This book was more of an autobiography than a novel or story. I'm sure her family would enjoy reading it to know about their family background, but, I was disappointed in it. I read most of the book, but just didnt feel like taking the time to finish it. It verified the things that we read about in other Amish books.
I love Amish stories, yet I had not read anything like this, and took a chance because the price was right and I was feeling adventurous. While it's not my normal style of writing, I was pleasantly surprised and drawn in, and loved reading it. It was worth stepping out of my box, and trying something a little different.
