PA Dutch Summer Read - A Time to Love Review
Recently I was looking for a new book to read. I read a lot of non-fiction. But its nice to take a break from that and go into a different time or place. Although I am not a romance fan per say I do like to read about the Amish. So I chose A Time to Love (Quilts of Lancaster County, Book 1)
I did really enjoy this. It really is a sweet love story. It tells the story of a women Jenny who was injured in war and returns to her grandmothers Amish home to heal. While she is there she see her former love. A widowed Amish man and his three children. Her two worlds are so completely different. Her "English" (what the Amish call non-Amish) world in New York City and the Amish world she shares with her grandmother. So here you have quite the dilemma. Because, as you may or may not know, the Amish set themselves apart from the English. So the worlds cannot mesh together. So.it makes for a interesting outcome.
Barbara Cameron does a great job of telling this delightful story. With Four books in the Quilts of Lancaster County Seriesit would be a great series to start over the summer.
