    Entertaining and enjoyable read. Doesn't flow extremely well and a little unclear in spots but overall pretty good.

    When the heart cries is the first book in the sisters of the quilt series.

    Amish Hannah Lapp is in love, too bad it has to be with a Mennonite follower Paul Wadell. She knows her parents will never approve the match, but Hannah and Paul believe that love can conquer all. One afternoon after Hannah and Paul meet secretly, Hannah is brutally attacked and raped. Unable to make sense and unable to talk to Paul about what has happened, Hannah begins to withdraw from her family and friends, falling into a severe depression. Only when her brother Luke and his fianc Mary are involved in an accident is Hannah force to reconnect with people.

    So many things about this book, where to start? Ok Hannah, not only has been viciously attacked, after the accident her brother Luke begins to blame her for the accident. Then her other sister Sarah begins to act in a very strange way. For me there were just too many tragedies for one person to bare in the space of a few weeks.

    The next problem I had the callousness of Hannahs family. Her parents know what has happened to her, yet there is no compassion from them, especially her father. There is no forgiveness or acknowledgement especially none of the events were Hannahs fault.

    The upside is that this book is exceptionally well written. The author does very well in weaving a story around such sensitive subject material. The writing really was what made me want to get to the end of the book.

    What happened to Hannah Lapp on her walk home was terrible. What her family and community did to her in the days and months to follow was inconceivably horrible. How can a family do that to a daughter, a sister? Her friends Mary and Matthew are her only source of comfort. I felt like cheering every time Matthew came on the scene. He showed true unconditional love that Hannah should have been able to rely on from her family and the church elders, rather than the judgement and rejection she received. It was hard to read, but enough high points and heroes to keep me reading, and leave me looking forward to the rest to the story in the next book in the series.

    All her life, she has leved teh sheltered life on the Amish. After tragedy strikes, Hannah sinks into an uncertainty and despair. How can she face life knowing what has happened. In the midst of her person struggle, her brother, Luke and her best friend Mary barely survive being hit by a car. Taking care of her friend gives her life a new purpose and direction, but will the secrets she has been keeping destroy her?

    Only a few know the truth of her situation and so many rumors are spreading. Has Hannah turned her back on the Amish community or has the community turned its back on her.

    This novel is a worthy read and will break your heart while reminding that God is always there especially when the heart is broken.

    I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
