My Review!

I love surprises, and this book was certainly a very sweet surprise.  Expectation at first glance…a romantic lightweight set in gentle Lancaster county. City girl falls for a buggy driving Amish hunk and sets aside all her sophisticated ways to embrace life on the farm.  A nice read for the beach. What I discovered was a story about estranged families, facing past mistakes and looking for the hope in the future.

Rose and Angela, two sisters long separated by past issues, come together in rural Lancaster to visit an aunt they have not seen since childhood. Through the gentle guidance of a loving Aunt and her eclectic group of friends, a trunk of old memories of their mother and a handsome man, who is still on the fence about the Amish church, they argue, scheme and eventually find peace with both the past and the future.

An easy to read summer book which offers the beautiful romance of Amish country and a story that offers enough twists, turns and complete turn around to keep you invested until the very last page

  1. How very sweet and kind of you share this review and giveaway! I was born and raised close to Lancaster, Pa. and lived in Gettysburg for some time years ago. My paternal Grandparents and other relatives lived in Lancaster, I spent much time there as a child. I would love to win this book and the Amish quilt! If I am not so blessed, I will definitely purchase this book. Thank-you so much!

    1. I grow up in Philadelphia so we would visit Lancaster from time to time. I definitely did not appreciate as much as a child but now I would love a relaxing visit now! The quilt looks wonderful doesn’t it?

    1. It is such a lovely part of the country to visit. I have not been for many years but we live pretty close now. Now that the Princess is getting older I think she would enjoy it as well.

  3. This sounds lovely. I only just learned in the past year that my family heritage is Mennonite, going back to 1500s Switzerland and coming to Lancaster County. So now I’ve been spending time learning more about the religion, traditions and all. Please do enter me in this! It would be fun.
