Interview with the hero from Promised to Another by Laura Hilton:

1.  Joshua Esh, tell me the most interesting thing about you. I’m an Amishman bitten by the travel bug. I’ve been to Alaska, Mexico, and other Amish communities in the United States. I traveled from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania to Seymour, Missouri for this story—Promised to Another

2.  What do you do for fun?  I like seeing new places. I like tearing Englischer’s machines apart and seeing the inside of them and learning how they work. I like the Maple Sugar process and I liked learning bee-keeping.

3.  What do you put off doing because you dread it?  Telling the truth.

4.  What are you afraid of most in life?  I’m afraid that the truth will set me free in the wrong ways…that I’d cause shame to my family if the worse possible scenario happened.

5.  What do you want out of life?  Adventure.

6.  What is the most important thing to you?  God. My community. My family.

7.  Do you read books? Sometimes If so, what is your favorite type of book? When I read, I think I’d like to read an adventure book, maybe about smoke jumpers or firemen. Something with lots of men and adrenalin.

8.  If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?  I would have been more careful to consider what my actions might say about me and why.

9.  Do you have a pet? No. If so, what is it and why that pet?  I’m Amish. We have farm dogs, cats, horses, animals…but I didn’t really make a pet out of any of them. Too many other fascinating things to do.

10. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why?   I see no need to travel back in time.
