My review:
This new book by Kate Lloyd is the third in a 3 part series, Legacy of Lancaster Trilogy.  I have read the other two and it was fun to see when previous characters who you have learned to know and enjoy reappear in this third volume and blend right into this volume.  The book was so well developed that it would also be a great stand-alone book. 

As the book opened, it grabbed me from the first few pages and I knew I was hooked.  I could not put this book down, although I had to sleep, eventually.  Sigh…
As Sally Bingham’s marriage date is quickly approaching, she feels the need to sort through her feelings about the upcoming day.  She is not really sure of her feelings.  Having recently received many emails from an Amish woman, Lizzie in Lancaster County, she decides to go on a little get-away to visit. Just for the weekend… to clear her mind…She arranges to stay at a bed and breakfast, even though her very ill father is not too happy about her plans.
As she arrives, she has a bit of misfortune and things just don't go as she had planned .  Her bed and breakfast is flooded and her car needs repairs.  She is helped by Armin King, a handsome Amish man who introduces her to Lizzie and from then on, things are never the same for Sally.  Lizzie’s family is not your average run of the mill Amish family.  You can see they are people who do not always do exactly as they are taught to do, but rather you can see their true human nature, just like all of us.  They too, have to work at their lives and often learn through trial and error.
Sally finds out some hard truths about people she had trusted for her entire life.  She no longer can feel trust for others and is confused about many things in life that she discovers because of her little week-end visit to Amish country. 
This story is about forgiveness, faith, family bonds and ties that can’t be broken forever.  This book was quite different than any other Amish book that I have read.  I think it is a very worthwhile read for those who enjoy the Amish genre and even those who have never read Amish books. 
This is a 5 star book and I was so sad to see the story end.  I wanted to keep on reading!  Excellent book!
