Growing up with an Amish background, Naomi comes from one of the largest extended Amish families recorded in Geauga County, Ohio, and she was the only one not born Amish. The passion for her Amish family grew as she saw the great example of love her parents had toward their relatives in spite of the shunning. Naomi and her husband live in Twinsburg Ohio; they have four children and ten grandchildren.
Basketful of Broken Dishesby Naomi Stutzman
This true story demonstrates God's faithfulness to an Amish couple. Simon's refusal to submit to the Amish rules stresses his marriage. The bishops demand that Susan, his wife, must obey the rules she promised to keep and to shun her rebel husband. Who was she to obey, God or man? Together they become a perfect team to set their family free from the bondage of "religion." The story is told by their daughter, Naomi, born to them after they leave this close-knit community. These heartbreaking and joyous stories are life-changing and proclaim the mighty truth that God continues to care for and work in the lives of the simple, the wounded, and the brokenhearted. Naomi shares how she came to see the rich, deep, powerful beauty and value in the "silent years" of her mother's life, who courageously lived a broken life for the sake of her divine inheritance, hidden in her earthly inheritance, a basket full of broken dishes.

I love reading Amish stories. However, with this one. I could not finish it. Lost interest in it. Its over 700 pages long and I couldn't get past the 200th one. You can't get or feel involved with this book. I didn't want to give it any stars, but you have to. Too many words could describe what I feel about this one.
Love the book! So heartful!
