Almost Amish by Nancy Sleeth
In this book, the author has described 10 principles of Amish life and explains how we can apply these to our lives. Ahe also tells about her own life and how she has tried to apply these principles in her life. To me, the parts about her own life sounded rather sanctimonious and I was not thrilled with that aspect of the book. The Amish princples of living a simple life, in a closely knit family and community focused on the Lord sounded good and I did enjoy that part of the book although that seemed overly idealized in parts as well. There are a few recipes at the end for some breads and soups and I look forward to trying them.
