Growing up Amish and leaving the fold, Emma Gingerich left her Amish community in Eagleville, Missouri, at the age of eighteen. Her memoir Runaway Amish Girl: The Great Escape captivates even the timid listener. Disagreeing with the beliefs of Amish traditions and upbringing, the pressure became too much for her to bear. Forced to make a personal decision, Emma found the courage to leave the only life she had ever known. She had no idea the emotional turmoil she'd inflict on her family and friends. The emotional reactions of her parents, brothers, and sisters, were gut-wrenching. Considered no longer a daughter or a sister, temporarily exiled, Emma found a way to be free. Education became her priority as she found her place in the 'English' world. This true story is a rare glimpse into the life of a brave young woman.

Emma did a great job painting a picture of Amish life. Sharing her inner struggles and inner thought life took a lot of courage. Coming from an overly conservative, very restrictive, fundamental baptist background myself, I found her book very helpful.
