Approval Post

Several years ago, some friends took me on a day trip to an Amish Community less than 100 miles from my hometown that I didn't even know existed. I have made several more trips back there as well as to other Amish communities and every time I go I want to learn more and more about them as their lifestyle is just so fascinating to me. I have read and enjoy reading books about the Amish both fiction and non-fiction ☺ This book gives insight about their daily living, traditions, recipes, and their faith in general.
