This was a great book, almost in the form of a question-answer book but without the questions. Many details are given, such as the different hats that are worn by males and females at different times of the year, and how to tell the difference between an Amish home and a non-Amish home from the outside.

I didn't give it a fifth star because the writing was a bit dry, and for all the author's openness, she does nothing more than tease readers' curiousities when explaining bundling (no definition was given--I had to go online to find out what this was) and marital relations.
