Fewer than one hundred outsiders have joined the Amish since 1950 and mdash;and stayed. Marlene C. Miller is one of them. In this rare memoir, Miller recounts her unhappy and abusive childhood, how she throws herself into cheerleading and marching band, and how she falls in love with the gentle young Amish man who helps lace her ice skates.
Follow the author on this unusual journey to find out how God and rsquo;s love called her out of bitterness and depression and into the warm embrace of her new Amish community. Accompany her as she dons an Amish dress and prayer covering and gets baptized. Learn how she endures the strain of ten children, a hundred-acre farm, and personal tragedies, and find out how she comes close to walking away from it all. Turning Amish has proven to be anything but plain and simple for this former majorette. Yet nearly fifty years later, Miller is still living out God's call as an Old Order Amish woman.
Hear straight from Amish people themselves as they write about their daily lives and deeply rooted faith in the Plainspoken series from Herald Press. Each book in the series includes and ldquo;A Day in the Life of the Author and rdquo; and the author's answers to FAQs about the Amish.
