The Christmas Quilt by Vannetta Chapman is a story about Annie, her friend and sister-in-law, Leah. They live with their families in an Amish community.
During Annie’s rumspringa, she chose to study and work as a nurse. She returns to life as an Amish lady when her father is gravely ill. she marries Samuel, an herbalist. The same day she marries Samuel, her brother Adam marries Leah. Soon both are pregnant, Leah with twins.
This book is the story of a 9 patch quilt Annie is making for Leah and Adam.
This book seems to go on forever. The plot does not move quickly, you’re almost half done with the book before the quilt is started, and each block has to have a story. Some scenes, especially those in the hospital, did not ring true. (And it wasn’t an “Amish Hospital”.)
I am not overly fond of Amish fiction, but I keep reading it in hopes that it changes.
You might LOVE this book. You’ll have to read it for yourself.
