Recently I received a package in the mail from her. Since I have a weakness for packages I laid aside what I was doing at the moment and opened it. Inside I found one of her latest books, "Amish Peace" After flipping through it a little I started reading bits and pieces and before I knew it I had read the whole book. I found it to be very interesting as each chapter was a short story of either memories Amish people had shared or interviews they had done. At the end of each chapter were a few questions to ask yourself that I found quite thought provoking.
As I laid the book aside I felt acutely reminded what all we sacrificed when we left our comfortable little world in an Amish community. Though we don't even consider returning I was glad to find a book that shows some of the qualities I admire and miss from the Amish culture.
Suzanne did not ask me to review her book, but I wanted to share with all of you that I had finally found a book about the Amish that I actually enjoyed reading.
