And I thought
This was my first introduction to Kate Lloyd.  I've seen a few of her books in the past but never had the opportunity to read one. 

I have a suspicion that A Letter from Lancaster County was a little different than some of Kate's other works.  

The story(s) of the two sisters writing letter back and forth will keep the reader thinking and on your toes trying to keep up with the story.    

There is friction between the two sisters because of their different 
'beliefs'.  One being Amish and the other living in the 'English' world.  Meaning someone that is not Amish.  

I always like a story about hope and redemption.  It's refreshing to read stories that are fresh and clean and leave me with a happy heart.  

I look forward to the chance to read more books by Kate Lloyd. 

I received a complimentary copy from Litfuse.
