Escaping The Past
The novel shows the dilemma for the young Amish – they wonder if the Englisch way of life is better. Rumschpringe is a trying time for both parents and youngsters.
How far would you go to escape your life? How many lies would you tell? What happens if you build your new life on a foundation of lies?
There is an awakening to God in the novel. He seemed so far away. Sometimes we feel unworthy of God’s love but His grace covers us all. A series of divine appointments can light a fire in our soul.
