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.

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.

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!
