About the Author
At the age of 18, Sam Miller made the difficult decision to leave his home and religion to start a new life in the English world and experience different ways of living. Since his time leaving, he has lived in Indiana, Vermont, and New York, working various jobs in construction, farming, and more.
His book, Memoir: Reasons Why I Left the Amish Community, was borne from people’s repeated interest in his life growing up Swartzentruber Amish.
