I have enjoyed all of the books in the Amish Heirloom series, however The Cherished Quilt is definitely my favorite of the novels. The author was able to wrench so many emotions out of me with this book!
When Emily felt hurt or heartbroken, I could feel it, too. When Chris was dealing with overwhelming guilt, I could absolutely feel his struggle. When romance began to grow, I could feel it. And when the story ended I couldn’t believe it was over! I can not wait until book four comes out!
The Cherished Quilt had so many good characters in it and such intense emotion. If you haven’t read the earlier books in the series, you can probably still enjoy this novel. If you have read books one and two, you will enjoy seeing what is going on in the lives of Emily’s sisters, who were the main characters in the other books. I enjoyed this novel so much and this series has been a really great one.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Tragedy tore Christopher’s world apart. But Emily believes there are enough pieces left behind to stitch together a beautiful new beginning.
Emily Fisher is eager to meet the new employee at her father’s shop in Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania. But when Christopher Hochstetler arrives, his cold demeanor freezes her attempts at building a friendship.
Longing for a fresh start, Christopher travels from Ohio to Bird-in-Hand to work at his uncle’s shop. Christopher’s heart is still wounded from memories of home, and making new friends is the last thing on his mind—he knows the pain that comes with losing those you love. When Emily is kind to him, he tries to remain distant, but he soon finds himself stealing glances at her throughout the day.
When Christopher shares his tragic reasons for leaving home, Emily decides to make a quilt for him as a gesture of their friendship. Even though he is not a member of the church, she’s found someone with whom she can imagine a future. The two are quickly falling in love when a family emergency calls Christopher back to Ohio without warning.
Emily finishes the quilt, in spite of her pain. But when Christopher receives it, will he have the courage to follow his heart?
