The Avid ReaderDunedin, FLAge: 45-54Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Third book in series!November 28, 2016The Avid ReaderDunedin, FLAge: 45-54Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Cherished Quilt by Amy Clipston is the third book in the Amish Heirloom series. Christopher Chris Hochstetler is reeling from the loss of his brother, Gabriel. His father, Wilmer blames Chris for Gabriels death. Chris needs to get away. He decides to visit his Uncle Hank in Bird-in-the-Hand, Pennsylvania (in Lancaster County). Chris will be working in his Uncle Hanks and his partner, Leroy Fishers leatherworking shop. Emily Fisher, Leroys youngest daughter, can tell that something is bothering Chris and that he needs a friend. Emily goes out of her way to be friendly to Chris and get him to come out of his shell. Chris lacks confidence after years of criticism from his father. Emily slowly works with Chris and helps him gain confidence and overcome his grief (and guilt). As Chris birthday approaches, Emily wants to make him something special. After hearing the story of the quilt, he left behind at home, Emily wants to make him a replacement. Emilys mother lets her have fabric from her Mammis (grandmothers) trunk. As Emily and Chris spend more time together, Emily starts to fall in love with him. Chris cares for Emily, but there is something that he has not told her. Will they be able to overcome Chris secret (an obstacle in their path) to have a happy ending or will Emily be left with a broken heart? Open The Cherished Quilt and step into the world of Emily, Chris, and their families in Lancaster County.
The Cherished Quilt is a well-written (as are all of Amy Clipstons novels) and easy to read. It is the third book in An Amish Heirloom Novel series, but you can read it alone. I do, though, recommend reading The Forgotten Recipe and The Courtship Basket. We do get updates on the characters from the previous novels. It was nice to see how they are faring in their new lives. I found the characters are likeable as well as relatable. They are the type of people you want to have as neighbors. I give The Cherished Quilt 4.5 out of 5 stars (I liked it). It was good to see how Chris changed over the course of the novel thanks to friendship, love, and rediscovering his beliefs. The Cherished Quilt deals with grief, forgiveness, friendship, love, and so much more. The ending is expected, but it will leave you with a smile on your face. We are left with a question unanswered at the end of The Cherished Quilt, and we must wait until the next novel to get the answer.
CindyLBaltimore, MDAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Grab your box of tissues!November 28, 2016CindyLBaltimore, MDAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I LOVED, and I mean LOVED this book even if I cried a lot! Each book in this series has tugged at my heart in one way or another. I love how this series brings back the characters in each book. With this book, you learn more about Veronica, Jason, Rachel, Mike, and Emilys parents as well as find out about the cherished quilt and its background. Youll see how bullying can even happen amongst adults instead of just children in school and how it can impact a relationship. Youll see how by taking the time to talk things out that things can and will get better for the most part. Youll see a love between Chris and Emily develop and how honestly and faith prevail. Youll learn consequences that occur when one is not baptized in the Amish faith, but thats an easy fix in this story. Youll see how forgiving yourself can make you feel so much better. Amy Clipston just knows how to intertwine all the characters and storylines to make you feel like you are there in Bird-in-Hand. I felt like I wasnt reading a story I felt like I was part of the story.
I dont know how Amy does it. She transforms each character to life. You feel what they are feeling.
You can read this book as a stand alone book, but I recommend reading The Forgotten Recipe and The Courtship Basket first, so you can feel more at home with the characters and fall in love with them more after each book.
Britt98Grand Prairie, TXAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Packed With Emotion!!!November 27, 2016Britt98Grand Prairie, TXAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have enjoyed all of the books in the Amish Heirloom series, however The Cherished Quilt is definitely my favorite of the novels. The author was able to wrench so many emotions out of me with this book!
When Emily felt hurt or heartbroken, I could feel it, too. When Chris was dealing with overwhelming guilt, I could absolutely feel his struggle. When romance began to grow, I could feel it. And when the story ended I couldn't believe it was over! I can not wait until book four comes out!
The Cherished Quilt had so many good characters in it and such intense emotion. If you haven't read the earlier books in the series, you can probably still enjoy this novel. If you have read books one and two, you will enjoy seeing what is going on in the lives of Emily's sisters, who were the main characters in the other books. I enjoyed this novel so much and this series has been a really great one.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
