"The Tattered Quilt" by Wanda E. Brunstetter

About this book:

“Join Emma Yoder Miller, the Amish widow-turned-newlywed, as she leads another quilting class with a new group of unlikely students, all with tattered pieces of their lives that need mending. Members of the patchwork group find friendship, faith, healing, and restoration while gathered around their quilts, under the Father’s guiding hands—for only He can take what’s ragged and shabby from the lives of His children and turn it into beauty for His glory.


Series: Book #2 in “The Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club”. {Read book #1, “The Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club”, Here! Book #3’s review will be posted next week.}

Spiritual Content- 1 John 4:12 in the Dedication; Many, many Scriptures are quoted; Church going; Talks about God & Trusting Him.

Negative Content- Minor cussing including: a ‘drat’, two “eat crow”s, three ‘dumb’s, twelve forms of ‘stupid’; Terry smokes a lot & tries to stop

Sexual Content- Carmen’s boss wants her to write a story about Amish teens who “go wild into drinking, drugs and s*x during their running-around” (She finds out that many Amish teens stay in the Church); Boyfriends, Girlfriends, Dating, Crushes and Exs are all part of the story.

My personal Rating- 

{Only because of Terry & his smoking}
Just like the first book the “big” plot twist happened about 3/4ths in, which I thought was a bit late. Other than that and Terry’s smoking, it was a fine book.

 See y’all on Friday with another review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
