Book Description

Grace's autistic son needs a life that is safe and consistent. Seth wants to leave his flirting days behind him and settle down.

Deep in the heart of the Allegheny Mountains of Pennsylvania, the beautiful and weary Amish widow, Grace Beiler, is not looking for a husband—especially one so much younger than her. But handsome and smitten Seth Wyse stumbles upon a way to help her and they marry to keep Grace’s autistic son safe from his ill-intentioned uncle.

Grace soon discovers that she is far from immune to her young husband’s experienced charm and realizes that her first marriage has not destroyed her capacity for love.

Seth Wyse seeks counsel from his older brother, Jacob, when playing the game of pursuing his wife becomes more dangerous to both his heart and life than he ever imagined.

Yet God can give Grace and Seth a passion for family and each other that teaches them the ways of the Master Quilter through the tangled and tender threads of their lives.

My Thoughts

This was such a wonderful story of how coming from an abusive relationship doesn't have to set you up for repeat abusive relationships. There are good people out there for you, you just have to let the right one find you sometimes and how just a few threads of grace can turn into some beautiful in the end.

Brace Bieler gave up all her life' hopes and dreams to marry at a young age in exchange to dig her family out of financial turmoil only to be mentally and physically abused by her older husband. After a short but what seemed like forever marriage she became a widow and was left alone with an autistic son named Abel.

She had no one around to help her. She was estranged from her family because of her husband who would not let her see them and her husbands brother Tobias thought that he deserved everything that had belonged to his older brother Silas to include Grace and Abel. Tobias was no different than his brother Silas when it came to being abusive, it was the way both the brother were raised.

Grace had to get away from Tobias so she and Abel moved to Pine Hollow in hopes that she could flee from the trouble that Tobias created for her and Abel but after a few months of living there he catches up with her again and this is where her neighbor Seth comes in. Now, I am not one who likes to purposely spoil books for others so I am just going to leave it at that. All I will say is that Grace and Seth have some ups and downs that is for sure. 

I thought that this was a very well written book and I completely enjoyed every minute of it. It had me wanting to keep reading it and not stopping, which is what is important to me in a book. I can't stand a book that I get bored with. 

I highly recommend this book to anyone, especially those that enjoy reading about the Amish or just fiction in general.

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book for my Kindle to read in order to write this review. My opinion is just that, my opinion and no one else's. Images and information is from 


  1. That sounds like a very good book. I love reading :) Thanks for sharing!

  2. I Love her books, This one was amazing. I get most of her and a few other authors on the day of release and then there are a few that are finished with in a couple of days. and this was one of them.

    Thanks for the great review, its nice to know others who read the same books I do.

  3. This is my first time go to see at here and i am really impressed
    to read all at alone place.

    Also visit my website: Useful Site

  4. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than
    just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
    But think of if you added some great visuals or video clips to
    give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent
    but with pics and video clips, this site could certainly be one
    of the best in its niche. Very good blog!

  5. I've never read anything about the Amish, but just reading the plot summary and your review has me curious and interested in reading this book. The subject matter seems unconventional (in a good way) because it focuses on something that can happen to any woman anywhere. Abuse is rampant all over the world and it's sad that it can occur even in societies or cultures where it is least expected to happen. I also like to read the occasional romance book so I think this book having that element also makes me more interested in reading it. Thanks for your review, I will have to put this one on my must-read list.
