The Healing Quilt by Wanda Brunstetter

The Healing Quilt by Wanda Brunstetter is another installment in the Half-stitched Amish Quilting Club's series.  Lamar Miller has been suffering from arthritis and together with Emma move to Sarasota, Florida for the winter.  Lamar is loving the beach and the warm weather but Emma finds herself bored by the lack of friends and family as well as enough to do.  The 2 of them decide to attempt another class teaching quilting to the community.  The class attracts 6 people of various skill levels and reasons for taking the class.  Just as before the class members arrive with their various emotional and physical entanglements but Emma and Lamar are finding this class difficult to help since they will not open up to the group or to them.  Jan Sweet who is a former member of her Indiana quilting group arrives for a visit and adds a twist to the group and changes begin to happen.  How will God use Emma and Lamar to help this group of hurting people?  Read on.

I liked this book though it is less about how the Amish live in their world and more on how an Amish family live among the English.  And in that respect there is little in what we expect to find: Amish people living their lifestyle and more like the Amish go to the beach.  If you are reading this series because you enjoy the Amish community you will not find that in this book.  This book tells of how the Amish live among the English and there is very little about the Amish lifestyle.  Because of that I didn't enjoy this book as much as Ms. Brunstetter's previous stories.
This book was provided by Handlebar for this review.
