Jen PenMidwest5 Stars Out Of 5Full of beautiful Amish recollections...July 13, 2014Jen PenMidwestQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5
With Amish experience, both authors collect over thirty short stories and reminiscences shared by Amish men and women. Whether it be a barn raising, special events, animal antics, celebrations of life and death, family occurrences or food memories, each story is told with grace, love, heart and sometimes tears. Such a cozy peek at Amish life is sure to enlighten and slow the paceâ€¦
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Being raised an Amish boy (Jerry Eicher) and being a member of the Old Order Amish (Nathan Miller), both men are more than qualified to assemble all the recollections told and deliver them in a beautiful book. With each shared story only 2-3 pages in length, snippets can be read, enjoyed, mulled over and appreciated. Each brief chapter begins with a Bible verse relevant to the following story. Pieces of Amish life can be learned and envisioned. This book would be perfect for anyone interested in the Amish way of life.

This book is compiled by two men who know the Amish. Author Jerry S. Eicher was raised as an Amish boy and Nathan Miller is a member of the Old Order Amish. The book has many true stories told from Amish men and women of everyday life from birth to death. The book made me laugh, cry and think about my own life in this fast pace world. It made me realize that the Amish are just like everyone else, they have their fun, problems and struggles. I also like that there is a Bible Scripture on the first page of each chapter. It is a wonderful book and I recommend it to anyone who wants to read about Amish life from the Amish themselves.
I was provided a copy of this book by the author in exchange for my honest review.
