Review of Marlayne Giron's In Plain Sight

   In Plain Sight   Picture from Barnes and Noble

About the book:

This is an Amish, paranormal book.  Two seemingly Amish twin brothers, with strange eyes, one with silver, the other gold,  show up at the Esh home asking if they could work for food and shelter.  The Esh's, being the good Amish people they are, take them in.  Strange things have been happening in their community, like crop circles appearing in fields and strange lights.  The Esh family soon finds out that the brothers have something to do with the occurances, as they are not from this world.  But before they realize it, the oldest Esh daughter, Rebeccca has fallen in love with the brother Seth.  At the end they are bombarded by a media circus and there is a surprising ending as to who, and what, the brothers really are.

My Review:

I have wanted to read this book for a while, but I was kind of skeptical of it, I'll admit.  I don't really "get" the paranormal stuff.  But this book is powerful.  Once I started reading and got into it, I was hooked and couldn 't put it down.  Also, who and what the boys are is a startling surprise.  One that maybe people have never considered before.  Even though they are "aliens" it ends up that their King they talk about is the same GOD we worship also, they just haven't progressed as far as we have yet, as they didn't understand about a Saviour. 

Great job Marlayne, you portrayed a very good Christian message with this book, especially as I've seen some authors ciricized for writing a Christian paranormal style book. 

I received a copy of this book from the author for my honest review.

  1. Thanks so much for the review Melina! I'm so glad you enjoyed it!

  2. Marlayne, your book sounds as though its really different than the usal than the normal Amish novel. I would love to read it, has it been in any of the librarys, The review is I need to read this book

  3. where did my comment go. excellant review

  4. Great review. This book is a little different that normal Amish but if you take the chance to read you will find that it isn't quite as different as you might think. If all books were the same, wouldn't life be boring. Marlayne is a good author with 2 other good books. Give them a try

  5. Thanks for all the great comments and this book is really good, not the normal Amish fiction, but like Cathy said, if all books were the same that would be boring and no use to read any because you would always know the ending! Great job Marlayne.

  6. I have this book on my Kindle, but have not read it yet. Trying to read all the books in the order that I purchased them. It sould like it's different that the other Amish stories I have read. But it sounds very good. Hope to start reading it soon.

  7. This sounds like an interesting book. Found you through Renee's blog hop. Have a great weekend! :O)

  8. Sounds like a fascinating book, Melina! Thanks for sharing it with us on Come to the Table. Blessings!
