My Review:
What can say about this cute little pocket guide except that I loved it! Mindy Starns Clark brings us fasinating facts about the Amish and their beliefs. I am a HUGE fan of Amish, Amish quilts and Amish fiction novels, but this little fact-filled pocket sized guide was fun to read! She really does her research and puts it all together is this one adorable little book.Clark gives us an inside look with this little guide, including some quotes straight from the Amish themselves! Learning about them in more fact detail was an experience for me, and I am completely in awe. I love the cover on the front, and I love everything from front page to back page. It is a little pocket guide that I will put in my purse and keep it close at hand, as I am never bored with the fun facts about the Amish!  5 stars to Mindy Starns Clark and her little guide to the Amish!
