When morning comes is the second book in the sisters of the Quilt series and it starts right where book one leaves off. After the death of her daughter, Hannah decides she needs to leave Owl Perch to find her long lost Aunt Zebeth and to start a new life.
Her ex-fiance Paul Wadell, who is drowning in guilty about the way that things went with Hannah throws himself into school and work. But he cannot stop wondering what is happening with Hannah, so he launches a search for her.
We did get to see Luke and Mary get married despite the secret that Mary insists on keeping. We also get more details concerning Hannahs sister Sarah.
I have to say that this book actually had a great story line and in a lot of ways was better that the first book, but I have to admit that I had a harder time getting through it because it spans two years I dont particularly like books that span huge amounts of time.
Hannah Lapp has given up on ever restoring her relationship with her family and her fiance Paul Waddell. She has fled her secluded Old Order Amish community and hopes to find a new home with the aunt she never knew about. Aunt Zabeth was shunned many years ago and now lives in Ohio. It is encouraging to see so many caring people willing to help Hannah make a new start in life whilst struggling to navigate the confusing world of the Englischers and managing despite her limited education. It is nice to also keep up with those she has left behind, like best friend Mary, brother Luke, dear Matthew, and troubled sister Sarah. They all have plenty of strife of their own to deal with and the story is a complex, but well written one that I would recommend reading after 'When the Heart Cries.'
