Blush A Mennonite Girl Meets a Glittering World - Shirley Hershey Showalter

Blush A Mennonite Girl Meets a Glittering World

Shirley Hershey Showalter

  • 1599


This book evokes a lost time in Lancaster Co., Pa., when a sheltered little Mennonite girl with big dreams entered a family and church caught up in the midst of the cultural changes of the 1950s and '60s. With gentle humor and clear-eyed affection, the author tells the story of her first encounters with the "glittering world" and her desire for "fancy" forbidden things she could see but not touch. The major decisions, whether to join the church, and whether to leave home and become the first person in her family to attend college, will have the reader rooting for the girl to break a new path. This book details the formation of a future leader who does not yet know she's being prepared to stand up to power and to find her own voice. (271pp. illus. MennoMedia, 2013.)
