Series: Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club
Join Emma Yoder Miller, the Amish widow-turned-newlywed, as she leads another quilting class with a new group of unlikely students, all with tattered pieces of their lives that need mending. Members of the patchwork group find friendship, faith, healing, and restoration while gathered around their quilts, under the Father's guiding hands--for only He can take what's ragged and shabby from the lives of His children and turn it into beauty for His glory.

Emma felt the need to remain in their Amish community in Shipshewana, Indiana to teach another 6-week quilting class. As in the past the class filled up quickly, and the Millers were once again put to the challenge. The students were as tattered as the old quilt that one of the students brought to Emma for repairs. Was it possible that those six people could find restoration and peace through the process of quilting? As a custom, the Millers prayed for each of their students as the weeks passed by, and lives would be changed through their compassion and prayer, and unexpected events.
This series of books is quite different from what we're accustomed to in Wanda Brunstetter's writing style. I'm finding this series to be very entertaining, refreshing and amusing. She has added numerous elements to these stories that reveal many facets of our society, and she blends them with the Amish tradition in a very unique way. Wanda is very familiar with Northern Indiana, and has made numerous Amish friends over the years. Her sense of humor comes through in this series in a way I have found very enjoyable. There are numerous plots interwoven throughout "The Tattered Quilt," and the characters are as varied as the quilt designs found in the area. Faith, hope and compassion are very strong currents that run throughout the lessons in quilting and the lives of these characters. Pick up the entire series and relax and enjoy the entertainment these books offer! I thoroughly enjoyed "The Tattered Quilt" as much as I enjoyed "The Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club." In addition, if you have the opportunity, be sure to see the musical based on the first book in the series. It is outstanding!

Amy CVAAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Lovely Addition to the SeriesOctober 6, 2013Amy CVAAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Tattered Quilt is about newlywed Emma Yoder Miller, who yet teaches another quilting class. This new group of students consists of a biker, a fisherman, a disgruntled neighbor, a young Amish girl, a reporter, and another young woman. These students all have their issues that they need to work through. Will they put their trust in God to get past their problems?
I really loved this novel. Being book two of The Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club series, there were many students from book one who make an appearance. Which, for me, was nice to see an "update" on their lives.
I really loved the twist at the end. I definitely didn't see that coming. I would say this book is a great addition to my Wanda Brunstetter collection. I enjoyed it more than The Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club. (Which I loved, too!). Highly Recommended!
