Now a New York Times Bestseller! Join the club of unlikely quilters who show up for Amish widow Emma Yoder’s quilting classes. A troubled young woman, a struggling couple, a widower, a rough and tough biker, and a preacher’s wife make up the mismatched lot. But as their problems begin to bind them together like the scraps of fabric stitched together in a quilt, they learn to open up and lend a helping hand. Is this what God had in mind to heal hurting hearts and create beauty from fragments?
Wandas ancestors were part of the Anabaptist faith, and her novels are based on personal research intended to accurately portray the Amish way of life. Her books are well-read and trusted by many Amish, who credit her for giving readers a deeper understanding of the people and their customs.
When Wanda visits her Amish friends, she finds herself drawn to their peaceful lifestyle, sincerity, and close family ties. Wanda enjoys photography, ventriloquism, gardening, bird-watching, beachcombing, and spending time with her family. She and her husband, Richard, have been blessed with two grown children, six grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.

Cat Mommy5 Stars Out Of 5Loved The BookNovember 14, 2017Cat MommyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Read this book in one night! This series is probably one of my favorites of Wanda Brunstetter's books. Was very suprised to find out that Jan was Star's father. Jan and Star were my favorite characters of Emma's students. Awesome Story!!
pj5 Stars Out Of 5A must readJune 26, 2017pjQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This was one of the first of Wanda Brunstetter's books that I read. I loved this story and the ones that followed.
In this story Emma, a Amish Woman decides to hold quilting classes in her home. Little does she know what a impact these classes will have on her and her students.
I highly recommend this book and the others in this series.
MargotSouth AustraliaAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Relaxing Holiday ReadAugust 13, 2014MargotSouth AustraliaAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4This was a nice easy read - no complicated plot to keep track of, no suspense or drama to climax and recover from. Just a gentle look into the lives of six small town folk who, for various reasons, sign up for Emma Yoder's quilting class. It's lovely to see how the common bond of quilting brings this odd bunch together, allowing them to grow as individuals, and to learn far more than how to quilt from Emma, who is able to impart gentle wisdom between stitches. It's nice to read of the positive outcome for all when this Amish widow opens her heart and her home to outsiders, rather than isolating herself the way most Amish do in books. I enjoyed reading this book on holidays.

Debbie WilderSalinas, CAAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5IÃ¢â¬â¢d love to be able to give this book more than 5August 24, 2013Debbie WilderSalinas, CAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleI really like to read Amish fiction. The whole lifestyle is so much slower paced than mine. I find them to be not only entertaining but relaxing as well.
I enjoy Wanda Brunstetter's books very much. She has a very clear writing style that adds to my enjoyment. This book is no different. I love the cast of characters that she has developed for it. They are all vastly different and yet most of them are very likeable right from the start. Even those that annoyed me at the beginning eventually turned out to have some wonderfully redeeming qualities and I liked them all by the end of the book.
Each family represented has their own problems that they are dealing with. Wanda does a fabulous job of working each of them through their problems individually and yet with the support of the others in the quilting class. She shows that it very possible for those who are struggling to be just what someone else needs to help them through their own difficulties.
