Join Emma Yoder Miller, the Amish widow-turned-newlywed, as she leads another quilting class with a new group of unlikely students, all with tattered pieces of their lives that need mending. Members of the patchwork group find friendship, faith, healing, and restoration while gathered around their quilts, under the Father’s guiding hands—for only He can take what’s ragged and shabby from the lives of His children and turn it into beauty for His glory.
The book was a delight to read and I loved the ending. I definitely did not see it coming and I love surprise endings. I loved it!
love to read1 Stars Out Of 5Very Diappointing BookSeptember 13, 2015love to readQuality: 0Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1We are very disappointed with the lack of scripture and spiritual guidance. No ONE would want their daughter to date someone like Terry. Why couldn't there have been some conversions and changed lives?

Emma felt the need to remain in their Amish community in Shipshewana, Indiana to teach another 6-week quilting class. As in the past the class filled up quickly, and the Millers were once again put to the challenge. The students were as tattered as the old quilt that one of the students brought to Emma for repairs. Was it possible that those six people could find restoration and peace through the process of quilting? As a custom, the Millers prayed for each of their students as the weeks passed by, and lives would be changed through their compassion and prayer, and unexpected events.
This series of books is quite different from what we're accustomed to in Wanda Brunstetter's writing style. I'm finding this series to be very entertaining, refreshing and amusing. She has added numerous elements to these stories that reveal many facets of our society, and she blends them with the Amish tradition in a very unique way. Wanda is very familiar with Northern Indiana, and has made numerous Amish friends over the years. Her sense of humor comes through in this series in a way I have found very enjoyable. There are numerous plots interwoven throughout "The Tattered Quilt," and the characters are as varied as the quilt designs found in the area. Faith, hope and compassion are very strong currents that run throughout the lessons in quilting and the lives of these characters. Pick up the entire series and relax and enjoy the entertainment these books offer! I thoroughly enjoyed "The Tattered Quilt" as much as I enjoyed "The Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club." In addition, if you have the opportunity, be sure to see the musical based on the first book in the series. It is outstanding!
