THE HALF-STITCHED AMISH QUILTING CLUB
Genre: Inspirational, Mainstream
A feel-good novel with memorable characters that come together in the most unlikely place and discover things about themselves they would never have known if not for the others. Brunstetter has outdone herself with this novel. Reading it is pure fun. Even though the characters have problems, they learn to overcome them and become the people God wants them to be.
Emma Yoder second-guesses herself: What if no one signs up for her quilting class? Will her students learn anything from the six-week course? How will she, a simple Amish woman, be able to handle people from all walks of life? Her students include a troubled young woman, a married couple who seem to be on the verge of divorce, a biker who was released from jail after being convicted of a DUI, a preacher’s wife who is concerned about her church and the possible ousting of her husband as the minister and a newly widowed man with a baby to raise. He attends because his wife had signed up for the class, and now that she is gone, he needs to feel close to her. When each of their problems comes to light, the quilters come together as a group and lend each other a hand. (BARBOUR, Apr., 320 pp., $14.99)
