Almost Amish

Kathryn Cushman
Also Available In
"Cushman crafts strong characters that are
easy to connect with."--Romantic Times

Julie Charlton is at the breaking point. She's overwhelmed and burned out, and in today's unrelenting society, her kids are, too. When her sister-in-law Susan, a Martha Stewart-in-training, lands the chance to participate in a reality TV series promoting simple living, and needs another family to join her, it seems like the perfect opportunity.

The location is an idyllic farm outside an Amish community in Tennessee. Julie, with her two children, joins Susan and her teenage daughter for a summer adventure. Susan needs to succeed in order to become self-sufficient after an ugly divorce, Julie needs to slow down long enough to remember what her priorities are and regain a sense of purpose and meaning. It becomes clear from the start that "living simple" is no simple matter. With the camera watching every move, Susan's drive for perfection feels a lot like what they left behind, while Julie suddenly finds herself needing to stand up for slowing down. With each new challenge, their season of "going Amish" gets more and more complicated, as each woman learns unexpected lessons about herself and her family.

Unexpected, but Good
4 stars By Margot, Sep 16 2014
This was not really what I thought it would be, having read the back cover, but it was still very interesting and thought provoking. Susan was the star of the reality TV show, but Julie was the main character of the book, the one who truly embraced the concept of a simple life, and the one whose lessons most effected me. I was disappointed by all the compromises made under cover of the "Almost" in the title. It would have been more challenging for them to go totally Amish, including the humility and peacefulness of that culture. I did enjoy seeing Julie realize that being an enabler for others is a ministry in itself, and a valuable one. It was great to see the changes in the children and family dynamics brought about by a lack of 'technological noise.' I really appreciated the wisdom of Rosemary and the gentle way she shared it.
I would highly recommend this book.
