Book Review - "Pennsylvania Patchwork"

 Book Info 
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:
In Kate Lloyd's "Leaving Lancaster" we are introduced to our heroine Holly whom is introduced to a family she has had hidden her whole life, and not just a family, but an entire way of life as well.  "Pennsylvania Patchwork" is the sequel and continuation of Holly's story as she immerses herself into the Amish culture and community including losing her heart to a man whom she believes she loves.  However, it may seem that not everyone believes she is making the right decisions and Holly is faced with having to make many decisions, none of them easy, but nevertheless necessary.  I have really been enjoying this series as growing up my family would visit Lancaster and the surrounding area, Bird-in-Hand and Intercourse, and I was always fascinated by the Amish culture and wondered what it would be like to be Amish.  However, as Holly finds out although the Amish lifestyle is simple, it still comes with difficult choices. I highly recommend this book to any Amish fiction lover!
