Fewer than one hundred outsiders have joined the Amish since 1950--and stayed. Marlene Miller is one of them. In this memoir, Miller recounts her unhappy and abusive childhood, how she threw herself into cheerleading and marching band, and how she falls in love with the gentle young Amish man who helps lace her ice skates. In Called to Be Amish, you'll follow the author on her unusual journey. Turning Amish wasn't always an easy path for Miller. Following a series of personal tragedies and the strain of farm life, she came close to walking away from it all, yet nearly fifty years later, she's still living out God's call as an Old Order Amish woman.
