A Simple Prayer is an easy read based in a modern-day Amish/Englisher community. It is a story about finding family. Sometimes that is family that under appreciates you. Sometimes it is family that has been lost to you for a while. Both Linda Zook and Aaron Ebersol are young 30-somethings who have been living and working and trying to find their place with family. This pair has common ground in helping one another reach out and overcome family obstacles. Since one is English and one is Amish, they must do this as friends.
