THE HALF-STITCHED Amish
Paperback, 312 Pages
Wanda came up with a new twist in this story, Emma Yoder had lost her husband and was having a hard time making ends meet. Her grown children had to pitch in and help so she though up an idea that might bring in a little money for herself. As she loved to quilt as most Amish women do, she decided to see if she could teach Amish quilting. She posted little notes around town and before she knew it she had 6 students and none of them knew a thing about sewing nor quilting. They just all needed some interest outside of their own lives they now lived.
This was really a mixed up group, a man and his wife that was having married problems, a young widower with a baby that needed to finish the baby quilt his young wife had started before she was killed in a car accident. A minister's wife that needed an outside interest beside the problems at her church, a biker that had lost his drivers license and a young woman with all kind of trouble.
Sometime when the group met. Emma tough she was going to have to call someone to stop a fight. They all had troubles and seem to want to pick on each other. But all in all the group needed more that just learning how to quilt, they needed someone to listen. God can work out problems if we will only let him, but he does it in His own time and way. Even Emma might find a new love in her neighbor.
Anytime I receive a book by Wanda Brunstetter I want to jump right in and read, so that is what I did. There is a quilt pattern inserted in the book, how great is that!
I want to thank the Author and Barbour Publishing for sending me this copy to read and enjoy and I choose to review it.
