As always this story was great. It will make you laugh and cry. It is fun to see these people come together and learn from each other. I look forward to many more books by Wanda E. Brunstetter. I received this book from the author for a fair and honest opinion. I regret that I didn't read it sooner. I loved it a lot.
Wanda Brunstetter continues her Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club series with another entertaining story -- The Healing Quilt.
Emma and Lamar Miller have bought a second home in Sarasota, Florida, where they can enjoy some warmer weather; and they decide to try another quilting class. As in their earlier classes, they manage to bring together quite a misfit group of students who have a variety of struggles they are dealing with in their lives. As they teach their students the basics of quilting, Emma and Lamar manage to also share some pretty important life lessons that bring about some pretty impressive results.
As is true with the other Quilting Club stories, this story is a little different in writing style from the typical Amish fiction. Because there are several diverse characters brought together into a unique setting, the story is presented from different points of view. At times their stories may appear somewhat disconnected and be slightly difficult to follow. But the multiple directions worked for me because of the whole premise of the story.
Although the setting is Amish, most of the characters are not. So The Healing Quilt should be enjoyable for fans of a variety of genres.
Thanks to Wanda Brunstetter and her publisher for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
The Healing Quilt is the third book in the Half Stitched Amish Quilting club. But it is easy to read as a stand alone. Lamar and Emma Yoder are an elderly Amish couple who travel to Florida in the winter due to Lamar's arthritis. Emma decides to hold quilting classes for six weeks to relieve boredom. Lamar helps her with them. They meet and get to know a diverse group of people in those six weeks. As with all Wanda's books, it is inspirational.
I received the Book From the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.
