This book was about an Amish family who had a tragedy in their life when their two daughters died in a buggy accident. The Amish faith believe that when you die, you go to heaven so the family did have their own hope about the future. But the twist in the book was being Amish was too much for them to handle and they end up leaving to find their own faith. I know that at the age of teenagers like 16 or 18 Amish children are told to leave the faith and see if they want to live Amish or not called Rumschpringe. It helps people see if they really want to live Amish or not. They get to experience different things then if they had stayed with the Amish. If they decide to come back after leaving their parents welcome them home because it is a normal part of their culture. I believe learning experiences are great for deciding what you want to do with your life and lets you make your own decisions. Your parents can't always tell you what to do because you have to live life for yourself to see how you make it on your own and see how tough you are. Just like when my husband left the religion he grew up in and lived on his own for a while and then came back because he was more comfortable in the religion he always knew. Which was fine for me because I want to support him anyway I can.
