    A Straightforward Account of an Uncommon Friendship

    What stands out for me the most in this book is the frank honesty used by the author in describing the details of his unique friendship with his Swartzentruber Amish neighbors. While much, but certainly not all, of the commentary on the Swartzentruber culture is favorable it is not sugar coated or romanticized, and the criticisms when made are constructive and respectful. I also appreciated how the author is clear in presenting the differences between Amish sects when telling his story, constantly reminding the reader (many of us who tend to lump the Amish together) that the Amish come in many stripes. An all around great read that I would recommend to anyone looking for a true story of a strong friendship with an uncommon twist.
