Mildly interesting autobiography of a vacillating Amish member.
Born in that culture, he describes his large family, the farm work, the religion, the old fashioned ways demanded of them.... We feel the distance and resistance to the life from early on...but it takes a few attempts at breaking away (often to other Amish/ Mennonite settlements) - and returns to the life he feels he SHOULD want (but doescnt really) before he finally cuts the ties...

As the book wore on, and Wagler increasingly withdrew into himself and away from those who loved him, ranting introspectively (and at times almost obtusely self-centeredly), I found it harder and harder to like Ira. I'm glad he discovered freedom in Christ, but his story was difficult for me to stomach. ( )

The author tells the story of his life. He grew up in an Amish household, but decided he had to leave. He left a note for his parents and slipped out in the middle of the night.
I can't remember too much about this book after reading it 6 months ago. I remember he had to come to terms with his beliefs and that it took him several tries to find peace and a place in society.
And it definitely paints a true picture, not a sugar coated or romanticized view of the Amish. ( )

I listened to this as an audiobook. At times it was interesting as it got into what it is like being Amish and their customs and rituals. My biggest concern with the book was that it turned into this never ending monotonous psycho-drama of Ira Wagler's leaving his religion and way of life.

Like all rebellious youth there will be trials and tribulations as the growing pains set in and the big decisions must be encountered. With Ira it is a never ending spin cycle and he finally gets there and much to my relief. But I was left wondering, as he always seemed to, would he go back to the fold and yet again be driven by his inner demons to leave. And on and on. I had little sympathy for him and much more for the young lady he dragged into the melee then abandoned. ( )

Good narration. Good story. ( )

Fans of all things Amish, as well as those interested specifically in spirituality, will find this a good read. It serves as a nice addition to previous books written on the subject.

This book is dedicated to my mother, Ida Mae (Yoder) Wagler, whose quiet inner strength sustained her through the long and difficult journey that was her life. She never wavered in her deep love for all her children, even—and maybe especially—for her wayward sons, who broke her heart again and again. Her love was her sustaining strength.

No one seems to remember exactly what was going on at the old farm that day.
