THE TATTERED QUILT
Genre: Inspirational, Mainstream
The impact of first impressions is well demonstrated by Brunstetter’s delightful collection of characters in her latest Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club story. Mending tattered lives, miraculous transformations, faith and friendship abound in this sequel that can stand alone. While not her typical Amish tale, the heartwarming scenes, family values and convincing characters still make the reader a part of the story — and the quilting club.
Emma Miller and her husband, Lamar, have an interesting group of students in their quilting class. There is Selma, a busybody who is challenging to befriend; Blaine, who is in the class because he lost a bet; Cheryl, who wants to fix her grandmother’s quilt; Terry, a roofer who is hoping to win Cheryl’s attention; Anna, a young Amish girl who would rather be exploring the English world; and Carmen, who is there to acquire information for a story on Amish teens running wild during rumschpringe. Will they learn far more than quilting from each other? (BARBOUR, Aug., 320 pp., $14.99)
