Saloma goes into great detail about her struggle with the Amish point of view - particularly submission. As her situation at home deteriorates, she realizes she has to go. That section of the book where she bravely makes her escape is very exciting. Fortunately, she finds her way out in the "world", marries well, has a family and as they grow up she is finally able to realize her dream of going to college. She is very brave to share all the ugly details of her struggle with us. Leaving such a closed community (whom she still loves) takes great courage. The Amish "shun" those who leave but she did have some contact with her family and that part is touching. I suspect that if they ever read this book they won't like it! I highly recommend it.
