Summary

Summary

In this insightful memoir, the New York Times bestselling author of Growing Up Amish tries to reconcile with his father, family, and heritage after leaving his faith behind.


With his singular voice, Ira reveals his experience in BROKEN ROADS. Through difficult reunions, struggles confronted, and betrayals revisited, Ira explores burning questions of faith and identity shared by millions, whether Amish or not. Readers may recognize themselves along these paths with Ira, as he grapples with choices, faith, family, the past, and the future.


Ira unapologetically, but compassionately, illuminates the inner world of the Amish community through his story of life after leaving, returning to his Amish father, and how they might mend the broken roads between them before it's too late.

Author Bio: Ira Wagler

Author Bio: Ira Wagler

Ira Wagler was born in the small Old Order Amish community of Aylmer, Ontario. At age seventeen, frustrated by the rules and restrictions of Amish life, he got up before dawn, left a note under his pillow, packed his duffel bag, and left. Over the course of the next five years, he would leave and return home numerous times, torn between the ingrained message that abandoning one’s Amish heritage results in eternal damnation and the freedom and possibilities offered by the rest of the world. Only upon becoming a Christian at age twenty-six did he finally leave the Amish for good. He is currently general manager of Graber Supply, LLC, and Pole Building Co. in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
