Leaving Lancaster ( Legacy of Lancaster #1 )
By: Kate Lloyd
This is my first book to read by Kate Lloyd and it will not be my last. Looking forward to reading the other books in this series. I loved reading Leaving Lancaster and had no problems with the story or the characters. Holly Fisher is thirty-something and lives in Seattle. She has always long for grand parents and family. She has her mother and grew up poor. Holly learns about a deep secret that her mother, Esther has kept from her. Esther tells her that they need to go and see her grandmother that is really sick and maybe dying. Holly gets really mad at her mother for not telling her that she has other family. There is a lot of family that still has a hate for Esther for running off when she was young. Holly's dad died before she was borne so she never had a dad. Esther is from an Amish community in Lancaster Pennsylvania. Esther is scared to death to go back to her old home and town. How will the people treat her. Can Holly, a city lady go to her mother's Amish home and do without her cell phone, laptop, hairdryer and all the things she is used to. Kate Lloyd pens a story of mother and daughter and their relationship . There is a lot of family, hate, forgiveness, healing , and love in Leaving Lancaster. To find out more about Holly, Esther, and how things turns out when they go back to Esther's home town and the farm where she grew up, you will need to read Leaving Lancaster.
I was given a copy of this book from the author for my honest review , and I have given it.
