The latest book in the Legacy of Lancaster trilogy, Forever Amish introduces us to a young woman about to uncover a shocking secret and find an invitation to a new way of living. This is a story of forgiveness, legacies, and the ties that bind through generations.
It’s the Last Thing She Expects to Find.
Sally Bingham needs some time away to sort through the changes in her life and to rethink her upcoming marriage. Despite her ailing father’s hesitations, she takes off for a bed and breakfast in Lancaster County for a weekend away. But her best-laid plans leave her in a near collision with a bishop’s buggy and in the home of a mysterious Amish woman named Lizzie. Lizzie introduces her to a different perspective on life, a charming farmhand named Armin— and opens a Pandora’s box that will forever change Sally’s life.
Sally decides to visit Amish country in Lancaster county. She keeps getting emails from a Lizzie Zook about buying one of her corgis. Lizzie just won’t take no for an answer, so Sally is going to straighten her out once and for all.
It all becomes even more confusing when Sally arrives and ends up staying with Sally’s family. Everyone seems to be okay except the father is a real grouch. Then there is that hunky Armin who lives on their property.
It doesn’t take long for Lizzie’s family to turn Sally’s world upside down. A lot of anger and confusion are stirred up around the kitchen table, and it doesn’t look as if it’s going to have a happy ending.
On top of everything, Sally’s snotty fiance’ Donald has vandalized her home. It looks as if he’s out and Armin’s in, but how can that happen when he’s Amish and Sally’s Englisch? Maybe hiding out in the Sunshine Secondhand Store will give Sally time to figure things out.
Thank you, Ms Lloyd, for another great book. I’ve enjoyed your Legacy of Lancaster Trilogy.
