About the book:

If You Leave This Farm The Dream Is Destroyed by Amanda Farmer is about a Mennonite family.  Specifically the teenage daughter Amanda.  The family lives in Pennsylvania on a farm.  Like all Mennonite families Amanda's are very hard workers and never really question or wonder about their way of life.

Amanda's dad yearns to move west--He would like to buy a farm and start a new Mennonite community.  Amanda's family does indeed move to Minnesota.  Amanda and her brother are both very excited about the move and the new adventures it is sure to bring to their family.  After arriving and settling in Minnesota things do not pan out as planned.  The first crop fails and therefore there are losses.
Amanda's dad changes--life in this new community and on a new farm do not hold the great adventure the children had envisioned.
Their father becomes very controlling and expects complete submission from his children.

Farmer has done an excellent job writing the day to day happenings in this Mennonite family's life. 

Very interesting!!!
