Publisher's Summary

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....

A heartwarming story!

I listened to A DAUGHTER'S TRUTH on audible and loved every word. I've been a huge fan of the author's cozy mysteries but this is my first venture into her non-mystery books. The story-line captured my attention and the author portrays the heartbreaking plight of the protagonist, Emma, in such a sympathetic manner that I couldn't help but become emotionally involved. I also enjoyed the peek into the Amish way of life, which I find fascinating given today's technological society. The narrator was excellent and captured the inflections of the various voices.

So sweet

This was the first book I have read by Laura Bradford and it was a great book. I look forward to many more. The story line was really good I really enjoyed this book. The narrator was one that I haven't heard before but she was fantastic also.
