Re: Those of you who said it were right - I'm hooked!
Being right in the heart of Amish community here, I would find the books on Amish life fascinating. Dave and I visit our Amish neighbor weekly, to get eggs, and they also come to Dave when they need welding done on some of their farm equipment. We often talked about what their life must be like, and what they do and don't believe. We offered our neighbor a free large window, just to get it out of our house, and he said he couldn't take it, they are only allowed to have certain kinds. We also found out that they don't change their time like we do........spring ahead, fall back. It is fascinating, and yet there is so much we don't understand. Like, why some are able to own a cell phone, and why they can drive or use our electrical equipment, but can't own their own. What else is interesting, is that each community sets their own guidelines. The community we live in here, has completely different beliefs than my farriers community, who is only 10 miles away from us. They also teach their children to speak German first, at least around here. So interesting.
