A Letter from Lancaster County (Lancaster Discoveries) - Kate Lloyd

This is basically the story of 2 English sister. They are not Amish but the story does take place in Amish country with the Amish people. The 2 sister Angela and Rose have always been rivals but they do try to get along but being totally different it doesn't always make for a smooth relationship. 

 

Angela is married with kids all though she is not happy with her life or relationship. Rose is single and looking for a life that includes a husband and children.  They are in their mid to late thirties and know they are kind of running out of time. Their mother has just passed away and they receive a letter from their Aunt  Silvia. Who is their mothers sister and is a Mennonite living int he heart of Amish country.

 

The sisters decide to go visit Aunt Silvia. While there they find out more about their Mother's past, and take a deep look at themselves. As well as meeting Glenn an undecided Amish man. He is in his late 30's and has still not decided to join the Amish Church or not. Both women fall hard or him, but can either one of them ever have him or is he connected in ways that there should be no intimate connection?

 

The books chapters alternate between Rose and Angela's point of view and at times got a bit confusing. The book could of been a bit better if the the women weren't always either whining and complaining about their lives, or insulting each other. Sibling rivalry can be pretty bad I get that but in the book it is a constant thing. 

 

With a lot of series the first book is either awesome or not so great. in this case it is the not so great. i will be giving this series a 2nd chance with the 2nd book in the series. I have read other Kate Lloyd books and enjoyed them very much, so I don't want to count this series out just yet. 

 

I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.
