Teaser Tuesday - Plain Perfect by Beth Wiseman

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

1. Grab your current read.
2. Let the book fall open to a random page.
3. Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12. 4. You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
5. Please avoid spoilers!

My 2 “Teaser” Sentences for today:

"While you were out tending to your pretty flowers in the yard, Lilly, that noisy portable phone kept ringin' this morning," Grandpa bellowed. "It took me a few tries, but I finally was able to talk into it." He paused. "I told Sarah Jane she needed to come for a visit. She'll be here on Wednesday."

~ p.211, “Plain Perfect” by Beth Wiseman




From the back cover:
On the rolling plains of Lancaster County, PA., Lillian Miller is searching for her grandparents' house...and so much more. After years of neglect and abuse, she's turning to a lifestyle of simplicity among the Amish to find herself.As she discards the distractions of her former life, she befriends the young boy working on her family's farm and his attractive widowed father, Samuel Stoltzfus. Despite Lillian's best efforts to the contrary, her feelings for Samuel--and his for her--deepen. Will Lillian find her faith in Plain living, or will she be forced to return to her former life?

Thanks for visiting. 3 Cups of Tea is taking me longer to get through than I thought - but it is very inspirational what determination can do.
