Almost Amish~ A Book Review

Proving the Simple Life Isn't So Simple After All
Overcommitted and overwhelmed, Julie Charlton is at the breaking point. She knows she should feel blessed as a mother and wife--but she just feels exhausted. And then, the miraculous happens. Her sister-in-law Susan, a Martha Stewart-in-training, lands the chance to participate in a reality TV series about trying to live like the Amish and needs another family to join her. It's just the break Julie needs.
But the summer adventure in simple living soon proves anything but simple. With the camera watching every move, Susan's drive for perfection feels a lot like what they left behind, while Julie suddenly finds herself needing to stand up for slowing down. Whether it's cooking, cleaning, or dressing differently, each new Amish challenge raises new complications...and soon each woman learns unexpected lessons about herself and her family.

~I enjoyed reading this book for it's easy to follow plot , right now we are so busy I can only read 1 or 2 chapters a night. This is a wonderful, heart-warming book about a Family and the growing together they experience in 3 months time.~

I was sent this book to read and review and all opinions are my own.
