I enjoyed this one so much, as it gave a glimpse into the life of the Amish, including the peculiar illnesses that plauge this community. Add baby snatching, genetic research, and love interest to the mix and you have a romantic, medical thriller you can't put down until the last page is read.

I really enjoyed reading this book. The author, committed to a mental institution at about age 18, looks back on her experiences. Even 40 years later, she obviously views her experiences differently than the "society" did then, and differently than many do now. The questions, "What is normal" is definitely posed, and maybe even, "How do we define abuse?" What some might call "abuse" others might call "love" or "romance". I'm not saying I would approve of some things that happened, but in another place and another time what is illegal now might be considered normal or commonplace. Something to think about.

The book I am listing has a different picture on the front, but the isbn is the same and it is in good condition.
