An Amish Journey-Set Free- Volume 1-Coming Home Review

An Amish Journey-Set Free- Volume 1-Coming Home
By George Michael Loughmueller

About the book:

His last chance was their only hope.
In this new periodical short story series from Trestle Press, a man on the brink of self-destruction is given the opportunity to start over.
Allan Howarth is unhappy in work, in marriage, in family. He is stressed by finances and relationship problems. When a letter arrives from a long forgotten friend, Allan suddenly finds an opportunity to help himself, his wife and their two teenage children.
The letter presents Allan with a unique possibility which leads him on an Amish journey.

My Review: 

Allan Howarth’s family is the average American family.  Allan is a family man with a wife and two kids.  He and his wife seem disconnected and have the not-so-perfect marriage.  His two teenagers are spoiled with the latest gadgets.  They are the materialistic family. 

As I read this book, it reminded me of the typical American family.  Everyone tries to "Keep up with the Joneses."  They want the biggest televisions, the newest phone, the new gadget, etc. 

Allan realizes how disconnected his entire family is from each other.  He is looking for a change.  One day, he receives a letter from an old friend that will change his life.  He goes to investigate and discovers a different a new start for his family.  He has the opportunity to move his family on a plot of land to join an Amish community. 

I don’t think I could completely live like the Amish, but we are forced to live frugally and modestly.  I found this book to be an eye opening story.  Anyone who takes the time to read this book will be inspired to change, even if it’s a small change.
