If you are looking for insight into the REALITY of daily life in an Old Order Amish settlement then this published, personal journal is for you.
If you prefer the ridiculous, formulaic-driven, pure fantasy of the Amish as portrayed in "Amish Christian Romance" books then this journal may not be for you.
Be aware, it is the young author's journal and not a book, per se, so don't be expecting a finely crafted, professionally edited book.
I have been around the people of the Unity Settlement for about a year now and can absolutely state that this journal has captured the flavor of the Unity Settlement and its people as well as their hospitality.
I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the author's interactions with people I have also interacted with.
This journal is a nice tool for those researching the reality of the Amish lifestyle. People who find this journal interesting may want to look into the life and works of Elmo Stoll, the deceased father of the Stoll brothers of Unity, Maine.
