When Holly Fisher discovers she is part of an Amish family, will her search for identity outweigh her feelings of betrayal?
More than anything else, thirty-something Holly wants a family. Growing up in Seattle without a dad or grandparents, she wonders what it would be like to have a place of belonging. Holly is furious when her mother reveals a long-kept secret: Holly’s grandmother and uncles are still alive. She is shocked to learn that her Amish grandma is begging her mother to return to the family farm in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, the community her mother abandoned during a turbulent era.
Set in the heart of contemporary Amish country, Leaving Lancaster explores unexpected healing, the power of forgiveness, and the bonds of true family.
