The single mom’s second chance…
To become one of the Brides of Lost Creek!
Widow Rebecca Mast returns to her Amish community with her son and a dream—to own a quilt shop. Carpenter Daniel King is determined to help Rebecca and revive their childhood friendship. But as he bonds with her son, Rebecca’s afraid the secret she’s been keeping will be revealed. Can Daniel convince Rebecca he’s a man she can trust—and love?
I received a complimentary copy of this book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.
While I often equate the Amish with a close-knit community and families that stand up for one another, I don’t believe I have read another Amish book that highlights this as much or as well as The Wedding Quilt Bride. Author Marta Perry has done such a beautiful job of showing how families can work together to support and care for one another in this lovely book.
I was so touched by the kind way Daniel treated Lige, Rebecca’s son. (His full name is Elijah, so I imagine the nickname is pronounced like that.) While he was amazing with children in general, the scene when they first met and he worked so hard, yet so naturally, to draw a smile from the young boy also brought a smile to my face. His strong sense of responsibility and protectiveness towards those he loves made him quite endearing.
Rebecca had such a hard time allowing herself to rely on others or to allow them to help after the pain she endured in her marriage, including the way her in-laws responded to her needs. The response of her own family and the community to her was so beautiful. I loved seeing them help her set up her shop. And then on the day the quilt shop opened, not only showing up but buying things they didn’t necessarily need.
This story stands on its own, and yet had hints of a new story to come. I do hope that the next book will be about Daniel’s little brother. I would love to know how his story ends.
