Blogger Bethany Eicher has recently posted a review of Anything But Simple. “To grow up Mennonite,” she writes, “is to be set apart from the world at large for life. The best way I can think of to describe this odd phenomenon is to imagine being born Russian and living in America.” Go to her blog About My Father’s Business to read more and to enter your name in her giveaway.
Sometimes people ask me why I wrote Anything But Simple. To hear my answer, visit Marian Beaman at Plain and Fancy and read the interview she’s posted there. You will find out not only the “why” of the book, but my favorite scene, my family’s reaction to the revealing of family secrets, and my age—don’t forget about my age. Marian has also posted her review of the book and is offering a giveaway which will close one week from today.
