AUTHOR FEATURED IN DOCUMENTARY "THE AMISH" THAT PREMIERED ON "AMERICAN EXPERIENCE" (PBS) ON FEBRUARY 28, 2012 AND WILL BE FEATURED IN THE FOLLOW-UP DOCUMENTARY "THE AMISH: SHUNNED" TO BE AIRED ON FEBRUARY 4, 2014.

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.
