Hidden Lessons to Be Learned in the book "The Tattered Quilt" by Wanda Brunstetter ~ Book Review


Title: The Tattered Quilt (The Return of the Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club)
Publish Date: August 6, 2013


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.

My thoughts

Here we are one year later from the release date from the first book in this series, which I wasn't sure if I liked at first because it wasn't what I expected but ended up enjoying completely. I know that there is not a doubt in my mind that I loved this book.

There are so many hidden things to learn from Emma and her quilting classes, even for us as readers. One of the things that I picked up and has stuck in my mind is that "it's important to remember not to let our anger consume us or cause us to do something we'll later regret." Not that I didn't already know this but with life recently it just hits home. 

The relationships that are built during the quilting classes amaze me and totally didn't go the way I expected. Again, there are a lot of hidden lessons to be learned and I love that you catch them and learn them with all the enjoyment of a great book.

Another fabulous job my Brunstetter.

I was not paid for this review, I did however receive a copy of the book for my Kindle from NetGalley. The opinions of this book are mine and mine alone.
