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 opinion: What a delightful book with a lot going on. I loved the engaging characters and how each one grew and developed throughout the book. The sisters relationship was very real and it was good to see how they started to build a better relationship as the book progressed.
I have not read a book by this author previously but this was certainly not your run of the mill Amish fiction and I am certainly going to try out more books by Kate Lloyd in the future!
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion,
