In the third book in the Amish Quilting Club series, we meet Emma and Lamar as they begin a new quilting class in Sarasota, FL.  The six students – ages teenage to retirees -  come from many different backgrounds.  The Quilting class is not all about teaching the craft, but being God’s light and love in a hurting world.  Yet, even Emma and Lamar could not imagine the challenges of their new students.

The premise was great – show the love of God through actions.  Yet, there are many characters and story lines being introduced and resolved within a single book.  I felt that due to this, the story just skimmed the surface of the characters’ struggles.  The book would have been richer had there been less plot lines to follow and more in-depth story lines.   If you want a simple, feel-good read, you will enjoy this book.  I was hoping Wanda E. Brunstetter would flesh out the characters’ and their histories better – put more meat on the spine of this book.

My rating: 3 out of 5 stars
Enjoyable, but left me wanting more

I received a complimentary copy of The Healing Quilt from Handlebar Publishing for my honest review.
