With this book, Fraying at the Edge, I recommend that you read the first book in the series, Ties That Bind. It will help you get to know the characters and what is happening within the pages.
With this book, Ariana has found out that her mother is actually English and that she has no DNA ties to her Amish family. In turn, her birth parents want her to come and live with them. Actually, they insist upon it. In turn, Skylar has the option of either going to a treatment center or going to the Amish family to live (and learn about her roots). Neither are looking forward to it, but feel pressured to do so.
So with this book, we have Ariana being introduced to the English life, and Skylar having to live life without electricity and the modern comforts of home. Plus, she finds that no longer is she an only child with a step-sister, but part of a large family. How daunting is that?
All in all, I enjoyed this second book in this series and enjoyed reading of how each girl integrated with their news lives. And of course, the book ends just as the story is getting interesting.
I did received this book directly from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
