Young Jason Esh follows the maneuvers and happenings of the life around him in A Time to Live as his father threatens to leave the Amish faith and his grandfather decides what to do about it. From Canada to Honduras, a family matter turns into a community matter and life will never be quite the same. This is the penetrating story of the Amish psyche from someone who lived it. It is a frank assessment of both the beautiful Amish ideals and the irksome legalisms that often undermine those ideals.
