Product Overview

At age twenty, Saloma Miller leaves behind her Amish community in Burton, Ohio, and boards a night train for Vermont, where she knows no one. In this poignant coming-of-age memoir, Salomas new life of freedom includes plans to continue her education and to work as a waitress. In Vermont, romance also blossoms with a Yankee toymaker. Soon, however, a vanload of people from her community, including the Amish bishop, arrive to take her back into the fold. Salomas freedom comes to an abrupt end when she goes back home to Ohio with them. Thus begins a years-long struggle of feeling torn between two worlds: will she remain Amish and embrace the sense of belonging and community her Amish life offers, or will she return to the newfound freedom she tasted in Vermont?
