Book Report: Romance genre blooms with 'Rumspringa'

Email

I hail from Whitehall where there's a large settlement of Amish who moved in forty-odd years ago.

My father first worried about their presence because he was a businessman on Main Street and he said, "All they'll buy is salt and black thread."

He was wrong, of course, but I always think of him when I see young Amish brides at the IGA buying TV dinners and their husbands letting go their agricultural traces to become painters, carpenters and roofers (good ones, too).
