     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?

     Meet Naomi whose favorite author is C.S. Lewis. Rebecca who is single and has a career. Susie who is an artist.

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.
