 A Letter from Lancaster County
About the Book:

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 Review:
 This book is a perfect mix of English and Amish lives. If you are someone that isn't quite sure about Amish fiction I suggest reading this book. This story gives you the perfect perception from an English point of view. I really enjoyed it. I can read this and enjoy it at 40 years of age but I really think my 20 year old daughter could too. Great story and great characters too! This is book one in the Lancaster Discoveries series.

 Angela and Rose are your typical English sisters, they have a very strained relationship. For one, their mother just passed away, one has a strained marriage while the other longs to be married. It doesn't take very long to see why their relationship is the way that it is. The two of them both see that they need to find a way to reconnect but, how? Then a break comes in the way of a letter from their Amish aunt, Aunt Silvia. So the sisters decide to look at this visit as a vacation to reconnect, and that they do.

 They start to see that they may actually like each other a tad but many things start coming up in their family that deserves a little digging into. Things start changing for both of the sisters. Hopefully, God can fix the issues they both have with life and with each other and hopefully Aunt Silvia will be the way this all comes together.
