Pennsylvania Patchwork Book Review

Oh, I know how much everyone loves to read about the Amish, so I have another really awesome book to read called Pennsylvannia Patchwork written by Kate Lloyd.
Here is an excerpt from the back of the book:
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 Thoughts:

This story was full of surprises for both Mother and Daughter!  I sometimes got the feeling that Holly was a little bit immature and was just trying to sow a few wild seeds when she decided to visit the place that her mother had kept her from and her Grandmother Anna.

She toys around with 2 different men for several months but decides that the one who makes her feel like she can be herself is the one she ultimately decides to stick with and even her mother has found the courage to be with the man that she really loves.

It was a nice love story for both women you will enjoy Holly's antic's between her 2 suitors and in the end she does make the right choice.

Happy Reading!
