With poignant recollections, unexpected insights, and humorous tales, the two women welcome you into their unique friendship. You’ll also gain a rare glimpse into the traditions and ways of the Amish as Miriam recalls special occasions and shares family recipes throughout the book.
Plain Wisdom is a heartwarming celebration of God, womanhood, and the search for beauty that unites us all. So grab your cup and your quilt and settle in for a soul-comforting read with Plain Wisdom.
Karen Kingsbury, New York Times best-selling author of Unlocked and Shades of Blue: “A treasure chest, for sure.… The wisdom in these stories is time-tested and true—plain and simple.”
Donald B. Kraybill, author of The Riddle of Amish Culture: “A fascinating comparison between two starkly different ways of life.”
Ellie Kay, author of The 60-Minute Money Workout: “I loved savoring the wisdom in this book.… Plain Wisdom is a serious guide to life that doesn’t take itself too seriously…and offers something for every woman.”
