I love this series. These books are easy to read and have such a great story line. I love how God brings people together to help each other. Once I start one of these books, I have a hard time putting them down.
What a great read about how an Amish couple touches so many lives, and how the rebound of this love is passed on. Emma and Lamar have taught quilt classes before in their hometown of Shipshewana Indiana, and decide to do the same while in Pinecraft Florida.
You can see Gods hand in this idea, and dont know if Emma and Lamar realized how much they were going to change a number of lives. Your heart will break for some of them, and rejoice for others. In the end, all of the class participates lives do change, not always how we are hoping, but in the way God planned.
We get to enjoy the beautiful setting of this book, through the eyes of each of the characters. Dangle your feet in surf, enjoy hunting for shark teeth, and just enjoy watching the surf. You never see how interconnected with others we are, and marvel how you are at the right place at the right time to do what God wants, in his perfect timing.
I would love to take a quilt class from this delightful couple, how fun it would be, and not only learn how to quilt, but enjoy the scrumptious treats that are offered. Also, loved the fact that we are updated on all at the end of the book, and can put some closure in their lives, and wish we could join with them more.
I received this book from the Publisher Barbour Publishing Inc., and was not required to give a positive review.
I love Wanda's books. This time I could relate to the characters in the story and I enjoyed how it all came together. This is the third one in the series & I hope there is more to come! Really good book!
The Healing Quilt is a light, easy to read story. This appears to be book three in the Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club but it stood alone just fine. The main characters are Lamar and Emma Yoder Miller. As they host a quilting class, they get to know each of their students on a very deep level and they have a strong desire to meet each person where they are and to love, support and/or help them in any way they can.
Lamar and Emma have a very strong faith in God and quote scripture as they minister to the folks they are teaching. They are positive influences for every person they meet. Their marriage is strong and they seek advice from each other and from God each step of the way. For those of you that have read the other books in this series, you will be happy to see a few familiar characters, as well as many new ones in The Healing Quilt.
Wanda E. Brunstetter has created a story full of strong characters with interesting lives. Their issues are realistic for todays world and their pain and joy is well expressed. I received this book from The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.
