Product Description

A modern "Englischer" trades her fast-paced existence for a horse-and-buggy lifestyle. It's a familiar premise in Amish fiction, but Sherry Gore did it in real life! You'll be captivated by her memoir of joining the Plain People as an outsider; learning to "make it, grow it, or do without it"; and thriving on faith, family---and pie! 224 pages, softcover from Zondervan.

Publisher's Description

Raised in a broken family and emotionally overlooked, Sherry Gore grew up without a solid foundation, a prisoner of her own poor choices, and at times without hope.  A series of terrible mistakes left her feeling wrecked and alone and a sudden tragedy threw Sherry into an emotional tailspin too powerful to escape.

Sherry hangs by a thread, unable to see how she can go on living, until it happens: on a morning of no particular significance, she walks into a church and BAM the truth of Jesus’ forgiving love shatters her world and cleaves her life in two:  She goes to bed stunned; she wakes up a Christian.

Unwilling to return to the darkness of her former life, Sherry attacks her faith head on.  Soon the life Sherry Gore remakes for herself and her children as she seeks to follow the teachings of the Bible features head coverings, simple dress, and a focus on Jesus Christ.  Only then does she realize, in a fit of excitement, that there are others like her.  They are called Amish and Mennonite, and she realizes she has found her people.

The plain choice that Sherry makes is not easy – and life still brings unexpected pain and heartache - but it changes everything for her, as she becomes one of the few people on earth to have successfully joined the Amish from the outside. 

She has found her place. And her story proves that one can return from the darkest depths to the purest light with the power of God.

Editorial Reviews

Sherry Gore holds nothing back in her riveting memoir, The Plain Choice: A True Story of Choosing to Live an Amish Life. Her early years revealed the cascading effect of poor choices, but the hand of God kept gently redirecting her. Sherry’s salvation came through the loving community of the Amish-Mennonite church. Her compelling story, while unique, holds a message for everyone: Nothing is beyond the redemptive power of God.
Sherry Gore’s The Plain Choice is a heartwarming story of overcoming obstacles to find peace and a place to belong. Her journey will captivate readers who love the Amish culture and enjoy spending time in the Plain community.
Gore's penchant for dancing on the edge of the volcano, and her impressive ability to live to tell the tale, will keep the pages turning and leave readers eager for her next memoir.
