When I got the opportunity to review this book, I thought that it would mainly be a motivational religious book with some interesting tidbits of Amish life. Boy, was I wrong!
This book tells the life story of an Amish couple who felt led by God to leave the Amish community and to worship Him by developing a deeper, more intimate relationship with Christ.
The book does share lots of interesting information about the Amish lifestyle. As a matter of fact, I learned more from this book then any other Amish book I’ve read, and I’ve read quite a few.
Irene and Ora share the poignant story of losing their daughters in a buggy accident. They write of the hopelessness they felt as the Amish people around them told them over and over again that IF they lived a good enough life, they would be able to see their daughters again in Heaven.
They share the burden of their hearts to learn more about what God had to say about things and their attempts to live a Biblical, God-pleasing life in the Amish community.
They published letters from friends and family warning them about the consequences of their “new” ways.
I enjoyed this book immensely, and I think that you will to. You may find it on Amazon, CBD, or wherever Christian books are sold.
