I had been waiting for another book by Kate Lloyd, so I was glad when A Letter from Lancaster County was released. This book was a page turner as I read about Rose and Angela with all of their rivalry against one another as well as discovering buried secrets about their deceased mother. Aunt Silvia’s strength, faith, determination and love for life added to this amazing contemporary women’s fiction set in beautiful Amish country of Lancaster County. The vivid description of the scenery, actions of characters and conversations had me right in the moment with the characters. Add in romance present, past and rekindled brought moments of tears and victories. 

I recommend this book to readers who enjoy a story that they will savor. I look forward to book two, Starting from Scratch

At the invitation of their Mennonite Aunt Silvia, two sisters, Angela and Rose, travel to Lancaster County. Much of the novel deals with the rivalry between the Angela and Rose. The snappy backchat between them told a lot about each of their personalities. They seemed like real people with real disagreements that could have been set to rest if they had taken the time and patience to talk them out. People are often just like that.

I had only one disappointment: the epilogue seemed tacked on to me. With only one more full length chapter, this novel could have concluded with action and dialogue. As it was, we were simply told the resolution of the sisters’ differences.
