A family living in one of America's wealthiest communities steps away from mainstream society and joins the horse-and-buggy Amish life. The family of Bill and Tricia Moser are seeking deeper connections to belief, community and purpose in life. The book is rare in Amish literature because it presents the perspective of people who grew up in modern America and immersed in the Amish world, offering both the fresh view of a newcomer and the intimate view of an insider. The book explores such aspects of Amish culture as faith, business, community connectedness, what it was like to learn to drive a horse and buggy and make the family's clothes.
