Review: Growing Up Amish

New review just out on Growing Up Amish, recorded for Christian Audio:

"During his teen years, Ira Wagler left home for the first time, turning his back on his Amish faith and family. After working on a cattle ranch for several months, he came back home, the first of many returns and exits. Verner’s strong, midwestern tones capture this memoir so authentically that we feel as if the author is reading his meandering reminiscences. Verner brings both wistfulness and humor to his reading, especially when recounting Wagler’s youthful mischievousness, such as when he and his cousins drove a car for the first time and went to live outside the Amish community. Appropriately unnerving sadness enters Verner’s voice when he speaks of more somber incidents in Wagler’s life, including a broken marriage engagement, a casualty of his decision to leave the fold. Slight pauses mark chapter breaks in this “true story of one man’s quest to discover who he is and where he belongs.” For listeners who favor Christian nonfiction and poignant memoirs."
