My Amish Childhood by Jerry S. Eicher ~ Review

My Amish Childhood: A True Story of Faith, Family, and the Simple Life

My Review: Jerry Eicher shares memories from his childhood, growing up Amish in Honduras.

Mr. Eicher tells his unique tale, and also shares his struggles and triumphs, yet at the same time showing that he wasn't that much different than a regular child.

Mr. Eicher introduces us to his family, and rather large extended family, as we get to meet them through his eyes. I learned more of the church life and how strict some of the rules were, some of them strange and seeming to hold the Amish back.

Overall, a well written memoir of a man honestly recounting his younger days, that gives some insight into his best-selling novels and why we writes the way that he does. A great read for Amish fiction fans, that shows the simpler life from the inside.

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thanks!
