This is a very enlightening book about Jerry Eicher's childhood. From Canada to Honduras and back to Belle Center, Ohio. He tells you about the life he lived in Honduras why they moved there, the difficulties the Amish encountered, how he loved that country and why they returned to the United States.
I was surprised at some of the things and could relate when I compared my own childhood to his story. I don't like speaking in front of people, I even passed out when I was a freshman in high school when I had to give an oral report. That is not the only area in our lives where I could connect with Jerry.
I recently read a series of books where some Amish moved to Mexico, these were based on a true story, so when I started reading Jerry's book and found out that most of it takes place in Honduras I was surprised. Surprised because I'm guilty of 'judging a book by it's cover' and title so I don't always read the blurb, I like to try and figure out the story as I go along.
The book was enjoyable and I encourage you to read it. I did think it was kind of slow in parts and seemed to jump around a little but not so much that it was real boring or confusing, there was always something to keep me reading to the end.
