Rumspringa is the time in the lives of Amish teenagers when they’re allowed to experience the life of Englishers [the outside world of the Amish] for a period of time. They’re allowed to do anything and everything their hearts desire to experience; smoking, drinking, travelling on modern conveniences, and anything else they’re forbidden by the Amish religion to do.

Upon their return they’re required to decide how they’d like to live the rest of their lives; the Amish life or that of the Englishers. Apparently when Abraham returns from his Rumsspringa sojourn he’s still enthralled by what he had experienced during his time away from Faith’s Creek, and yet still wants to return to the life he has already experienced there. Since his return, Abraham’s actions has created a lot of commotion by telling everyone what he did on the outside; which forces the community’s bishop to assign someone to counsel him back into their society.

On the first day when Hannah, the sister of his mentor Mark makes him lunch, Abraham questions why she’s doing it and wonders whether she’s being forced into doing it. Having been away, it seems he has forgotten that’s what Amish women are supposed to do for the men who are working hard in the fields.

In reading this story I could help but recall the chorus from the song "How You Gonna Keep 'Em Down On The Farm":
How ya gonna keep 'em down on the farm
After they've seen Paree'
How ya gonna keep 'em away from Broadway
Jazzin around and paintin' the town
How ya gonna keep 'em away from harm, that's a mystery
They'll never want to see a rake or plow
And who the deuce can parleyvous a cow?
How ya gonna keep 'em down on the farm
After they've seen Paree'

While Hannah feels quite happy in Amish lifestyle and is empowered by her Amish faith, who will win the other over to their side. Will Hannah get Abraham to come back into the Amish fold, or will he be able to get her to think out of the box and wonder about the choices she has to make in front of her? I’m not saying. But for having given her readers a story which deals with the commitment to one’s faith, this endeavor by Ms. Miller is getting 5 STARS from this reviewer. ( )
