George Guidall uses vocal nuances and Pennsylvania Dutch accents to capture the story of Will's return to Amish country to bury his father, Levi. Through a series of flashbacks Will's early days in the community are recounted--the years that led up to his abandoning the mother of his unborn child, lying about his age, and enlisting in the Army, betraying the pacifist beliefs of his faith. Guidall excels at depicting a variety of characters, male and female, particularly young children. And his portrayals of Will's non-Amish Southern belle of a wife and a circle of judgmental Amish women are priceless. This warm story is an excellent peek into life within the Amish community.
