The Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club by Wanda E. Brunstetter

Widow Emma Yoder didn't know know what to expect when she offered a six-week quilting class at her home. She was even more surprised when her students showed up on the first day. Rudy Lee Williams was a pastor's wife who seemed to have it all together. Young widower, Paul Ramirez, had to bring his 9 month old daughter with him. Star Stephens was a rebellious looking young woman with tattoos and a nose ring. Pam and Stuart Johnson had obvious marital issues. Jan Sweet was a 40 year old male biker with a surprising soft spot.

Widower Lamar Miller, was driving Emma crazy. He was always at her house doing nice things for her. She just wanted him to stay away. Emma's students also had issues they were dealing with in their lives and openly discussed them during class. With everyone's problems it was hard to always keep the class in order. Emma may not have felt in control but she knew God brought this diverse group of people together. Read The Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club to find out what happens as this unlikely group of people learn how to quilt and have changed relationships along the way.

This is not a typical Amish Fiction book. The story is not only about Emma but also about the lives of her English quilting students while they are at class and at home. From the get-go the characters were very open about their problems. I'm not so sure that real people would act like that with total strangers. There is an attraction between two characters that I thought was unnecessary and took away from the book. Overall, I enjoyed reading this story even though I was sure how it would end. I would recommend this book for anyone who's looking for an easy read that doesn't get complicated with trying to figure out who is who and what's going on.

I received this free ebook from NetGalley and Barbour Publishing for my honest opinion.
