18-year-old Marianna summer has spent her entire life with the Amish in Indiana.  She plans to be baptized into the Church, marry Aaron Zook and start her own family.   

When her older brother decides to leave the community and follow the way of the Englisch, Marianna's father decides to move the family to Montana.  I Marianna is of legal age and is in her own.
Rumschpringe years, and not obligated to move with the family, she decides to go to help her mother, who is pregnant with another child.

She was surprised to find herself being influenced by many Englisch ways in Montana.  She finds herself desiring to pursue a deeper kind of joy and love for God.  She said Lawrence.  The move for me Indiana was not about losing that about finding out who God really is.  Through our experiences, both good and bad Marianna feels a peace in our soul.

I enjoyed reading this book because I learned about the Amish.  I will recommend this book to anyone.

I received this book from lit fuse publicity in exchange for an honest and open review.
