Yeah, yeah ... another Amish book. I know ! But I'm fascinated.
You know what kind of makes me sad though ? It seems, the books I read about the Amish are
all stories of people who feet oppressed and trapped and lost and depressed and just have to get out ...
This book was no different.
I'd like to read a book about the Amish by someone who LOVES being Amish. I'd love to know if the things that appeal to me are the things that they love. The community. The simplicity. The sense of belonging. The family picnics. The "barn raisings".
This book is not about loving being Amish.
It's one mans story. One mans thoughts and feelings. It's one man's opinion and a look through his eyes. His struggle. His indecision. His depression. His comings and goings. His moment of truth.
We all have a story.
This is his.
