This true story demonstrates God's faithfulness to an Amish couple. Simon's refusal to submit to the Amish rules stresses his marriage. The bishops demand that Susan, his wife, must obey the rules she promised to keep and to shun her rebel husband. Who was she to obey, God or man? Together they become a perfect team to set their family free from the bondage of "religion". The story is told by their daughter, Naomi, born to them after they leave this close-knit community. These heartbreaking and joyous stories are life-changing and proclaim the mighty truth that God continues to care for and work in the lives of the simple, the wounded, and the brokenhearted. Naomi shares how she came to see the rich, deep, powerful beauty and value in the "silent years" of her mother's life, who courageously lived a broken life for the sake of her divine inheritance, hidden in her earthly inheritance, a basket full of broken dishes.

A Mother’s request fulfilled, because only a loving Heavenly Father could touch Naomi with such a powerfully descriptive book of how a personal relationship with Jesus Christ changes lives for eternity. I was moved to tears of sorrow, yet tears of joy for those released from bondage of man made rules. A saved Father and Mother is an inheritance surpassing any earthly possession. Paul D. Quay

Everyone can relate to some area in this book by Waytogrow on 12/1/11

I hope the author will be publishing more books. I was good to be able to relate to different parts of the book and then find there is always healing in our own broken dreams and hopes.

Great read, hard to put down, Tears and Joy, Would Recommend by Reader95 on 11/13/11

I read this book in just two evenings. The story kept me interested and I found it was hard to put down. The story leads you from joy to sorrow and back again. I was shocked to learn of some of the Amish ways, things they don't make public.
How true Godly love can soften even the hardest of hearts. I will read it again this weekend.
