Second, 90% of the book focused on Esther's self-centered angst and fears that simply became tiresome to me. Holly wasn't any better and we learned early on that they didn't communicate at all. I wanted to say "get over yourself and get on with it!" Even though I can understand the fear and reluctance to confront what Esther considered her embarrassing past after 38 years, it dragged on too long. I realize that the resolution at the end was just setting up the story lines to continue, but I have no interest in continuing reading about those characters even if redemption is finally in the future. Holly's almost immediate acceptance of the Amish lifestyle was very unrealistic. I'm sure it won't be easy for her in the future, but it was just too sudden for me.
Sorry, but I was disappointed especially after reading all the overwhelming positive reviews. I won't be reading the continuing saga.
A fascinating journey which takes the reader through a series of events that bring both happiness and sadness, of discovering truths you may not want to hear, but you must to get to the source of your inner self.
A mother and a daughter have to get to know each other for the first time when they go to an old community, and discover a family that is both hostile and loving.
I enjoyed the character development, of the sadness at the end, but also of the joy that surfaces. The road to discovery is well mapped out, but you cannot use shortcuts to the growth of the characters. They develop at a pace determined by the narrative.
A worthy and highly recommended reading.
Kate Lloyd's writing is also exceptional. No clichés but super creative writing. Thanks for another great book, Kate!

I really enjoyed the book, but must say wanted to slap the 2 main people who are Esther who left the Amish when she was a teenager & her daughter Holly
The way the story went you think that Holly was a teenager not a 30 something she throws her toys out the pram also if she really wanted to know about her father as someone who works with computers she could also her mum who is 50 something well she came across as not a great person also as if she helpless yet telling her daughter what to do
All that said it was a good read just that the 2 people to wasn't that believable but the other people in the book i think more will come out like in most trilogy
I will be reading book 2 & 3 in the series
childish silly daughter, woe-is-me mother. But i liked the remaining characters and the description of Lancaster. The only thing that was odd was the belief that all Mennonites are modern- Not true - the countryside lot are interested n the whole clean living, non-corporate stuff too.
