About The Author
I really enjoyed this look into the life of the Amish. I think more than any other book of this genre that I've read, it really focused on a lot of the everyday life vs. idea of what we think it is. The story was fun and kept me reading, the writing was excellent. Anyone who is a fan of this genre should put this at the top of their TBR list. This is definitely one that you won't want to miss.
Thanks to the publisher for sending me a review copy of this book.
