Letter from Lancaster County by Kate Lloyd is book one in the Lancaster Discoveries series. Love, faith, longing and sibling rivalry and so much more are found in this book. I have 3 sisters and we are all very different. I could relate to the sibling rivalry. The author has a good story line - and real feeling characters. It's set in the heart of Amish Country - and the descriptions made me feel like I was there. I enjoyed reading this book. I am looking forward to the next installment.
