Sus memorias, Fugitiva amish: el gran escape, cautivan hasta al lector más tímido. Sus desacuerdos con las creencias de las tradiciones y la crianza amish produjeron una presión insoportable.

La reacción de sus padres y hermanos es desgarradora. Ya no la consideran hija y hermana y, temporalmente exiliada, Emma encuentra la manera de ser libre. La educación se convierte en su prioridad mientras busca su lugar en este mundo inglés. Esta historia verídica es una visión excepcional de la vida de una joven valiente - Fugitiva amish: el gran escape.

Editorial Reviews

This book tells more about the Amish way of life, their so-called dating, what is expected of women, of men and of children, and thoroughly goes into the many reasons this young girl decided she had to get away from the Amish life in order to grow spiritually and go to college. She had no idea what to expect when she left her parents' home and had to be told by other Amish who had escaped, how to live in a world of freedom where she could decide for herself how she wanted to live. She had to be told to shave her legs and underarms, to use deodorant, and that there were guidelines about how to dress even in the "English" world. The reader feels her excitement when she finally gets a truck and learns how to drive it. She also learns that all English are not to be trusted when she is raped and didn't even know what had happened to her. The Amish don't tell their girls anything about sex or life in general, they learn it when they need to know it. Young Amish women are pitifully unprepared for life. I liked this book because the author wasn't afraid to tell the truth. - Jane A.C.Anyone wanting the truth about the strictest of Amish orders needs to read this book. I stayed awake reading till 12:30. Expect to not put the book down once you start. Emma is a very brave girl as well as determined . - Sarah AyersHeartbreaking, the grief of a human's life without freedom to grow both physically and spiritually. Liked the description of Amish community and it has been the greatest amount of information given. I admire Emma and her courage, her dissatisfaction with their church, determination to be happy and most of all, be able to have peace free from others judgment. Recommend this book and look forward to more of this. - Anna Lozada de Flecha
