Betrayed and Rejected: The Story Behind The Bergholz Amish Hair Cuttings (Paperback)
In August 2012, sixteen members of an Amish community in Bergholz, Ohio, stood trial in a federal courtroom for crimes committed against members of other Amish communities. The world watched in stunned silence as witnesses revealed details about what happened behind closed doors. How did an otherwise peaceful community implode from the inside out?
Within the pages of Betrayed and Rejected, Linda Shrock, former member of the Bergholz Amish and a daughter of the Bergholz community leader, tells her story about growing up Amish and the behind-the-scenes events that led up to the hair and beard cuttings within the Amish community.
