Kate Lloyd's Forever Amish


My Thoughts
This book was interesting in that it took a premise I had never seen done, in Amish books and built around it.  The characters in this book did puzzle me a bit, they seemed a "bit out of character" for the general Amish story.  Lizzie was sneaky and at times she would seem stressed by the bishop and at other times too nonchalant about him. It just struck me odd. Overall the bishop was one of my favorite characters, while he looked stern, he was a kind man.  The story was enjoyable, a bit scattered and parts too quickly developed, while other parts lagged a bit.  I did find that uncharacteristic premise the best part of the book.  I give this book 4 stars for that fact alone. Kate Lloyd took something that I have never done in an Amish story and made an enjoyable story from it. 4 stars.

About the Book: 
The final book, Forever Amish, in Kate Lloyd's Legacy of Lancaster trilogy introduces us to a young woman who is questioning her future as she uncovers a shocking secret about her past.

It's the last thing she expects to find. Sally Bingham needs some time away to sort through the changes in her life and to rethink her upcoming marriage. Despite her ailing father's hesitations, she takes off for a bed and breakfast in Lancaster County for a weekend away. But her best-laid plans leave her in a near collision with a bishop's buggy and in the home of a mysterious Amish woman named Lizzie. Lizzie introduces her to a different perspective on life, a charming farmhand named Armin---and opens a Pandora's box that will forever change Sally's life.
