At age twenty, Saloma Miller left behind her Amish community in Burton, Ohio, and boarded a night train for Vermont, where she knew no one. Soon, however, a vanload of people from her community, including the Amish bishop, arrived to take her back into the fold. Saloma's freedom came to an abrupt end when she went back home to Ohio with them. Thus began a years-long struggle of feeling torn between two worlds: would she remain Amish and embrace the sense of belonging and community her Amish life offered, or would she return to the newfound freedom she tasted in Vermont?

Bonnet Strings offers a universal story of overcoming adversity and a rare look inside an Amish community. Readers will find in it a true story: of woundedness and healing, of doubt and faith, and of the often competing desires for freedom and belonging.
