About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Pennsylvania Patchwork- Holly's Destiny

My Thoughts:

Pennsylvania Patchwork, by Kate Lloyd, keeps the reader constantly guessing.  There is a love triangle- or perhaps more like a love square- as there are four people involved!  Holly Fisher has three men that want to court her and her head is spinning!  Zach, the Mennonite veterinarian, Armin, the impulsive "almost" Amish drifter and Larry, the wealthy Englishman who, out of nowhere, arrives at Holly's home, all want to marry her.  Not only that,  Holly's grandmother, Mommy Anna, is unwell and Holly's mother, Esther, is soon to remarry after losing her husband many years ago.  But can it be that her husband really survived the war?  I'd call this book an Amish soap opera as some of the storyline is a bit far fetched but fun just the same!   The three men fighting over Holly are a riot of testosterone and laugh out loud funny!  Unanswered questions, a mysterious box, and even a missing wife (Is she still alive?) will keep you reading to discover answers.  I truly didn't know what was going to happen next!     Pennsylvania Patchwork is lighthearted, fly by the seat of your pants fun!

About Pennsylvania Patchwork:

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.
