Publisher's Description

Family, community, faith, and love.
These "quilt blocks" sewn together made Ariana’s beautiful life.
When they are pulled to pieces,
will anything familiar remain?

The Old Order Amish life Ariana Brenneman loved vanished virtually overnight with the discovery that she was switched at birth twenty years ago. Now she’s immersed in the Englischer world, getting to know her mother and under the authority of her biological father, an atheist intellectual with resolute plans to expand Ariana’s worldview. Only Quill Schlabach, a childhood friend living Englisch, can steady the tilting ground between Ariana’s two worlds, but can she trust him after so many betrayals?
 
At the same time, Skylar Nash is forced to choose rehab or spend several months with her true relatives, the large Brenneman family and their seemingly backward life—no electricity, no technology, no fun. What the young woman can’t leave behind is her addiction to illegal prescription drugs and a deep emptiness from the belief that she doesn’t belong in either family.
 
New ties are binding Ariana and Skylar to the lives they were meant to have. Can they find the wisdom and strength they’ll need to follow God’s threads into unexpected futures?
 
Fraying at the Edge is the second novel in The Amish of Summer Grove series.

    Book 2 of Cindy Woodsmall's The Amish of Summer Grove Series was a good read, a story about two girls, one Amish and the other Englisch who were accidentally switched at birth and now found by their biological parents and finding themselves living in a culture that neither of them can relate to despite the fact they were born in that culture.

    The challenges they both face are realistic and sometimes very difficult to cope with.

    I liked this book a lot. I may have enjoyed book 1 a bit more, but it was a good read and I will probably quickly grab the next book in the series. The book was a definite cliff hanger. Can't stop with book 2!

    I received this book from NetGalley for my honest review. All thoughts are my own.

    Cindy Woodsmall is an author I have happily read for a handful of years. The Sisters of the Quilt trilogy got me hooked on her writing. Fraying at the Edge is part of Cindy's three book series, The Amish of Summer Grove. I have read and enjoyed book one Ties That Bind.

    Forgiveness is the theme conveyed throughout Fraying at the Edge. I had trouble initially getting into this book but the storyline picked up for me and then I didn't want to stop reading. The minor characters made the story more enjoyable. There is some resolution with certain characters surprisingly but the next book is needed to reveal the decisions at the end of this novel. Neither of the books I read in this series are stand-alone novels, which I expected since they are part of a trilogy. I look forward to reading Gathering the Threads, book three and discovering how Ariana and Skylar react now that they have lived in both the Amish and English worlds. I was provided a complimentary review copy of this book. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

    I somehow missed the first book in this series and like most of Cindy Woodsmall's stories this is a continuous series where major elements play out over the course of all three books. So, if you are looking for closure, you won't find it until book three comes out. But having said that, this time round the author has done something fabulous -- she's included a brief overview of the story so far at the beginning of this book. So I was able to read that and then dive right into Fraying at the Edge without any trouble. That's a brilliant perk that I hope more authors who write serial type series adopt. Plus she has included a comprehensive who's who list of characters at the back of the book. So you can definitely dive into this story right now if you don't want to play catch up with Ties that Bind first.

    And what a captivatingly convoluted novel! My emotions were all over the place as I got deeper into the story. Both Ariana and Skylar are displaced and totally out of their element. I think Skylar got the better deal -- though she wouldn't agree with me. She's all gnarly and rude and completely self-centered at the beginning but a bevy of siblings are pretty hard to ignore and they slowly begin to wear her down. But she feels abandoned and lost and is just beginning to find herself by the time this book winds down. I feel like there's a possibility for romance in her future and I'm anxious to see how that plays out. Plus Skylar is at a crossroads and I have no idea what she's going to do next.

    Ariana -- oy -- I spent most of the read feeling furiously indignant on her behalf. Her biological father is...gah!...words cannot express how I feel about his tactics. Manipulative. Conniving. Major superiority complex. Watching how that relationship plays out and how it influences Ariana kept me an emotional pretzel for the whole read! But again, I have no clue as to what she will do next. Two men interested in her -- one Englisch, one Amish -- and she's not certain where she belongs.

    A complicated story with promises of much more to come. Can't wait until book three comes out...and hope it's soon!!!!

    I loved this book. What a wonderful story full of heartache and confusion. This is the second book and you could read this one without reading the first but honestly, reading the first gives this book so much more depth.

    My heart just broke throughout this book. I cant even imagine all you know being ripped from you. I loved when Ariana went off on her step-sister! That was priceless and unexpected.

    Skylar needs a wake up call and I kept hoping she would get one and embrace this family that wants to love her.

    All of it was so confusing for the hearts of those involved in this story. But it is masterfully written and I so enjoyed picking up with these characters again and seeing what happened to them.

    A copy of this book was given to me by the publisher. All opinions are my own.
