About the Book

Emily Fisher is eager to meet the new employee at her father’s shop in Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania. But when Christopher Hochstetler arrives, his cold demeanor freezes her attempts at building a friendship.

Longing for a fresh start, Christopher travels from Ohio to Bird-in-Hand to work at his uncle’s shop. Christopher’s heart is still wounded from memories of home, and making new friends is the last thing on his mind—he knows the pain that comes with losing those you love. When Emily is kind to him, he tries to remain distant, but he soon finds himself stealing glances at her throughout the day.

When Christopher shares his tragic reasons for leaving home, Emily decides to make a quilt for him as a gesture of their friendship. Even though he is not a member of the church, she’s found someone with whom she can imagine a future. The two are quickly falling in love when a family emergency calls Christopher back to Ohio without warning.

Emily finishes the quilt, in spite of her pain. But when Christopher receives it, will he have the courage to follow his heart?

My Perspective

I have absolutely loved reading the Amish Heirloom series, this book included! You must read the first two in this series so you can learn about Veronica and Rachel. I was so pleased to see that Emily finally for her own story. It was certainly worth the wait. This book is full of heartache, laughter, joy, sorrow and tears. Yep. I don’t tear up often when I am reading, but this book had my tear ducts working!

Amy is such a fantastic author. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book of hers that has disappointed me. She writes beautifully and makes it so easy to dive into the story. I feel as if I am part of the family when reading her books and get so engrossed in the storylines that they almost feel real to me. I feel all the emotions the character’s do and when something bad happens I am crying with the rest of them!

Bird-In-Hand is such a special place and I’m so glad there is still another story to come! What a teaser in the epilogue – you won’t want to miss it. Let me just say that the next installment cannot come fast enough to learn more about mamm’s chest and its contents. I hope we will see more of Emily and Chris too. I want to see what lies next for them.

Any Amish reader will love this book. But again, make sure you read the first two in the series. You will not regret it! I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
