It started with the crop circles followed by the disappearance of livestock. Then he appeared. He was obviously Old Order Amish. He did and said everything right but no one knew what family or farm he belonged to. He worked in the fields and a barn raising like everyone else and was in every respect just like one of them except for his silver eyes. Despite his quiet and respectful demeanor the community of Bird-in-Hand was leery of him. Every-one avoided him; except for Rebecca Esh…two star-crossed lovers whose romance not only endangers the Amish family who takes him in but puts the world he and his brother come from in great peril.
Some reviewers have said that the mix of Amish and aliens is a little hard to grasp. I say…why? If aliens can land in Texas, Nebraska, Rhode Island or anywhere else, they can sure land in Amish country! I’m surprised no authors have thought of this before. And if someone has, I’ve never heard of the book.
I’m not an big fan of reading about aliens. I can count on half of one hand the books I’ve read with an historical, paranormal or medieval times theme. I just don’t read them. The first book I read of Marlayne’s was The Victor. It’s an historical fiction about kings and castles and battles. Not my thing. But I decided to read it and I was amazed that I loved it. Because I loved her first book so much, and even though this book was about aliens, I decided to give it a try. And like her previous book, this one was also a page turner.
Whether you like books about the Amish or aliens doesn’t really matter much when reading this book. What does matter is a love for a book that makes you want to keep reading, and this one does just that. It’s interesting from the first page and continues that way clear to the end.
The book also has romance (another thing I don’t read a lot of), and tells of a love so strong those in love are willing to give up everything they know to be with the other person.
Marlayne Giron is Blessed as a writer. She has a way of drawing you in and making you love a book that you thought you wouldn’t even like much. And she’s done it again with In Plain Sight.
Marlayne is also the author of “Make A Wish“.

  1. Hi Vikki,

    Like yourself, I can count on less than one hand, books I have read about aliens and the paranormal, it really just isn't my thing, unless of coures there wasn't anything else to read in the houes, then anything would be fair game believe me!

    I have read a couple of novels which highlight certain aspects and lifestyle choices of the Amish community, although I have never taken the time to explore this following more closely in any factual books.

    I do read romance novels, but not on a regular basis. They are great as a light read occasionally and there are some very accomplished romance authors out there now, who can bring something just that little bit extra to the plot, which adds a real interest factor.

    I am always open to trying something new if it has been recommended by a blogger who has interests which are basically similar to my own, so I have added this one to my list and shall definitely give it a go.

    Nice review and enjoy your week.

    Yvonne
