Product Description

Izzy Mueller is an exceptional listener and gifted caregiver. She's also a talented seamstress. As the young woman sits with her elderly patients, she quietly sews as they share their stories. She's content with her life until circumstances reconnect her with someone she once loved. Zed Bayer, a Mennonite, is not what her family is hoping for in a spouse, and his creative interest in filmmaking is definitely at odds with her Amish upbringing.

Publisher's Description

Bestselling authors Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould provide an unexpected surprise in The Amish Seamstress, Book 4 in the Women of Lancaster County series, which tells the stories of young Amish women as they explore their roots, connect with family, and discover true love.

Izzy Mueller is an exceptional listener and gifted caregiver. She's also a talented seamstress. As the young woman sits with her elderly patients, she quietly sews as they share their stories. She's content with her life until circumstances reconnect her with someone she once loved. Zed Bayer, a Mennonite, is not what her family is hoping for in a spouse, and his creative interest in filmmaking is definitely at odds with her Amish upbringing.

As Izzy is swept up again in Zed and renews her friendship with his sister, Ella, she begins to ask questions about her own life--her creative longings and historical interests, her relationships and desire for romance, and most importantly, her faith. What is the path God has for her? Can she learn from the past of both her family's and Zed's--or must she forge a completely different future of her own?

    This review was written for Amish Seamstress, The - eBook.
    Bestselling authors Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould provide an unexpected surprise in The Amish Seamstress, Book 4 in the Women of Lancaster County series, which tells the stories of young Amish women as they explore their roots, connect with family, and discover true love.

    Izzy Mueller is an exceptional listener and gifted caregiver. She's also a talented seamstress. As the young woman sits with her elderly patients, she quietly sews as they share their stories. She's content with her life until circumstances reconnect her with someone she once loved. Zed Bayer, a Mennonite, is not what her family is hoping for in a spouse, and his creative interest in film making is definitely at odds with her Amish upbringing.

    As Izzy is swept up again in Zed and renews her friendship with his sister, Ella, she begins to ask questions about her own life--her creative longings and historical interests, her relationships and desire for romance, and most importantly, her faith. What is the path God has for her? Can she learn from the past of both her family's and Zed's--or must she forge a completely different future of her own?

    My Review:

    This was quite the sweet story. Izzy is the girl next door type that you can't help but fall for, and Zed is the man she can never have. Forbidden romances tend to be the stuff of Amish fiction, and I can honestly say that I actually enjoy that particular element about the genre. Something forbidden in general appeals to everyone, but it is definitely prevalent in stories about the Amish.

    The authors easily bridge the distance between Zed and Izzy. Amish versus Mennonite certainly puts them in a quandary when it comes to romance, but it is always interesting to see which way the tides will turn. There was lot's of genealogical details and history that made this novel what it is, and I have to say that was my favorite part of the story. A wonderful conclusion to the series, An Amish Seamstress captures the voice of The Women of Lancaster County, brings their story to a close, and leaves you touched by all you have read.

    This book was provided by the publisher for free in exchange for an honest review.

    Though this is the last in The Women of Lancaster County series the authors have done a wonderful job of making The Amish Seamstress read well as a standalone. However, readers familiar with any of the other books (The Amish Midwife, The Amish Nanny or The Amish Bride) will be thrilled at the grand reunion of characters that takes place in this one.

    Writing from a first person point of view is perfect for Izzy's story. I loved being inside her mind as she puzzled out runaway emotions and analyzed herself to death. So very 'young woman entering adulthood'! But her growth is phenomenal and well worth the read.

    I was also totally captivated by the genealogical aspects in this story. It's a unique way to add mystery to a plot and it kept me on my toes until the very last family history piece fell into place.

    A stellar conclusion to the Women of Lancaster County series.

    This fourth book in The Women of Lancaster County series unites the women we've come to know and love in the first three books, although The Amish Seamstress could stand alone. Izzy Mueller, a quiet, introverted crafter, often feels out of place in her lively Amish family and retreats to her little workroom to sew. Her best friend, Mennonite Zed Bayer, is into film making but rather than driving them apart his work draws them together. Izzy creates authentic historical costumes for his documentaries.

    Zed's movies explore their entwined family history, going back to Switzerland and immigration to America. Izzy assists with background research, which leads her to the discovery of a hidden struggle and heartache among her ancestors. She pursues further details, but they seem elusive. In the meantime, her caregiving skills are put to use serving others.

    Her search for the truth helps Izzy grow and come to know and understand herself better and to gain a clearer picture of what her future may hold. She knows she and Zed will always have a relationship, but will it be more than just good friends? He desires for her "life to be as rich and full—of experiences, of learning, of pushing (her)self—as his." As they seek God's will, they will find fulfillment.

    Like the other books in the series, this novel contains discussion questions, which thoughtfully add depth to the reading experience.
