Summary
Julie Charlton is overwhelmed and burned out. So when her sister-in-law Susan invites her to participate in a reality TV series promoting simple living, it seems like the perfect opportunity. Julie and her two children joins Susan and her teenage daughter for a summer adventure on an idyllic farm outside an Amish community in Tennessee. But it becomes clear from the start that "living simple" is no simple matter. With the camera watching every move, Susan's drive for perfection feels a lot like what they left behind, while Julie suddenly finds herself needing to stand up for slowing down. With each new challenge, their season of "going Amish" gets more and more complicated, as each woman learns unexpected lessons about herself and her family
Summary
Julie leaps at a chance to spend a summer in Amish country to help her sister-in-law Susan with a reality television program, an opportunity that forces Julie to confront the cameras, Susan's perfectionism, and her views about family life
