The Cherished Quilt, a review

This title is the latest in Amy Clipston's An Amish Heirloom series, although each can be read as a stand alone novel.  In The Cherished Quilt, Christopher comes to work at the leather works shop in Bird-in-Hand, which is owned by his Uncle and Emily Fisher's father.

In the novel, we come to find out more about the tragedy which brought Christopher from Sugarcreek to Bird-in-Hand and about the strained relationship between him and his father.  All of which cause his budding romance with Emily to be rocky as well.

One of the things that I like about this series is how the author balances real life within an Amish setting.  So those who like to read about Amish life will enjoy each story without the saccharine sweetness of some such novels.  Seeing how life's struggles are handled within the Amish community makes for very good reading. Once I started reading, it was hard to put the book down.

I highly recommend this book and the two that came before it for anyone wanting a good read without any of the "stuff" we often find in today's fiction.  Good reading for teens, moms, and grandmothers... and my husband likes them as well.

The Cherished Quilt was provided by the publisher for the sake of review but the opinions are my own.

Bird-in-Hand is very near to where we live. In fact I drove through there today. I'll have to see if the library system has any of these books.

Thank you for saying that this one is not like some others in the Amish genre. This one sounds as if I could enjoy it. I have four hours to decide to have it here by Christmas. =D Hope that it stands alone.
