Summer Reads: A Letter from Lancaster County

Harvest House Publishers; 336 pages; Buy Link; Blog Tour

Now available from Harvest House Publishers is  A Letter from Lancaster County, book one of the Lancaster Discoveries, by bestselling author Kate Lloyd.

The novel centers on Angela, a wife to a successful lawyer and the mother of two children, who had recently lost her own mother. Despite her comfortable lifestyle, she is anything but happy. Her younger sister, Rose, is an unmarried businesswoman, who wants to be closer to Angela, as the two have been estranged.

After receiving a letter from their Aunt Silvia, a Mennonite, the sisters take a trip to Lancaster County. While it seems like a mini-vacation at first glance, the two sisters uses this time to mend their relationship, and unveil a buried family secret.

Final Thoughts: I meant to have this review posted yesterday, but due to lack of time I had to push back writing the review until today.

Anyhow, A Letter from Lancaster County started out a bit rocky for me. There was just something about the narration that just didn't connect with me right away. Around page 75 or so, I finally got interested in the plot. As with the story, it took me several chapters to get interested in the main characters, Angela and Rose.

Overall, A Letter from Lancaster County is a decent novel, despite the fact that I had issues with the narration and the pacing. However, I'm still recommend other readers to give it a try.
