I am the author of:
Bonnet Strings: An Amish
Woman's Ties to Two Worlds
Bonnet Strings is about leaving the Amish and the struggle to find my way in the outside world. It offers a rare look inside an Amish community, and yet it is a universal story of leaving home and overcoming adversity. Readers of Amish fiction, viewers of the PBS documentaries “The Amish” and “The Amish: Shunned,” and others will find in it an authentic Amish story.
