Anna's grandfather is the strictest bishop the district has ever had, and that strictness begins at home.
Jacob's family has just moved from their home district to get away from any lingering memories that remind them of their loss.
Anna likes Jacob right away, but she overhears the other young men of the community warning him off, and telling him that Anna is "undateable" because of her overbearing grandfather. Anna is determined to change that perception, so she asks Jacob to the next singing, but because of unforeseen circumstances they never quite make it to the singing, and as a result Anna is forbidden from ever seeing Jacob again.
Plain Peace brings back many familiar faces and introduces us to new ones as well, I liked Marianne, Anna's grandmother who has the kindest of hearts, and more than a few secrets as well.
This book has mystery, and romance with many intertwining plotlines that join and pull apart, weaving a rich tale of depth and community. The setting is realistic, and the dialogue brings that characters to life!
Overall, this was a heartwarming read that brings the message of forgiveness and the great gift of God's forgiveness. A terrific book!
