Told from the viewpoint of a young girl, An Amish Year tells of Amish celebrations and daily routines season to season and includes general reflections on Amish life and culture. In the springtime, Anna and her family participate in Easter festivities and do spring chores, such as planting the garden and housecleaning. Summer is ushered in by the annual school picnic, and Anna and her family make hay and celebrate her birthday. When autumn arrives, it's time for Anna to begin fourth grade in the one-room schoolhouse, and to help her mother can food for the winter. November is the month for Amish weddings, and Thanksgiving and Christmas follow soon after. Winter days bring family gatherings and feasts, as well as quiet time reading or playing games around the woodstove. In this companion book to An Amish Christmas and An Amish Wedding, Richard Ammon and Pamela Patrick evoke the graceful rhythm of work and leisure of an Amish year.
