Saloma Miller Furlong was born and raised in an Amish community in Ohio. Driven by her desire for freedom and more formal education, she broke away from her community -- not once, but twice. She graduated from Smith College in May 2007 with a major in German Studies and a minor in Philosophy. Her education included research on the Amish with Dr. Donald Kraybill and a semester abroad in Germany. During her thirty-year inner struggle of coming to terms with her Amish past, she has gleaned a better understanding of herself and of her heritage. It is this perspective that she brings to her memoir "Why I Left the Amish" and its new sequel "Bonnet Strings: An Amish Woman's Ties to Two Worlds" to be released on February 3, 2014.
