Plain Fame by Sarah Price

Amanda Beiler is on her way home to her small Amish community in Lititz, Pennsylvania from Ohio and, while changing trains in Manhattan, finds herself in the hospital. Unbeknownst to her, her benefactor during her brief stay in New York City is a famous singer which causes too much interest in their relationship from the paparazzi. When he decides to ride back with her to Lititz, the course of both their lives change. Can fame survive among the Amish?

About The Author

The Preiss family emigrated from Europe in 1705, settling in Pennsylvania as the area's first wave of Mennonite families. Sarah Price has always respected and honored her ancestors through exploration and research about her family history and their religion. At nineteen, she befriended an Amish family and lived on their farm throughout the years.
As a masterful storyteller, Sarah Price prides herself on presenting an authentic Amish experience for her readers. Many of her stories are based on actual people she has met and her own experiences living among the Amish over the years. Sarah now resides in Morris County, New Jersey with her family.
While she started out as an Indie author, she signed on with Realms, an imprint of Charisma House and Waterfall Press, an imprint of Brilliance Publishing. Her first book, First Impressions: An Amish Adaptation of Pride and Prejudice was released in May 2014.

My Review

 An innocent walk across a New York City street, with her focus on where she is going and not on where she is, changes her life forever. She is hurt, broken leg, and ends up in a hospital, and the man who feels responsible for the car hitting her, his driver was the one who hit her, comes to her rescue and visits and takes care of this young Amish woman alone in the big city, and ends up driving her home to her Pennsylvania Amish Community.
What they don’t seem to understand, as they don’t listen to rap music is that he is a famous individual. He takes to the quiet life as her parents have allowed him to stay in their grandparent’s home, the Dawdi House and he is quickly absorbed in their culture.
Once he is discovered staying in this quiet community things can never be the same until he leaves. Then it is found out that our Amanda, the young Amish woman, is now the focus of the press.
Will life ever return to the way the Amish want to live, we they continue to be photographed and harassed? You are about to find out once you pick up this quick and interesting, and a bit different book. Love that I have another book in this series to delve into, and I can’t wait!
I received this book from the Author Sarah Price, and was not required to give a positive review.
