Book Review from Seven Days

By “hardships,” Furlong doesn’t just mean living without electricity, or conforming to the dictates of a strict religious community. In her new memoir, Why I Left the Amish, she describes growing up with a father who was mentally ill and a mother who worked furiously to feed her seven children. ~ Margot Harrison, Seven Days 

On the same day that my first book talk is rescheduled, there is another article/review that just came out in Seven Days in Burlington, Vermont. It is another well-written, gratifying review that reveals another person’s take on the book. I feel honored and grateful for the compliments in this review and in the previous reviews.

Please check out the links on the right-hand side of this blog, or else on my website for all the articles and reviews thus far. 

I am preparing for my book launch party in Burlington, Vermont this weekend, so I won’t be posting until at least Monday, which is the first day of classes at Amherst College. It will be hectic.

This is all to say that I will be taking a break for a few days. I hope to be back on Monday, January 24, but it may be Tuesday. 

In the meantime, Monica, the Mennobrarian is giving away a copy of Why I Left the Amish. She is drawing tomorrow, so head on over and leave a comment/link for a chance to win.

Karen Lange is going to be posting an interview with me tomorrow on Write Now. She is also offering a giveaway of the book, so please also visit her blog for a chance to win.

Have a wonderful weekend, and I hope to be back early next week.

  1. I finally finished your book! I have been reading about 4 other books but I always read yours before bed. I liked thinking about another world entirely different then mine before sleeping. I am disappointed though. For no other reason then because the book ended too soon. I am going to reread it. I wish you nothing but the best!

  2. Peggy, thank you so much for your positive comments… yes this is an exciting time.

    Karen, it was a pleasure for me, too.

    B, thank you for your thoughts about the book. Many people feel the same about it ending too soon. The next book will continue the story, though. Thank you for all your good wishes!

    Blessings to all!
