That’s a lot of myths, and I think we busted every one. I know I enjoyed your comments tremendously and I learned a lot from what you had to share. I started Myth Busters because of the questions I receive when I’m at book signings and author talks. We all have preconceived notions, but in fact Amish folk are Christian, honest, hard-working folk … same as you and me. They have chosen to live in a different way, and that’s what makes Amish books fascinating.
I hope you’ve enjoyed Myth Busters. If you’ve missed any of the above, you can access them by scanning down the right column, finding CATEGORIES, and clicking on Myth Busters. All the entries will pop up.
DISCLAIMER: We BUSTED MYTHS to celebrate the launch of my series set in Shipshewana, Indiana. Remember though, my experience may be different from yours or from other books you have read.
