Now a New York Times Bestseller! Join the club of unlikely quilters who show up for Amish widow Emma Yoder’s quilting classes. A troubled young woman, a struggling couple, a widower, a rough and tough biker, and a preacher’s wife make up the mismatched lot. But as their problems begin to bind them together like the scraps of fabric stitched together in a quilt, they learn to open up and lend a helping hand. Is this what God had in mind to heal hurting hearts and create beauty from fragments?

Debbie WilderSalinas, CAAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Iâ€™d love to be able to give this book more than 5August 24, 2013Debbie WilderSalinas, CAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleI really like to read Amish fiction. The whole lifestyle is so much slower paced than mine. I find them to be not only entertaining but relaxing as well.
I enjoy Wanda Brunstetter's books very much. She has a very clear writing style that adds to my enjoyment. This book is no different. I love the cast of characters that she has developed for it. They are all vastly different and yet most of them are very likeable right from the start. Even those that annoyed me at the beginning eventually turned out to have some wonderfully redeeming qualities and I liked them all by the end of the book.
Each family represented has their own problems that they are dealing with. Wanda does a fabulous job of working each of them through their problems individually and yet with the support of the others in the quilting class. She shows that it very possible for those who are struggling to be just what someone else needs to help them through their own difficulties.
wfnrenSt Cloud, FLAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5An interesting mix of charactersMay 10, 2013wfnrenSt Cloud, FLAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4In an effort to support herself widow Emma Yoder decides to teach quilting so she posts signs and advertises for students. She accepts six students and oh what a mixed group of students they are, three women and three men including one couple trying to save their marriage, a pastors wife, a biker who lost his drivers license and has to ride a bicycle, a widower with a young baby and a very troubled young girl who's grandmother actually signed her up for the class before she died.
Emma misses her husband terribly and has no interest in remarrying but she is being pursued by Lamar, a widower who doesn't want to live the rest of his years alone. When Emma gets shingles, Lamar fills in for her one Saturday and shares his interest in quilting with the students. Emma continues to brush him off though.
While they are learning quilting the students are all going through their own personal turmoil, will the quilting club students ever finish their wall hangings? Emma finds herself wondering if this was a good idea when she finds personalities clashing more than she feels comfortable with.
This was a pretty interesting story. With the differences in the students personalities, even the couple, you wonder if they will all continue to the end of the course and will they every find peace for themselves.

Janus Tuttle2 Stars Out Of 5March 7, 2013Janus TuttleQuality: 2Value: 2This book was ok, but it seemed difficult to become really interested in it until about the final 3 or 4 chapters. I believe it was my least favorite book by Wanda Brunsetter. It became a little boring hearing about the couples problems however I will say it had a surprise ending and I liked that about it. Other than the last few chapters, it was not one of my favorites. I have about 170 Amish Christian Books however it seems like after about the first or second chapter of each of them, no matter who the author may be, you can almost guess how the books will end. This one as I said , had a surprising ending which was different.

A friend of mine highly recommended it and when I read it for myself I was not disappointed at all. There are quite a few twists in the story and Wanda Brunstetter does not disappoint!
