A Letter From Lancaster County By Kate Lloyd




Two Sisters Get a Second Chance at Life and Love

Angela
Her mother's untimely death, a struggling marriage, a strained relationship with her sister, Rose, and regrets over what might have been haunt her. Despite being a wife and mother, she feels she has little to show for her life.

Rose
Still single, she longs for a husband and children. But Angela has all that and still isn't happy. Rose wants to be closer to her older sister, but she and Angela couldn't be more different. Both strong women, will their sibling rivalry ever end?

* * *
When a letter arrives from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, Angela and Rose decide to visit Aunt Silvia, their mother's Mennonite sister, in the heart of Amish country. This vacation could provide the opportunity both sisters need to sort out their issues. And yet instead of finding a new way of connecting with each other, Angela and Rose discover surprising family secrets that add to their strife and threaten Rose's romance with a new beau.

Through it all, the two sisters must find the faith necessary to face their personal problems and allow God to restore hope and healing to their hearts and relationship as only He can.

My Thoughts...
Was the letter a love letter? Who could it have been from? This is not your normal Kate Lloyd Amish book. It is a contemporary read not an Amish read. The characters are great and the story flows so well that you will have it read in one sitting and be left wanting more.
I loved Aunt Sylvia and wanted to live with her so bad.  Rose is another favorite of mine, you are going to love her as well.
There is some Amish in the book but it not your typical Amish story this is more about the two English sisters. So all of you who are tired of Amish books don't pass this one up because it is not an Amish book.
I loved this book from page one. It is a 5 star book and one not to be missed. I can't wait for book two Starting from Scratch.
