Book Review (Why I Left the Amish by: Saloma Miller Furlong)

I am sorry I have not posted on my status of this book. I had some personal things come up that I had to attend to. Nothing bad so no worries. =)

I enjoyed reading this book although it was a little hard to read because it is her personal story and the things she went through were difficult. I don't want to give to much away. I recommend this book to everyone. It really shows you that what you think you know is not always the case. It definitely opened my eyes.

A passage I wanted to share is this:

"I thought I would die of shame and indignation. Bishop Dan was giving us a vote about whether Datt should confess sitting or kneeling! If someone disagrees, will Datt have to kneel for his confession after all? What if someone disagrees with the whole charade?"

I felt her frustration and anger as I read this and other things in this book. I would rate this book 4 stars. =)
