My Scandalous Mennonite Diary

Is There More to Life Than Tradition?

Work. Obey rules. Get married. Raise children to do the same. Is this all there is to life? These are the sorts of questions that I ask myself. Who else can talk to? No one in this house cares about me. They only care about what I can do for them. The truth is, I want more out of life. Much more. I want to feel peace. I want to love and be loved. Is that too much to ask? One day a young man arrives at my door. He's different than the others so I'm tempted by his offer...but, is he the answer that I've been looking for?
***
A story of love and doubt, of rules and grace. My Scandalous Mennonite Diary explores the life of a young woman coming of age in a traditional society.
