THE AMISH QUILTER

amish quilter cover

Linda Mueller lives an orderly, uneventful existence, content to divide her time between creating the beautiful quilts for which she is known and working at an Englisch fabric shop.

Idealistic to a fault, Linda has never found a man worth marrying—until she meets Isaac Mast, a newcomer to Lancaster County and a talented painter. As they bond over their respective crafts, Linda is drawn to Isaac’s kind ways, humble spirit, and intriguing personality, and soon the seams of her carefully-constructed world begin to loosen.

With Isaac’s help, she explores the story of her late grandmother, also a gifted artist. But when an astonishing truth comes to light, Linda faces a grave decision, one that could destroy any hope of a future with Isaac. Will their dreams of a life together completely unravel? Or can she find some way to stitch them back together again

I really got caught up in this book about Linda and Isaac.  It is a mystery/romance, which happens to be some of my favorites.  I wanted to tell and shake her to get rid of her idealism about “the perfect man” for a husband.  The Knight in Shining Armor is only in fairy tales.  But it takes going through the mystery of finding her grandmother was a twin and getting to know the whole background of that side of the family that no-one knew about.  Through that, everyone’s lives got changed – and for the better

The Amish Quilter is a joint effort of two authors:  Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould.
