    This was not really what I thought it would be, having read the back cover, but it was still very interesting and thought provoking. Susan was the star of the reality TV show, but Julie was the main character of the book, the one who truly embraced the concept of a simple life, and the one whose lessons most effected me. I was disappointed by all the compromises made under cover of the "Almost" in the title. It would have been more challenging for them to go totally Amish, including the humility and peacefulness of that culture. I did enjoy seeing Julie realize that being an enabler for others is a ministry in itself, and a valuable one. It was great to see the changes in the children and family dynamics brought about by a lack of 'technological noise.' I really appreciated the wisdom of Rosemary and the gentle way she shared it.

    I would highly recommend this book.

    Julie and Susan take on the chance to live the Amish

    way for the reality show for different reasons. Each

    needs something that they believe they can learn

    or gain from this experience. In the end, they are

    surprised with what they have learned and gained

    from this experience. A very good read from an author

    who stepped out of her box to write it.
