Image of Plain Peace (A Daughters of the Promise Novel)

In her sixth Daughters of the Promise novel, Wiseman skillfully weaves her characters and storylines to create stirring scenes that remind the reader that in keeping a strong faith, you will not be led astray. Rich relationships and familiar characters make it easy for the reader to feel connected.

Anna Byler has been raised by her grandparents. Her grandfather, the bishop, seems determined to keep Anna single, as most young men in the district are afraid of him. Jacob Hostetler and his family are new to the area and hoping to start a new life after the tragic loss of his sister. He is interested in Anna, but he fears his past makes him unfit to court her. The bishop takes an immediate dislike to Jacob, and his attitude unwittingly begins to push Anna closer to Jacob and further from her faith. Will her grandfather succeed, or will Anna, and the Lord, soften his heart? (THOMAS NELSON, Nov., 320 pp., $15.99)
