Publisher's Description

Ever since returning from her rumspringa pregnant and unwed, Becky Troyer has been a pariah in her Amish community in Missouri. Even after the young mother confesses her sin and rejoins the church, her peers continue to shun her, and she despairs the unlikelihood of marrying for love. It seems that her only hope is to eventually marry a widower with a family of his own. Becky's world changes when Jacob Miller arrives at her family's farm with the understanding that he will help with chores during the summer and then return to Pennsylvania. What Jacob does not know is that his father, who disapproves of Jacob's sweetheart, Susie, sent him away as part of a plan to introduce new blood into the Amish community of Seymour. In addition to his work around the farm, Jacob undertakes the task of cheering up the lovely yet listless Becky, inviting her to various youth gatherings and offering her the only unconditional friendship she's known. As their relationship grows, the two find themselves inexplicably drawn to each other. Will Becky and Jacob overcome their insecurities and self-doubts so that their love can grow, or will Jacob keep his pledge to Susie and turn his back on Becky, as so many others have done?

    Becky Troyer faces a life of raising her child alone without a husband. Who would want her after the mistake she made during her rumschpringe? She is an outcast in her own community. People talk and snicker about her behind her back.

    Jacob Miller arrives at the Troyer farm sent there by his father. Jacob is there with the understanding that he is to help Cousin Daniel with chores for the summer. Jacob soon learns that his father wasn't truthful with him and he was sent away to separate him from his girlfriend Susie.

    What starts out as a friendship between Jacob and Becky soon becomes apparent that they are drawn toward one other.

    Jacob has hopes of courting Becky but will she agree to courting him?

    Becky does not want to be hurt again after what happened to her during rumschpringe. What man would ever be interested in her?

    Will Becky learn to accept God's forgiveness and forgive herself for what she has done?

    Will Jacob give up trying to win Becky's heart?

    I'm happy that the author Laura V. Hilton addresses the issue of a young Amish girl pregnant and unwed. I think at times we tend to idolize the Amish way of living. They struggle with the same issues that we do.

    It was refreshing that the author gave Becky such supportive parents. God's love shines through the way this situation was handled.

    This book drew me in from page one all the way to the end. I did not want to put this book down and read it every spare moment that I had. This is the first book I have read by this author. I am looking forward to reading A Harvest of Hearts, the second book in this series.

    This touching novel deals with sexual sin and redemption. We can learn from the characters' experiences while enjoying the story.

    Will Becky Troyer be able to find true love after her indiscretion? could Jacob Miller, a new young man in the community, actually care for her? God's unconditional love is modeled in this compelling tale in the first of the Amish of Seymour series. Be sure to read the next one too.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Laura V. Hilton
Located in: Arkansas
Submitted: February 09, 2011

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I'm a pastor's wife, a homeschool mom of five children and I love reading.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  That God is the God of second chances. He loves us so much that He doesn't want us to wallow in our mistakes, but He wants to forgive us and shower us with undeserved love.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  I think what hit me most was when I realized that God isn't going to withhold love from us. It was such a wow moment when I wrote that.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  I love reading Beverly Lewis, Susanne Fisher Woods, Mary Ellis, and other Amish authors - plus I have a wide variety of other favorites in other genres. Like Susan Mae Warren's suspense, and Kristin Billerbeck's chicklits, and Tricia Goyer's WWII stories, I could go on and on.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:   Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy Patchwork Dreams!
