Wanda Brunstetter did not disappoint in this installment of the Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club series. This book can be a stand alone novel but it follows the story line well if you read each novel in order.
In this latest novel, we join Emma and Lamar in Sarasota, Florida where they decide once again to open their home to a quilting class. We are introduced to a new class: Jennifer, a pregnant new mom; Mike, a charter boat owner; Erika, a wheelchair bound teen; Kim, a waitress; Noreen, a newly-retired widow, and BJ, an artist facing illness.
As always, Wanda does an excellent job keeping all the storylines flowing in a way that doesnt confuse the reader. We also get to see old friends come for a visit. I love reading this series as we get to see Emma let God use her to touch so many lives. Wanda leaves the reader feeling like the characters are old friends who you cant wait to visit again in the next book.
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.
