Pennsylvania Patchwork
By Kate Lloyd

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.


Finding her grandmother and a way of life that was kept from her has Holly in a new home that becomes immersed in drama.

She falls in love with Zach, but her family has some doubts about her marrying a Mennonite man. Then two other men come along to really confuse the issue.

It’s difficult to figure out what happens next in this book. That’s one reason I like it.

As Holly said, her life is truly like a soap opera. She and others have decision to make – decisions that could change a person’s destiny.

Although this is a sequel, it is a good stand alone read. I do want to read Leaving Lancaster (book one) and am looking forward the reading the last book in this trilogy.
