A Quilt For Jenna

Amish + Quilts = readers delight! And in this first book in Patrick Craig's Apple Creek Dreams series, readers will follow Jerusha Springer's journey out of tragic circumstances to a new life of hope. Jerusha has spent months making the most beautiful quilt anyone in Apple Creek, Ohio, has ever seen, and she knows it's going to take first prize at the Quilt Fair in Dalton. The prize will be her ticket out of the Amish way of life--away from the memories of her dead daughter and her tormented husband. But on the way to the Fair, she gets caught in the Storm of The Century and Jerusha's driver crashes their car. While the driver goes for help, Jerusha is led by someone, or something, to the side of a lost little girl. By the time the storm clears, Jerusha finds there is a greater prize to be won than money and blue ribbons. A beautiful story of loss....and redemption.


Cafe Lily's Review:

Fans of Amish fiction, have another book to add to their reading list.  In this story, Reuben & Jerusha Springer have experienced horrible tragedy - the loss of their daughter. The loss and heartache drive them apart, and Jerusha is left with grief and bitterness. As she makes plans to leave her Amish community, a freak storm delays her plans. There's plenty of suspense in this book to keep readers turning pages, and the addition of some very surprising elements, take this book a little off the beaten track of typical Amish fiction. The twists and turns in this story are a pleasant surprise.  If you think you've read it all in Amish fiction, you might want to give this author a try.

Disclosure of Material Connection:
I received this book free from Harvest House. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
