5-Star Review of "Plain Choice"

Review of Plain Choice

The Plain Fame series #5
27383712

Amanda’s husband, Cuban pop star Alejandro, believed he was doing right by his wife when he left her on her parents’ farm in the familiar shelter of Lancaster’s Amish community. Amanda, however, has other ideas. Unwilling to sit idly by and hide from the paparazzi, she follows her husband to Europe for the start of his world tour to find out if their marriage can be saved once and for all.

When the two reunite, it’s plain to see that their love is stronger than their differences. But as they travel together, Amanda is surprised to discover that her own fame is beginning to match her husband’s. Now she must struggle to bridge her Amish upbringing and a new, unasked-for role in the public eye. As other unexpected tensions challenge their bond, can Amanda and Alejandro keep their promises and make space for her faith, his fame, and a growing love?

MY REVIEW:  I have a huge problem with Sarah Price.....huge problem!  This is the end of the series chronicling the lives and love of Alejandro and Amanda!!  I want to know more....I want to see what happens next for two characters that I have fallen in love with!   Alejandro and Amanda have a choice to make....do they save their marriage or end it?  Do they continue to travel together as Alejandro performs around the world?  Do Amanda and Isadora stay on the family's Amish farm and let Alejandro go his separate way?  Do Amanda and Isadora follow along with Alejandro and live a life-on-the-road?  Does Alejandro give up the music he loves and live the Amish life with Amanda and Isadora and Amanda's family?   So many choices.....so many heart-wrenching decisions to make.   Amanda tries to salvage their marriage by leaving Isadora with her family and flying to meet Alejandro and becoming an active part of his entertainment world.  One thing is clear, no matter what decision they come to, Amanda and Alejandro love each other deeply and they both want the best for each other and Isadora.   

I feel compelled to add something here; I read some very negative reviews that were disgusted that the Amish series deviated so much from the norm.   This is a work of fiction and therefore does not have to necessarily be entirely realistic.  I appreciate the fact that Sarah Price had the courage to write a very different series of Amish fiction.  I read a great number of Amish fiction novels and it gets boring and predictable when they are all the same.  This series is a breath of fresh air in the Amish fiction genre.  

I rated this book 5 stars and am deeply saddened for Amanda and Alejandro's journey to end.  I want more of this delightful, unlikely couple.
I received an ebook of this novel from netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
