A separate God? Musingly, I remembered the question of my childhood. We were outsiders now. Perhaps there was no separate God, but only varying degrees of the same God.

This book will fill your eyes with tears and at the same time fill your heart with hope.

A totally different look at the Amish. This recounting reveals a real and honest people that aren't so different from the rest of us. Knowing the author personally serves to validate the story even further. Written in a very simple style that is easy to read and enjoy.
