Litfuse Review:Pennsylvania Patchwork by:Kate Lloyd

Pennsylvania Patchwork
About the Book:

Seattle native Holly Fisher is smitten by Lancaster County, its simplicity and her long lost relatives. In the sequel to bestselling Leaving Lancaster, Holly embraces the Amish culture, learning to slow down to see what  - and who – really matters.
  Meeting the family that her mother had kept hidden from her, Holly comes face to face with her real life and blood legacy. She also falls for the charming Zach, a handsome Mennonite veterinarian who is everything she’s ever wanted in a husband: confident, kind, successful, and authentic. And Zach proposes marriage. Is this too soon? Is this the right choice? Mother and Amish grandmother think she’s rushing into too much of a lifestyle change. Holly is in love with Zach and that precludes everything. Until she meets an attractive Amish man. And an old suitor shows up. 

Pennsylvania Patchwork is the moving, richly told story of one woman’s heart, her faith and trust, and the choices she makes. Never easy, but one choice can change your destiny.

My Review:
 All Holly Fisher wants to do is get married to her love, Zach. But this is going to prove to be harder than it has to be because neither her grandmother or her mother approve. Awaiting her beloved to come to a family dinner. Only to see him speed away for some unknown reason slightly left Holly unsettled and then to meet Armin which is the neighbor's brother and to hear what he had to say about Zach sent Holly into a rage. She has to get down to the bottom of this soon, real soon.

 There are so many relationships in this one. So many twists and turns for a minute there. It was a little hard to keep up with. This is second in a trilogy--Legacy of Lancaster Trilogy. Will Holly finally get to marry Zach? Is Zach hiding something like every one thinks? And what about Holly's mom Esther, is she going to get to marry Nathanial? Will Anna ever give up and let Holly find her own way? This was an amazing book that will keep you on the edge of your seat till the very end.
