Book Review: A Daughter's Truth by Laura Bradford

A Daughter's Truth by [Bradford, Laura]

A Daughter's Truth by Laura Bradford

Emma Lapp tries to be the perfect daughter, to earn the loving embrace of her family and her Amish community in Pennsylvania. Yet she can’t quite win her mother’s smile—or her forgiveness for a transgression Emma can’t quite place . . .
Emma knows she’s a reminder of her mother’s greatest sorrow, having been born on the same day Mamm lost her beloved sister. The one bright spot has been the odd trinkets anonymously left at her aunt’s grave each year on Emma’s birthday—gifts Emma secretly hides because they upset her parents. But the day she turns 22, a locket bears a surprise that sends her on an unexpected journey . . .
Searching for answers, Emma travels to the English world and finds a kinship as intriguing as it is forbidden.  But is this newfound connection enough to leave behind the future she’d expected? The answers are as mysterious, and as devastating, as the truth that divides Emma from the only family, and the only life, she’s ever known

My thoughts 

It funny how we view life and never think that things may not be as they seem.   A Daughter's Truth makes me realize that we all have have misconceptions that influence our lives and the way we treat others.  It's not until we address our concerns that we realize things might not be as they seem in our minds.

I loved this story filled with hoped for romance, mystery, forgiveness, and family.  I got so involved reading that I found myself wanting to help Emma and give her my advice. I loved that she went to talk to Miss Lottie and she helped her realize some truths from God.  

What a great read, one that I'm sure you will enjoy!
