Review of Kate Lloyd's Pennsylvania Patchwork

About Pennsylvania Patchwork:

Seattle native Holly Fisher is smitten by Lancaster County, its simplicity and her long lost relatives. In the sequel to bestselling Leaving Lancaster, Holly embraces the Amish culture, learning to slow down to see what --- and who --- really matters.

Meeting the family that her mother had kept hidden from her, Holly comes face to face with her real life and blood legacy. She also falls for the charming Zach, a handsome Mennonite veterinarian who is everything she's ever wanted in a husband: confident, kind, successful, and authentic. And Zach proposes marriage. Is this too soon? Is this the right choice? Mother and Amish grandmother think she's rushing into too much of a lifestyle change. Holly is in love with Zach and that precludes everything. Until she meets an attractive Amish man. And an old suitor shows up.

Pennyslvania Patchwork is the moving, richly told story of one woman's heart, her faith and trust, and the choices she makes. Never easy, but one choice can change your destiny.

My Review:

This was a great Amish book, it didn't overwhelm you with the strictness of the Amish.  I liked this book better than the first book in the series, which was Leaving Lancaster.  Holly was more likable in this book than in the first.  The book was very well written, which made it flow really well.  Once I got into it, I didn't want to put it down and it kept me up pretty late, because I wanted to know how it ended.  Holly has three suitors, which one will she choose.  There was some mystery in it also; Nathaniel is summonsed to Ohio because his cousin thought that his deceased wife was living there, what will this mean for his and Esther's upcoming wedding.  Also, Esther receives a box from Samuel's old Army buddy, what is the deal with that.  And there is a little humor with Anna, she is a very heartwarming character.  We are also introduced to some new characters in this story.  Overall a great job Kate, I thoroughly enjoyed this book, looking forward to the next one, as some things were left unresolved.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
