When a letter arrives from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, Angela and Rose decide to visit Aunt Silvia, their mother's Mennonite sister, in the heart of Amish country. This vacation could provide the opportunity both sisters need to sort out their issues. And yet instead of finding a new way of connecting with each other, Angela and Rose discover surprising family secrets that add to their strife and threaten Rose's romance with a new beau.

Through it all, the two sisters must find the faith necessary to face their personal problems and allow God to restore hope and healing to their hearts and relationship as only He can.

My thoughts:
I am enjoying this new series by Kate. As you are reading this you are finding out secrets about Angela and Rose's family right along with them. I did not want to put the book as I could not wait to see what they would find out next. It was also nice to see the mix between the Mennonite/Amish world and the English world. The characters were great people to get to know and to travel along with in their journey. In this story the author explores relationships in a way that is touching and emotional at time. This like the last Amish book is not like your traditional Amish book which made it even more appealing to me. I can't wait to see what the author has in store with the rest of this series.
