I loved the way Annalisa Daughety had the two stories running parallel and then blended them as the characters met and became part of each others lives. Until then, keeping up with all the characters was a little tricky. I also loved that it was an "Englisher living in Amish country" story without the usual cultural clashes or look into the Amish way of life. The Amishness wasn't a main feature in the book, which focussed on the characters and the issues they were facing. There was more than just romance too - there was brother-to-brother relationship issues, a stalker who just would not give up messing with people's lives, and much inspiration as characters found faith, forgiveness and personal growth along the way. It was all very enjoyable and I am looking out for more books in the "Love Finds You" series.
I loved this book!!!!!!!!! I read it in just a few days. Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down! Wonderful book...I would recommend this book to anybody looking for a great book to read! I love that there are two stories and that really keeps you interested. I hope she will write a sequel to this book so we can find out what happens with the brother.
What a delightful read this book was. This book will grab your interest from page one. I love how the author wrote about two very different, yet two very similar young women. One lives in Charm, Ohio, and the other lives in Atlanta, Georgia.
Lydia Ann Raber lost her husband to cancer five years ago and is raising her six year old twin daughters Mary and Katie the best way that she can. Lydia Ann owns a Quilt Shop in Charm, Ohio, but it was demolished, as well as several other businesses, from a recent tornado that came through. Lydia Ann makes a decision to take her daughters and go visit her Dad and Step-Mother Leah in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania for the summer.
Caroline DeMarco needing a place of refuge after a terrible tragedy in her life decides to go for a visit to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. The last trip that Caroline and her Mama took together before Caroline's Mama passed away was to Charm, Ohio. They had such a wonderful time visiting there that they decided their next trip would be to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Caroline knew this would be the perfect place for her to take refuge for awhile.
This book is about new beginnings, letting go of the past, faith in God, unconditional love, and hope for a bright future.
