The Healing Quilt: The Half Stitched Amish Quilting Club Series Book 3 By Wanda Brunstetter

I received this book from Handlebar Marketing for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this book. The opinions expressed here are my own. 

Book Description: 

Join retired Amish newlyweds Emma and Lamar Miller in Florida for the winter as they lead another quilting class with a new group of unlikely students: Jennifer, a pregnant new mom; Mike, a charter boat owner; Erika, a wheelchair bound teen; Kim, a waitress; Noreen, a newly-retired widow, and BJ, an artist facing illness. When old friends visit from Indiana, will romance also become a subject of class discussions?

My Thoughts: 

The Healing Quilt is the third book in Wanda Brunstetter's popular series, The Half Stitched Amish Quilting Club and it is great. Wanda Brunstetter is in my top 5 must read authors and as a huge fan of Amish Fiction I could NOT pass this up. I have had the joy of reading the first two books of this series so I was excited to continue this journey with Emma and Lamar Miller and their unique quilting classes.  In The Healing Quilt, Emma and Lamar Miller head to their winter home in Florida and decide to offer their quilting class while they are there. As with their other classes, The Millers get a unique group of students that range from young to old, Amish to English, and Men to Women. This unlikely group have only one thing in common, this class but as the class progresses friendships and romance start. Emma and Lamar Miller even get a visit from old friends from Indiana to round off their group.

The Healing Quilt is the latest book in this awesome series by Wanda Brunstetter. One of my favorite authors and one of my favorite genres! I have loved this series by Wanda Brunstetter. The Half Stitched Amish Quilting Club Series is a great series with some great characters.  The great part about this series is that each book can be read as a stand alone. Wanda Brunstetter's writing gives new readers enough information that you don't feel lost but not too much that loses the seasoned reader of this series. Wanda Brunstetter writes with authority about all things Amish, quilting, communities in Indiana and Florida, and medical issues/healing.  I found all of these characters enjoyable and love that we meet some great new friends while still getting to catch up with some old friends from the previous books. I couldn't put this book down once I started it. I loved being transported into the Amish world. I hope that there are more books in this series! I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Amish Fiction, it will not disappoint! I give this book 4 STARS.
