Bestselling fiction author Jerry S. Eicher (nearly half a million books sold) turns his pen to a moving memoir of his life growing up Amish.
Jerrys mother was nineteen years old and nine months married when he was born. She had received Grandfather Stolls permission for the wedding because she agreed to help out on the farm the following year. However, with Jerry on the way, those plans failed.
Jerry recounts his first two years of school in the Amish community of Aylmer, Ontario and his parents decision to move to Honduras. Life in that beautiful Central American country is seen through an Amish boys eyesand then the dark days when the community failed and the family returned to America, much to young Jerrys regret. Jerry also tells of his struggle as a stutterer and his eventual conversion to Christ and the reasons for his departure from the childhood faith he knew.
Here is a must-read for not just Jerrys fiction fans, but also for readers curious about Amish life.
Jerry Eichers Amish fiction has sold more than 800,000 copies. After a traditional Amish childhood, Jerry taught for two terms in Amish and Mennonite schools in Ohio and Illinois. Since then hes been involved in church renewal, preaching, and teaching Bible studies. Jerry lives with his wife, Tina, in Virginia.
This is a wonderful historical account of an Amish group's experience. It was very fascinating to me. I highly recommend this book.
Jerrys adventures will astound you.

For those fascinated by the Amish culture and lifestyle, I recommend Eicher's autobiography.

I must admit, I thought I knew a lot about the Amish until I read this book, which is packed full of information. I also gained insight into Jerry and what made him the author he is today! No wonder he writes with such understanding of the Plain People. A great book that you should not miss reading!
