Product Description

If you live in a conservative Mennonite community, edges are sewn shut and questions have answers. So if you've got a saucy tongue and a roving curiosity about the world, you've got a story to tell.

As a schoolteacher in a small Mennonite school in rural Wisconsin, Lucinda J. Miller wears long dresses and a prayer covering, like her grandmother, and she knows a lot about cooking and making do with what you've got. But she uses a cellphone and posts status updates on Facebook.

So why would a young woman with access to all these technologies remain within a sheltered community like the plain Mennonites? How can someone with an eye for beauty and a sometimes sardonic wit stay within a tradition that values discipline and submission and uniformity?

Anything but Simple is the stirring memoir of a young woman's rich church tradition, lively family life, and longings for a meaningful future within her Mennonite faith.
