Plain Wisdom, Cindy Woodsmall and Miriam Flaud

Two friends from different worlds—one Old Order Amish, one Englischer—share the truths that bring them together.
With poignant recollections, unexpected insights, and humorous tales, the two women welcome you into their unique friendship.  You’ll also gain a rare glimpse into the traditions and ways of the Amish as Miriam recalls special occasions and shares family recipes throughout the book.

You know, it really doesn't matter what your culture is, your family, your friends, your beliefs, people are people. Women are women. And some truths ring true for everyone.

*Plain Wisdom* is the story of two lives, intertwined when a connection would seem to be unlikely in the first place. An Amish woman and an "English" woman just don't seem a likely pair for a friendship OR a book project.

This is a refreshing look at how simple faith and family can be--for anyone, not just the "plain folk." In a literary world that seems to have more stories of how someone broke away from the Amish church rather than an honest heartfelt account of how wonderful it can be, and how it really isn't *that* different at the core from the rest of America is uplifting.
