Garrett, Ruth Irene, Farrant, Rick
The true story of one woman's extraordinary flight from the protected world of the Amish people to the chaos of contemporary life Ruth Irene Garrett was the fifth of seven children raised in Kalona, Iowa as a member of a strict Old Order Amish community. She was brought up with rigid rules and intense secrecy in a world where the dress, buggies, codes of conduct, and way of life differed from that of other Amish societies a mere one hundred miles away. Her community uncompromisingly avoided all interaction with "the English"-everyone who lived on the outside. As a result, Ruth knew only one way of life, one way of doing things. This compelling true tale offers a striking look inside a hidden community as a woman comes to terms with her discontent and ultimately leaves her family, faith, and the sheltered world of her childhood. She bravely crosses over to a new and unfamiliar reality in hopes of better understanding her emotional and spiritual desires. The result is a powerful and inspiring story-a search for meaning and the extraordinary lessons learned along the way.Garrett, Ruth Irene is the author of 'Crossing over One Woman's Escape from Amish Life', published 2003 under ISBN 9780060529925 and ISBN 006052992X.
