    This review was written for The Hawaiian Quilt.
    This book made me laugh and cry. Mandy and her Amish friends were very brave to decide to take a cruise to Hawaii before they joined the church. Gideon who is Mandy's boyfriend is not happy to be apart from Mandy for the weeks she will be gone. Soon Mandy and her friend, Ellen, go to shore and miss the cruise ship. They are very scared. I would have been terrified. Luckily they are directed to a bed and breakfast run by friendly owners. They learn many lessons while they are marooned on the Hawaiian island. Mandy also meets another boy that she gets a crush on. She must decide if she wishes to remain Amish or to stay in Hawaii. I received this book from the author and have given a review with no obligation.

    Mandy Frey and 3 Amish girlfriends take a cruise to the Hawaiian Islands while still in their traditional running around years. Their plan was to return and join the Amish church, with Mandy possibly marrying her boyfriend, Gideon. Armed with nontraditional items such as cell phones and cameras the girls enjoy Hawaii until Mandy and her travel partner miss their cruise ship, and become stranded on the island of Kauai.

    I found this to be a very different style from Ms. Brunstetter's previous books. The characters were somewhat shallow and the book moved somewhat slowly for me until the last few chapters. I had expected the Hawaiian quilt to be a strong feature in this story, but it was a minor detail compared to the rest of the story line. I enjoyed the book except for the minor details. Wanda Brunstetter still remains a favorite Amish storyteller.

    Wanda Brunstetter and Jean Brunstetter have written a wonderful book on Hawaii. It reads much like a travel log of must see places and things to do through the eyes of four young Amish women. I did find the main character of Mandy Frey a bit self centered, selfish, and inconsiderate. The other friends along her journey round the story out well, and give very good insight to service, home, family, and generosity. Gideon or Ken, where will Mandy's heart lead her? Find out as she experiences Hawaii. A long lost quilt makes a journey too, and an unexpected surprise rounds out the book. This book is more a study in growth and coming of age, than folowwing a strict Amish path, It is well worth your time to read, so travel to Hawaii with the Brinstetter ladies.

    This review was written for The Hawaiian Quilt.
    The Hawaiian Quilt by Wanda Brunstetter and Jean Brunstetter is another delightful book by a favorite author. Readers follow Mandy and three friends from their Indiana Amish community to a cruise through the Hawaiian Islands. Mandy and Gideon have an "understanding", but is it "real" love. As Mandy questions her Amish roots and what she really wants for her life, her feelings for him begin to change. Unchanging, though, is her love for God and her search for what He wants in her life. Can Mandy find her way? Can she really leave all she knows to make a life for herself in Hawaii? The Brunstetter authors have put together an interesting and contemporary look at the Amish with this journey to Hawaii and life back home in Indiana. With camera and phone mishaps, hurricanes and exciting surfing scenes, with some conflict and well-meant friendly interference the authors keep interest high. Beautiful descriptions of the Islands, their flowers, waterfalls, and sunsets create a hankering to visit this 50th US state. The main characters have depth and reality and their emotions, strengths, and foibles resonate well with readers. Ah, and not to forget the quilt! The thread of this part of the story is sweet and touches the heartstrings! At the conclusion of the book the authors have included a couple recipes and discussion questions. All in all, The Hawaiian Quilt is not just another ho-hum novel about the Amish...it is one that reminds readers about the importance of family, faith and hope amidst adventures in Hawaii!

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley.
