Laura Bradford joins us at Byrd's Books on July 18th at 7PM 

Byrd’s Books welcomes Laura Bradford as she discusses her new book, Portrait of a Sister, on Wednesday July 18th at 7:00pm.

About the book:
Fraternal twins Katie and Hannah Beiler couldn’t be more different. Hannah is extroverted, and Katie prefers to be by herself sketching. When Hannah moves to New York City prior to the sisters’ baptism in their Amish church, Katie is devastated. Offered an opportunity to visit Hannah, Katie jumps at the chance but finds the city as strange as being on the moon. But Hannah is determined that her sister love the city and brings Katie’s drawings to an art gallery where they are well received. With the possibility of a new life in New York, Katie returns to her Amish community in Pennsylvania, where she must decide what is most important to her. Bradford (“Amish Mysteries” series) explores the challenges facing members of the Amish community—and those yet to be—as they strive to follow the rules issued to the baptized. VERDICT Engaging characters and a tender story line will please fans of Amish fiction, especially readers of Amy Clipston.

About the author: 
As a child, Laura Bradford fell in love with writing over a stack of blank paper, a box of crayons, and a freshly sharpened number two pencil. From that moment forward, she never wanted to do or be anything else. Today, Laura is the national bestselling author of several mystery series, including the Amish Mysteries, the Emergency Dessert Squad Mysteries, the Jenkins & Burns Mysteries, and the Tobi Tobias Mystery Series. Her first women’s fiction novel, Portrait of a Sister, released in June 2018. Laura is a 1982 graduate of St. Joseph’s School in Brookfield and a 1986 graduate of Immaculate High School in Danbury.
