I know lots of you (me included) really enjoy the Amish books of Beverly Lewis, Wanda Brunstetter and Cindy Woodsmall. I just finished a book by W. Dale Cramer, Levi's Will, that I would like to recommend.
It is the story of a young Amish man, Will, who "jumps the fence" or leaves the faith after he was baptised, and engaged to be married with a pregnant fiancee. Stretching from the early 1940's to the mid 1980's, it follows Will's life, through his stint in the US Army during WWII to falling in love and raising a family in Georgia -- all the while trying to maintain some ties to his family in Ohio which involved being "under the Ban", or in other words, shunned for decades. It is a tale of redemption and forgiveness.
I found many new insights into the Amish people and their view of the world. It is a well-written book that deserves to be as well known as the other Amish books by the authors I have mentioned.
