My Review

I wanted to like A Letter from Lancaster County. The cover is nice — but I’m afraid that (and the Seattle references peppered throughout) was the nicest part for me. Angela and Rose spent so much of the book bickering, I quickly tired of them and found myself skimming until the end just to find out the novel’s ultimate resolution.

The faith element hinted at on the back cover was just that, a hint; the promise of God’s healing got little “screen time”, overarched instead by sibling rivalry. I also felt that Angela’s fangirling over Glenn — when she was clearly married, despite her marital health or lack thereof — was unnecessary and completely out of place for a Christian novel.

I received a free copy of the book from Litfuse Group. All opinions are my own.
