  I learned some of the whys and wherefors of Amish culture.  I even got a few gift ideas fo next Christmas!


This book made me smile.  I hate to sound cliche but it gives me a warm feeling just to write about it.  And it's not Amish Fiction.  So those of you who avoid Beverly Lewis and other authors that focus on this genre, do not avoid Plain Wisdom.  This is a non-fiction book offering insight into the lives of two wives and mothers.  They confer their wisdom onto the reader in plain speak.  It was a breath of fresh air to read.  I highly recommed this book.
