The Healing Quilt by Wanda E. Brunstetter


5 stars

The Healing Quilt by Wanda E. Brunstetter was a delightful story and it makes me want to go back and read the earlier books in the series. Emma and Lamar Miller, an Amish couple, have recently married and moved to Sarasota, Florida for the winter. Emma misses teaching quilting classes so she decides to hold a class in her new home. It seems that individuals that are hurting or have some other problem, gravitate toward Emma and her quilting classes. Jennifer, Phyllis, Erika, Kim, Noreen, and BJ sign up for the class and during the six weeks, Emma works her magic which is not really magic but just good common sense and a devout belief in God.

The author did an excellent job in the development of all aspects of the book. Everyone of the characters came to life on the pages of the book and the dialogue of each was very believable. All the scenes were so vividly described that I felt myself right in the center of all the action. Each individual that had a problem at the beginning of the class seemed to work through their feelings and situations and ended with happy results. It was actually inspiring to read about Emma and Lamar’s life and how they helped everyone that came in contact with the couple.

I recommend this book to all that enjoy a good story about the Amish.
