Today I am reviewing The Cherished Quilt, book three of the Amish Heirloom series, by Amy Clipston.
Here is a brief synopsis:
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?
I’ve read everything written by Amy Clipston — and I’ve loved everything I’ve read by Amy Clipston! Most of my readers know that my favorite genre is Amish Fiction. Well, Amy writes amazing Amish Fiction!
I have truly enjoyed the Amish Heirloom series, and this third story in the series does not disappoint. I felt sorry for Christopher from the very beginning — and couldn’t wait to hear the rest of his story.
When Emily meets him, my heart went out to her. I could see myself doing the same things she did, trying to be a friend to him.
Don’t miss this story . . . even better, read the entire series. The upcoming holidays is a great time for a great series!
God Bless You!
