Handsome, headstrong Jacob offers Lilly his hand in marriage, but his heart belongs to someone else.
While Lilly Lapp has loved Jacob for years, she wouldnt compete with Sarah King, the woman Jacob was determined to marry. But when Sarah marries another, Jacob spontaneously agrees to wed Lilly.
Lilly divides her time between teaching the local Amish children and caring for her widowed mother who suffers from depression. Lillys faith comforts her, but her heart still longs to be the sole object of Jacobs affection.
As the days slip by, Lilly decides that hoping is too risky and vows to protect her heart. But God is subtly as work, and as winter turns to spring, their hearts awaken. The furthest thing from Lillys mind is her Amish wedding quilt, a traditional gift for new brides. And the person shed least suspect is the one making it. Like stray pieces of fabric quilted into a new design, Jacob and Lillys marriage begins to bind them together in ways neither expected.

A Simply Enchanted LifeNorth CarolinaAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5tantalizing yet tasteful romanceFebruary 5, 2013A Simply Enchanted LifeNorth CarolinaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Lilly's Wedding Quilt is book two in in the Patch of Heaven series by Kelly Long. I have enjoyed this series so much that I devoured the first three books in just a few days' time. I am really hoping that there will be more books in the series. Kelly Long has a way of drawing you in with her vivid writing. It is, in my opinion, a little more spine tingling in the romance department. However, it isn't trashy. It is very tasteful and yet deliciously enticing. It is the right amount of romance with enough reserve so that it is still wholesome.
About the Story:
Sarah is getting married to Grant Williams and Jacob is completely shattered. When he finds himself a victim of a gunshot wound, it is the local school teacher that cares for him and shelters him from possible arrest. While covering up for Jacob, the community demands an answer to his whereabouts. Lilly takes a stand and announces to the community that he was with her. The problem isÃ¢â¬âthis means people will now question both Jacob and Lilly's reputation. Knowing this, Jacob steps in with a marriage proposal for Lilly and though she knows that he still loves SarahÃ¢â¬âshe accepts. Lilly has loved Jacob for years but he always had his eyes on Sarah. She is determined to make Jacob love her and though he has feelings for someone else; he takes his marriage vows seriously and with God's help begins a journey of finding love with Lilly.
Lilly understands Jacob on a level he never thought possible. She understands what he responds to and starts to chip at the the icy exterior he has built over his heart. Honestly, the romance in this book was spine-tingling. Jacob has to be one of my new book crushes. Holy WOW! He is one deliciously written book character. I nearly wanted to step inside the pages and steal him away from Lilly! Sarah was a fool for giving up this gem! Although, Lilly is a much better fit for him. If you like Amish romance and wanted a little something more tantalizing and yet tasteful, this is the book to read!
I did think that some of the things in this book might be a little off for an Amish community but I still enjoyed it. I was able to overlook the few things that I thought were probably a bit inaccurate. Overall though, masterfully written and alive with emotion. This is going on my favorites shelf!

Local Amish schoolteacher Lilly Lapp is tired of weddings, afraid of horses, and immersed in caring for her depressed mother. But when Jacob Wyse, a handsome horse breeder from her small community rescues her from a dangerous accident, Lilly discovers a renewed interest in life and the possibility of love.
Yet Jacob has lost the one true love of his life to another man and doesn't care to expose himself to the vulnerabilities of loving again. God works to bring this unlikely pair into a sweet romance to produce a pattern of faith, which leads to the creation and comfort of Lilly's Wedding Quilt.
This book is the 2nd book in A Patch of Heaven Series by Kelly Long. This book was very good, in fact it was so good that I couldn't put it down. Kelly Long is a GREAT Amish Author, one that I will definitely look for again.
When it starts, Lilly has to take care of her mother and is also a schoolteacher. I don't know how anyone could do this, but the Lord gives her strength I guess. But, when Lilly comes across Jacob Wyse again, she remembers how she feels about Jacob. She has loves him from when they were children. Jacob has issues though, he still loves another woman who got married to another man. This is definitely a book you would love especially if you love the Amish as much as I do.
Both Lilly and Jacob have to realize how they feel about each other and it is GREAT how the Lord brings them together in this book.
I loved this book so much that I would most definitely suggest it to my family and friends.
