Written by a woman who grew up in an Amish community, this book tells the stories of Amish womanhood. Gathered through a series of interviews and conversations with Amish women, many of whom the author knew for most of her life.
Written by a woman who grew up in an Old Order Amish community and church, Amish Women: Lives and Stories offers a gentle, lyrical inside view of Amish womanhood. How are Amish women unique? How are they typical? How do they find expression in a place that values community togetherness above all else? This generous and heartwarming memoir explores these questions to discover what it means to be a woman and to be Amish.
Meet Naomi whose favorite author is C.S. Lewis. Rebecca who is single and has a career. Susie who is an artist. And Esther who has lost two children and spends much of her time reaching out to other members of her community who have suffered loss. Louise Stoltzfus gathered her stories through a series of interviews and conversations with Amish women, many of whom she has known most of her life. Little has been written about Amish women. How are they regarded within their highly structured community? How whole are they as individuals? This insightful, gently probing, yet always respectful text opens a door to this nearly hidden world. Profiles 10 Amish women; written by a woman reared in an Amish family.
