My Review

A story about coming to terms with their lives, and two sisters trying to find the way back to their family.
We are in Amish/Mennonite Lancaster, PA area, and become immersed in the local land, traveling by both car and buggy. Sylvia is a Mennonite and has invited her estranged sister’s daughters to come and spend time with her, and for them it is a stretch to be in each other’s company, but Rose and Angela agree.
The Author has these women opening up their hearts and fears as the story unfolds, hidden hurts and facts come to light, and we hope for healing, but some are so deep and held for so long.
We meet Glenn a rebel Amish man, rebel in that he is beyond the age of joining the church and still has his foot on the fence, and yes these sisters are quickly interested in him.
The story being told by each sister in their own point of view, and we travel from one to the other, often seeing the same thing differently.
I personally loved the epilogue, what a great conclusion to this book, and wish more stories added these.
I received this book through Litfuse Publicity Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
