WHEN THE SOUL MENDS
In the final book in the Sisters of the Quilt series, based on Woodsmall's
connections with Amish Mennonite and Old Order Amish families, the faith is woven into the story with gentleness, and Woodsmall gets her point across without preachiness.
A frantic call from her sister Sarah brings Hannah Lapp back to Owl's Perch, Pa. There are memories here Hannah would sooner forget. Some people in this small, tightly knit community also don't want to have the past hurts come back, including Paul Waddell, her former fiance. As she and Paul work closely together on Sarah's health concerns, Hannah questions if she really belongs in the English world, or if her heart is telling her she belongs back in Owl's Perch.
