Love Found in Lancaster County,
This review is from: A Time to Love (Quilts of Lancaster County, Book 1) (Paperback)
Jenny is an Englisher who goes to her grandmother's house in Lancaster, PA to recuperate after several surgeries from a car bombing. She is having problems dealing with her scars and people taking care of her. She is reunited with a summer love, Matthew, who is lives next door and is a widower with three kids. As her memory returns, she pieces together the summer as a teenager when she spent it there with him.
She falls in love with Matthew and his family. His youngest daughter, Annie, is absolutely adorable. Jenny falls in love with her, and the others, instantly as she can relate to them losing their mother. They develop a wonderful relationship that touches her heart in a very special way.
I fell in love with this story because it is not like any other Amish story that I have read. I love the unusual "twist" that Barbara Cameron incorporated into this book. Barbara's writing style is wonderful and all the characters become alive within the book.
I am very anxious to read the second book in this series, A Time to Heal, which is scheduled to be released in March 2011. There was a bonus chapter from the second book at the end of this one but I must admit, I did not read it. I enjoyed the book so much that I know that it would leave me wanting more right away!

Kay, it's a word used by the Amish.
