The Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club (The Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club #1)
The Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club - Wanda E. Brunstetter

I'm an Amish fiction fan, but this book was different. I don't want to say it was bad, it was just different and didn't hold my interest as well.  It followed several characters, most of them non-Amish, and then one Amish woman.  So the story was constantly jumping around and most of the time it was not in the Amish setting.  This did not give much of the setting or feeling of being in an Amish community that we normally get from Amish fiction.

Also, without really having a main character, I personally just didn't get as engaged or care so much about what was going to happen to the characters.  Again, I think that might have been partly due to the choppiness of jumping around so much.

Another thing is that usually we will have a strong romance in Christian/Amish fiction of this nature, but not in this book.  There was one small, undercurrent of a romance that was really not explored in much depth.

This book was interesting and well written, and it was okay, it just wasn't as interesting to me as like the Shunning series or Sisters of the Quilt series. I also saw the musical that goes along with the book and I did enjoy the musical, but again, not as much as the musical that goes along with the Shunning/Confession book series.

The Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club
The Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club - Wanda E. Brunstetter After the death of her husband Amish widow, Emma Yoder has become quite dependent on her family to help make ends meet financially. To ease some of that burden she decides to start teaching a quilting class. She posts notices and puts an ad in the local newspaper. She is very surprised as the students show up for their first class.

A young widower with his infant daughter is hoping to find someone to finish a quilt his wife started for their daughter before she died.

A couple in marriage counseling who were told to find something they could do together.

A preacher’s wife looking for an outlet outside her church to help ease her stress as the church board and her husband disagree on the direction of the church.

A Harley riding construction worker who has lost his driver’s license arrives on a bicycle after his probation officer suggests he find something creative to do.

A young woman who is struggling in life with a mother not always there for her and dealing with the death of her grandmother.

This group of misfits is brought together like the pieces of a crazy quilt where they learn much more than quilt making. God works in mysterious ways.

Dollycas’s Thoughts
This may be my first Wanda E. Brunstetter novel but it won’t be my last.

The Amish live a “simple life” and inviting Englishers into their homes is not easy. Brunstetter has created a lovely story bringing the two groups together. The students have vast differences among them and other than knowing that the Amish live in the area they really don’t know much about the culture. They gather together each Saturday morning for 2 hours and take away so much more from the classes than how to make a quilt. Lifelong bonds are formed. There is also a very cool surprise near the end.

God puts people in our paths for a reason. The author has taken that premise and built a heartwarming story around it.

The is a light, fast, inspiring and delightful story that everyone will enjoy, no quilting knowledge required.

Emma hopes to share her love of quilting as she teaches strangers how to quilt.
Since her husband had passed away over a year ago, her daughter and all the
children had sent money back home to help with the finances. Emma hoped to supplement
the income by selling her quilting items. She placed an ad around town and got
one that wanted to learn. She outlined what she'd need to teach them.
The way the author introduces the people who will be attending the classes is done makes
it easy to keep them straight, as to who they are and what they do for work.
Paul is the 2nd grade teacher and his wife has passed away and he takes care of the little girl. Thanks to his sister she invites them for dinner often.
Ruby Lee is the pastors wife and she needs something else to do besides choir and things at the church.
Beatrice/Star found a letter from her grandmother and it was for quilting class, already paid for.
Star was writing song lyrics and had piercings and dyed hair.
Pam and Stuarts marriage counselor said they should do something that the other does already. She's been fishing with him 2 times now, so it's now his turn to learn quilting with her.
Jan was a biker who got caught speeding, lost his license and now his PO wanted him to take up something to unleash his creative abilities and maybe help him relax. He is a roofer and notices the ad at the store.
They all see or hear about the ad for quilting lessons and get signed up.
Verses of scripture are throughout the book.
The people in the group start talking about losses of their loved ones and many chimed in with their grief.
Others spoke to console them and to just listen. Other weeks there are different topics and all talk about their problem and/or how to overcome them.
Love the quilting itself, Emma is easy to understand.
Recipe for angel cake is included!
