Carley Marek, a busy journalist from Texas, travels to Lancaster County deep in the heart of Amish country for a mandatory one month vacation. Little did she know that members of the Amish community and one who was shunned many years ago would affect her life deeply and permanently.

Carley's friend, Lillian who has settled into life in the Amish community and now has a family of her own, is devastated when her son Daniel's life is threatened by illness. Can Carley convince her Amish friends to trust Dr. Noah? Will Carley be able to leave Lancaster County behind when her vacation is up? How will she escape love's pursuit?

Plain Pursuit is the second book in the Daughters of the Promise series by Beth Wiseman. This book can be read as a stand alone if you haven't had the chance to read book 1, Plain Perfect. I really enjoyed the first half of the book. It was interesting to see the struggles that Carley faced and how she adjusted to life with her Amish friend, Lillian. The book started to get predictable after the first half but it was a good read and if you normally enjoy this type of book then you'll probably like Plain Pursuit. I think Book 1, Plain Perfect is the best book so far but we'll see. As of today I know that there are three more books being released in this series, Plain Promise (Book 3), Plain Paradise (Book 4) and Plain Proposal (Book 5).
