Plain Wisdom

imgres.jpegPlain Wisdom by Cindy Woodsmall and Miriam Flaud is a series of short, well written chapters that are written by an Old Order Amish woman (Miriam Flaud) and an Englisher (Cindy Woodsmall).  Each short chapter deals with a situation, special event, or every day occurance as seen through the eyes of these two women.
While this is not  a book to just sit down and read through, it is one that is enjoyed a little at a time.  It is interesting to see the perspective of friendship of these two women who live in such different worlds.
I found this book entertaining because I personally know an Old Order Amish family, and their views on life, society and family are so different from mine, yet at the same time, there are so many ways I wish my life was like theirs.
Plain Wisdom is a good read if you are looking for something to pick up here and there and to glean a new perspective.
