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?

    Jacob Miller is traveling to Seymour, Missouri, to help out on a farm belonging to a distant cousin whom hes never met. Several Amish boys will be traveling from Seymour in the early spring or summer from Pennsylvania to as the Bishop says bring new blood to the small district. Becky is the first person Jacob meets and she is not so friendly wondering what he has done so bad that his parents would send him in mid-February before the others that will be coming. Jacobs plans are to help out then return to marry his Susie during wedding season. Sparks fly and adventure is around each corner as Jacob and Bex (as Jacob calls her) clash over and over. Sparks fly but are they the kind that come from friction or attraction? Will Jacob still plan to go back to Susie? This is a sweet story that keeps you turning pages hoping everything works out! A must-read!

    Secrets, Insecurities, and Courage

    I fell in love with both Becky and Jacob within the first few pages of this story. Author Laura V. Hilton brings her characters to life with all its complexities. Becky carries the burden of her failure every moment of every day. She has knelt and confessed, but without real forgiveness from the community. As a result, she is bowed but not quite broken. I cheered for her when her back straightened and she stood up for herself.

    Jacob was responsible for some of that courage as he challenged her to enjoy life again. Of course, his own problems interfere with his quest to bring a light to Beckys eyes, with secrets and insecurity blocking their back-and-forth dance toward true love.

    This story held me captive, and I thoroughly enjoyed my little visit with the Amish of Seymour. I look forward to reading the rest of this series. Patchwork Dreams earns five stars.

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!
