Amy asked:

Near the end of the book, the author mentions that she discovered online something awful that her grandfather had done. Maybe I missed something--does anyone know what the "terrible thing" he had done was?

Patricia I read an interview of hers saying she discovered her grandfather had assualted/molested his daughters. She said she never liked her grandfather and found him creepy. I think some of those daughters (her aunts) left the fold, which is what made it harder on her father when she left.

She also mentioned that her grandfather could never be put in jail because of the Amish order he belonged to.
