Book Review by Bree Herron

A story about sisters, second chances and hope. Kate Lloyd created a memorable story in A Letter from Lancaster County, that will resound with readers who believe in second chances.

Angela and Rose are on two different tracks. This makes sense they are sisters not the same person, but they both feel unfulfilled in their respective lives. Rose made me feel like she was a free spirit but looking to find her breeze to settle in life. Angela was a lot more like me as a mother, and feeling at moments that she hasn’t met her glory. Both ladies have to come to Lancaster county to see an aunt, and this is where the story gets great. #Giveaway alert! @KateLloydAuthor is giving away a Kindle Fire, an Amish quilt, and two copies of her new #book! Click To TweetGoing back to the area brings ups feelings and emotions that pull the reader in. I was breathless with excitment on seeing Rose bloom into a new character, and finding love. She needed some love. Both ladies face pieces of their family that were unknown and hidden, making them have questions that needed answers. Both women learn to embrace God, and hear his message, through time they grow to be women of strong faith.

The author did a great job of dialect in this book, the conversations were amazing and led the reader to feel like a fly on the wall hearing these first hand. I was swept into this wonderful county and could smell the fresh breeze, bread and feel the love that was all around. It was a moving start to what I anticipate to be a great series.
