The Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club

Author: Wanda Brunstetter
Genre: Life
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 9
Type: Fiction
Number of pages: 312
Time period: Present
My overall opinion: One of the first things that attracted me to this book was the cover. Isn’t it interesting? And here’s the awesome thing – every person on the cover looks exactly like their character in the book! Now that’s great. ;) This was one of those stories where I have absolutely no idea what to put as the genre, so “life” gets used. It’s a story concerning the lives of these people! You see, Emma (an older Amish woman) decides to host a quilting class. But when it begins, a great variety of people arrive. These people include: a single dad; a biker who appears rough, but isn’t as bad as he may seem; an over-worked pastor’s wife; a couple with marriage problems; and a teen with an attitude. Over the six weeks of the class, these people learn interesting things about each other while learning to quilt a small wall-hanging. Emma is able to encourage each of them through the trials they go through. I really enjoyed it! There are some surprises in store for you in this book. I loved them! It was very interesting, and not at all hard to read. For some reason, Barbour (the publisher) is filing it as a Christian fiction romance, but while it’s certainly both Christian and fiction, it’s really not a romance. All in all, I recommend it!
