Berkley Trade Lydia's Hope, Lost Sisters: Pleasant Valley Series #1

Three sisters who were separated when their Amish parents were killed in a buggy accident learn of each others' existence and are eventually reunited. In Lydia's Hope, Lydia Beachy is married to Adam and has two children. Lydia is devastated when an aged aunt blurts out that Lydia has two younger sisters: Susanna, an Amish woman whose adoptive mother is ailing in a nearby town; and Chloe, who was raised as an English woman by her wealthy maternal grandmother in a Philadelphia suburb. Although Lydia seeks out Susanna, she realizes that now is not the time to reveal their relationship. She sends an Amish-raised friend who has been living in the English world, Seth Miller, to seek out Chloe. But Chloe has been raised with strong prejudices against the Amish and wants nothing to do with her supposed Amish sisters. Meanwhile, Lydia's husband Adam has lost his job and is increasingly anxious about his ability to support his family. Adam must find new courage, and Chloe must open her heart, before Lydia can mend her marriage and find a common bond with her long-lost sisters.

Lydia’s Hope by Martha Perry is an Amish Inspirational fiction that will catch and keep your attention. This book was very hard to put down. Lydia Beachy was raised by her Aunt Anna and Uncle Joseph after her parents were killed. She has no recollection of her life before she comes home from the hospital after the accident. She marries and is raising her own family when her Great Aunt Sarah accidentally mentions her two siblings she knows nothing about. Her world is turned up side down, she is hurt and angry her parents and the whole Amish community has kept this a secret. To make matters worse her search for her sisters leads to a strained relationship with her husband Adam who also has a secret. Can they overcome and find their way back together? Her search leads her to her sister Susanna, who was adopted by another Amish family and lives close by. But she is unable to reveal to her they are sisters. She enlists the help of her neighbor Seth who has lived among both the Englisch and the Amish to find Chloe. Her search for Chloe who was raised by her Englisch grandmother leads her to a foreign world full of prejudice. Seth finds her in Philadelphia. Can Chloe disregard everything she has been taught about the Amish to have a relationship with Lydia? I have been a fan of the author Martha Perry’s Love Inspired book for awhile but this is my first Amish book I have read by her. It was well written and a great book, definitely 5 stars. I can not wait to read another.
