This book grew out of a son's loving desire to know his father, an Amish entrepreneur. The quest was daunting, since Tobias J. Stutzman died in a car accident when the son Ervin was three. Ervin delved into a pool of communal memory and peeked into closets with shelves of family secrets. The search revealed tangled strands of relationships, woven by father Tobe's ambition through the warp and woof of family, church, and community.

I liked the book - it is good easy flowing reading and really give a good insite to life of the Amish.
I have not quite finished reading this one, however I did not find it as interesting as others I have read. It did explain a lot about their faith and brought back memories that I remember happening during my lifetime about rationing and war. When I finish it I will read, "Emma, A Widow Among The Amish.
