The Avid ReaderDunedin, FLAge: 45-54Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Heartwarming novel with inspiring ending!September 22, 2016The Avid ReaderDunedin, FLAge: 45-54Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5Sewn with Joy by Tricia Goyer and Sherry Gore is the third book in The Pinecraft Pie Shop series. Joy Miller lives in Pinecraft, Florida (eight square blocks in Sarasota, Florida) with her family. Joy works at the local quilt shop and is also a seamstress. She makes items that are sold in local shops (aprons for Lovinas pie shop). Joy has been seeing Matthew Slagel, the bishops son. Matthew is very picky and opinionated (wants things done a certain way). Then a television company comes to town to film a show based on the Amish. Joy notices them driving around one night, and they seem to be lost. She goes outside to provide them with directions. The Bishop decides that no one in the community will associate with the television crew. Then a large order is placed at the quilt shop (Joy gets a percentage of the sale). Joy goes to deliver the quilts and sees some glaring problems with the costumes being used in the production. Joy is asked to sew the costumes for the cast. Joy sees the extra income as a way to help pay for her fathers experimental medical treatments. They are costly and the family needs every cent. Then Joy is asked to become a consultant on the show. Joy debates taking the job, but she feels that God is directing her to help these people. Joy feels that she is there to help direct them towards God. The downside is Matthew is upset with Joy and does not understand her decisions. Can Joy make Matthew understand her choices? Will Joys work make a difference in the lives of the cast and crew of the production? Read Sewn with Joy to find out!
Sewn with Joy is my favorite book in the series. I liked Joy and her determination. She knew what she was doing was going against the Bishop, but she felt compelled to help these people (God was telling her to help them). How many of us follow our instincts or do what we feel is right? The novel is well-written and has a good pace that makes it easy to read. There is the predictable romance (of course). We also get to catch up with the characters from the first two books in The Pinecraft Pie Shop series who are planning a double wedding (Hope, Lovina and their fiances). While Sewn with Joy is the third book in the series, it can be read alone. The author does a good job of bringing the reader up to date on the Miller family. I give Sewn with Joy 4 out of 5 stars (which mean I liked it). I found the ending to be especially heartwarming and uplifting. I hope there will be more books in The Pinecraft Pie Shop series.
I received a complimentary copy of Sewn with Joy in exchange for an honest review. The comments and opinions expressed are my own.

Joy was a devout CHRISTian, and she is very instinctual when it comes to the spreading of the WORD. She spreads the WAY(JESUS). Those around her stand up and listen. She may not always speak her faith she may just show it. Joy is Amish and is courting Matthew, but when a Production crew comes through town they want to hire, she is the one they hire. In her time of her time with them she spreads the Good News. Matthew is kind of worried of being second fiddle. Joy is able to move on with them and what happens is......you have to read the book to find out with the production crew, will they finish the video, will Joy go, who gets saved, what happens with her and Matt, and what happens to Joy? GO BUY it is worth every Penney. I was given this book for an honest review.
Pam BurkePotosi, MOAge: 55-65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Complex story in PinecraftSeptember 10, 2016Pam BurkePotosi, MOAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Sewn with Joy is perhaps the most complex of the stories in The Pinecraft Pie Shop series by Tricia Goyer and Sherry Gore.
The third of the Miller daughters, Joy, seems to have found the answer to one of her greatest dreams -- an outstanding young bishop's son who appears pleased to consider her for marriage. But life in the little Amish community of Pinecraft changes quickly when Englishers arrive to film a television show. Suddenly, Joy is very much involved in their business, and that fact seems to tear apart her dream to be a traditional wife and mother.
This story involves a wide range of issues on the parts of both the Amish residents and English visitors in Pinecraft. The deep meaning of God's love and the mission of His people to share that love cause the lives of several to be turned topsy-turvy before finding the paths they are intended to follow.
Although not as many as in the first book of the series, you will once again get the bonus of several delightful recipes throughout the story.
For all fans of great Amish fiction, I highly recommend all three volumes in this Pinecraft Pie Shop series.

When I selected this book to read I didn't even read the description as this was third in a series and I so enjoyed the first two. I was in no way disappointed. This was definitely on the list of hard to put down books. I was surprised in a very good way at the turns the book took. The characters were alive and the plot made you really think about what you would do while still being a good fiction book to relish. Another point of interest that drew me in further was how it dealt with the balance of the Amish people between staying separate to cling to their beliefs while reaching out to others with God's love.
sgreene015 Stars Out Of 5A truly joyful read!July 27, 2016sgreene01Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The third book in The Pinecraft Pie Series, by Trisha Goyer and Sherry Gore, finds us following another of the Miller sisters, Joy. She loves her Amish life and dreams of becoming a good Amish wife and mother. She and Matthew Slagel have been courting and have fallen in love.
Joy works part-time in a Quilt Shop, and is a wonderful seamstress. When a lady comes to the shop and purchases six quilts and asks Joy to deliver them, Joy learns that she was part of a television crew who has come to Pinecrest, Florida to film a TV series portraying the Amish life. While doing the delivery, Joy sees the actors clothing isnt what the local Amish normally wear and makes a comment. The director hires Joy to sew Amish costumes for the actors.
The Amish community, lead by Matthews father, the bishop, is very upset that the crew is there and everyone, including Matthew, is very upset, when they learn that Joy is working for the Englisch. Little do Matthew and the rest of the community know the real reason Joy is working this job. As she makes friends with the crew members, she feels Gods calling on her life to help them learn about God and His love.
Will Joy continue to follow her feelings of doing Gods will, or will she follow the Amish communitys desires and Matthews insistence that she quit? Will her dream of a life with Matthew be torn apart, or will they be able to overcome this adversity?
This is a great read that I would recommend to everyone. I couldnt put it down until I had read the entire book. It makes you think about the choices we make in our lives, how they affect others and most of all, how they affect our relationship with God.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher, Harvest House, for my honest review.
