Lydia's Hope

Berkley: Penguin Group (USA). (Lost Sisters of Pleasant Valley, Bk. 1). Jun. 2013. 352p. ISBN 9780425253564. pap. $15. CF
Lydia Beachy was raised by her aunt and uncle after her parents were killed in an accident when Lydia was only an infant. When she learns that she has two sisters, one raised Amish and one raised English, Lydia sets out to find them. Meanwhile, her husband, Adam, has lost his job and the couple must draw on their faith to help them make the right choices.
VERDICT As always, Perry shares the Amish culture in a manner that draws the reader in, with rich descriptions and even pacing, creating characters that readers want to see succeed.
