"Never Far From Home" by Mary Ellis: Book Review
We have to remember that the Amish children do not typically attend school as long as non-Amish do. They assume adult responsibilities much younger as well.
Mary Ellis weaves this story around a maturing Emma and a young Englisher sheep farmer from a nearby farm and township.
This is a tale of personal, family, and spiritual conflicts on many levels. If you enjoy reading stories of the Amish and the struggles they face in a modern world, you will enjoy this book.
I was given a complimentary copy of this book to review and to pass on to the Alamance Christian School library by author Mary Ellis.
