Adam Verner portrays Wagler's Old Order Amish family and its strict rules in this heartwarming memoir. The story begins with Wagler's rumspringa, the Amish rite of passage in which boys experience the outside world. Verner richly characterizes Wagler's journey of self-discovery, in particular the naïveté and torment that leads to his life-changing decision to leave the Amish way of life 10 years later. With warmth and humor Verner recounts Wagler's car purchase, forbidden by the Amish, and his wearing of "English" clothing, which marks him as a rebel. When Wagler loses his beloved horse, Studs, Verner's delivery will bring tears. This memoir is different from most Amish stories, and Verner's narration is real and honest.
