Can a splintered Amish family reconcile? More than anything else, thirty-something Holly Fisher longs for family. Growing up in Seattle without a dad or grandparents, she wonders what it would be like to have a heritage, a place of belonging. Holly is furious when her mother, Esther, reveals a long-kept secret: Holly's grandmother and uncles are still alive and begging Esther to return. And Holly is shocked when she learns that the family she's never known lives on a Lancaster, Pennsylvania, farm-as part of an Amish community her mother once abandoned. Guilt-ridden Esther, terrified to see her mother and siblings, begs Holly to accompany her on a visit to Esther's mother before she dies. But can their journey to a conflicting world heal their emotional wounds and finally bring them home? Set in the heart of contemporary Lancaster County, Leaving Lancaster explores the power of forgiveness, family reconciliation, and love where least expected.

An interesting concept that was made not by the characters of the story. The main characters are a mother and daughter who travel back to Lancaster after the mother reveals that she had lied to her daughter and said that her family had died. The daughter takes the lie as a personal attack against her and her betrayal through out the book is a bit much. She is bratty and to be honest I wanted to reach through the pages and shake her. I almost did finish the book because of her. But I did finish and it was a pretty good ending.
