Seasons: The Real Story of an Amish Girl by Elizabeth Byler Younts
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is a personal story of really growing up Amish and living through the Great Depression. This is Lydia Lee's life, or Liddie as she is known. You will feel heart break for the little girl who is starving a good share of the time, and has no shoes or ones with holes in them. She is the eldest of child of a large loving Amish family, and she knows to give everything for the sake of her loved ones. She is often going to bed hungry and cold. She experiences many moves in her young life, and you will be amazed at her perseverance and amazing love of God and her faith.
The story is about the author's Grandmother, and you will smile and cry for all Liddie has endured. A real look at the life of a young Amish girl and her growth to Adulthood.
For anyone who enjoys reading Amish books...this will give you a major insight into their lives in the 1930's through 1940's.
