The Road Home by Beverly Lewis

Book Description
Grieving the death of her Amish parents and the separation from her nine close-knit siblings, Lena Rose Schwartz consoles herself that her new life in Lancaster County won't be forever. Surely someday soon she will return to her beloved Michigan settlement, including her beau. But even as she holds on to hope for a reunion with those she loves most, she discovers that Lancaster holds charms of its own. Will she find the courage to open her heart to other possibilities?
 
My Review
  This book had wonderful characters and a really interesting plot. It was easy to connect with Lena Rose, and her struggle felt very real. Even though the story started with a very sad event, the book was encouraging. And showed how things can be guided and work out in ways you never seen coming. It had some surprising turns of events that kept me coming back to see what would happen next. The only part I had a hard time understanding was about the farm in the beginning of the book. I am not sure why that had to happen the way it did. But it did set the story up for all of the twists and turns that were coming up. And even with that it was a great story, and is one of my new favorite Beverly Lewis books! I highly recommend it!

The Weaver's Daughter by Sarah E. Ladd

Thursday, May 24, 2018

 
 
 
Book Description
Loyalty has been at the heart of the Dearborne family for as long as Kate can remember, but a war is brewing in their small village, one that has the power to rip families asunder-including her own. As misguided actions are brought to light, she learns how deep her father's pride and bitterness runs, and she begins to wonder if her loyalty is well-placed.Henry Stockton, heir to the Stockton fortune, returns home from three years at war seeking refuge from his haunting memories. Determined to bury the past, he embraces his grandfather's plans to modernize the family's wool mill, ignoring the grumblings from local weavers. When tragedy strikes shortly after his arrival, Henry must sort truth from suspicion if he is to protect his family's livelihood and legacy.
 Kate and Henry both have hard decisions ahead. And when events happen that have the power to change the future of their lives and the lives of many others, their choices may change everything.
My Review
 Sarah Ladd is definitely high up on my favorite author list. But this book is one of her best so far! The characters and story were wonderfully done. And it was easy to relate to Kate. I also loved the mystery in the story, it kept me guessing until the end and had me coming back for more. And a plot that involved weaving? It was wonderful! I love weaving, spinning, and other fiber arts. So one of my favorite authors writing a book about a weaver's daughter was truly a book that I had to read! It was a great book and I highly recommend it.
