Product Description

Leah is seventeen and Amish. Like many her age she has lots of questions, but the temporary flight of freedom known as rumspringer is not the answer for her. She does not desire the English fashion, all-night parties, movies or lots of boyfriends. Leah is seeking to understand her relationship with God, to deepen and broaden her faith by joining a Bible study hosted by an ex-Amish couple. She wants to know why Amish life is the only lifestyle that her family accepts, why the church has so many rules, and most disturbing, how godly men can allow her best friend to be abused in her own home.

In the pressure cooker environment of church and family, Leah is not allowed to ask these questions. When finally she reaches the breaking point, she walks away from the Old Order Amish life that is all she has ever known. Though adapting amiably to the Englischer world, Leah is tormented with homesickness. Returning to the community, however, entails a journey of pain and sorrow Leah could never have imagined.

The miting, the shunning, that will now be Leah's unendurable oppression everyday is beyond her most devoted attempts to believe or understand. All the bishop and her family ask is that she abandons her practice of reading the Bible. Is that a price she is willing to pay?
