Review of The Tattered Quilt
The Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club Book 2
Join Emma Yoder Miller, the Amish widow-turned-newlywed, as she leads another quilting class with a new group of unlikely students, all with tattered pieces of their lives that need mending. Members of the patchwork group find friendship, faith, healing, and restoration while gathered around their quilts, under the Father’s guiding hands—for only He can take what’s ragged and shabby from the lives of His children and turn it into beauty for His glory.
I fell in love with Emma in The Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club and was thrilled to continue to read about Emma and her new marriage to Latham. They work together to minister to others as they teach them to quilt. They take very seriously the task of helping the unusual individuals God sends to their classes in a personal way.
I really enjoyed seeing the characters from the first book and how their lives intertwine with the new quilters. I got some great tips on quilting as a bonus! The tattered quilt that Emma is repairing for one of the class members holds secrets of its own. Read this book to discover the secrets of the tattered quilt and the ways of the peaceful Amish.
I received a free pdf version of this book from netgalley.com in exchange for my honest review.
