    Doesn’t sound like my type of thing either so I shall avoid it for now. Thanks for the review!

    Thank you for your honest review – I was considering this one but it might just be that I’m not at the right place in my life for it.

    I’ve seen this book around, but non fiction isn’t my thing. After your review, I definitely don’t think it’s for me!

    Great Review! New follower here!

      Great to have you! I think it could be a good book for somebody else, but it just wasn’t for me.

    I rarely read memoirs myself and maybe it is my age as well.. but I feel like I’ve just got started really living and to be honest – they’re usually kinda tragic or uplifting and I’m a middle of the road type reader.

    I’m glad you gave it a shot even it it wasn’t the perfect read. Thanks for the review! 🙂

      Yeah, I feel you. I often really like memoirs – but there has to be something that I can relate to in some way, or that I’m at least interested in learning about. This just didn’t do it for me.

    My mother recently gave me two full boxes of books, one of which is this one. I’ve been looking forward to reading it. I am always so interested in small religious communities, be they of the sweet, peaceful Amish kind or the strange, creepy polygamist kind 🙂 There is just something fascinating about a group of people living so far out of the norm. I’m one of those older, married, divorced, married again types, so hopefully I will like it 🙂

      It might work for you, indeed! I think I’m just not at the right point in my life to have enjoyed it.

    I forgot to say-cute layout, and I am also a teacher, though in Chicago, not the great white north!

    I actually ordered this for our library’s collection, but hadn’t picked it up yet. I like that you gave an honest review of it. Sometimes, a book can sound really good, and then just not really resonate. 🙂

      Yup! There was nothing really wrong with it, just not my cup of tea.

    I just bought this book for my Kindle and have been anxious to read it after reading some excerpts. I read the part about the cousin and the tractor, and immediately decided I needed to read it. I hope the rest of it doesn’t disappoint!

      I hope so, too! It wasn’t a bad book, just not for me.

    Thanks for your thoughts on this one, I guess I really didnt know what it was about until I read your review.
