Jennie King is a television reporter reporting on the poverty of children in foreign countries. She was injured in a car bombing while on assignment, restricting her abilities to perform her job duties. While in the hospital, her Amish grandmother sent her a handmade quilt with a note welcoming Jennie to her Amish home for healing.

Matthew Bontrager, and Jennie fell in love as young teenagers one summer Jennie was visiting her grandmother, but unavoidable things happened and they hadn’t seen each other since, so the two went their own ways. Matthews life changed drastically when his wife died leaving him and their three children.

As Matthew and Jennie spend time together, Jennie wonders if God has different plans for her life than a television reporter, but someone has to watch out for the poverty of the children, and she is the only one they depend on. She is not sure she can leave her fast paced life as a traveling reporter to settle down in the Amish community. And there is another problem, Jennie is English and Matthew is Amish. They can’t be together for this reason alone, or can they?

I picked this book to read and review because I really like Amish fiction. This is my first reading of Barbara Cameron’s books, and he writing amazes me. To me, this book is a little different from most of the Amish stories I read. The Amish community in this book seems to me more understanding of the English ways, and not so condemning, even though they are strict in their beliefs. In enjoyed the awesome wisdom of Jennie’s Amish grandmother Phoebe . In every situation they faced, Phoebe’s words of wisdom were just the right advice. She was not bitter about life, though she has reasons to be. She was a fun loving grandmother and friend. I love the book cover, it fits the storyline of the book, and makes the characters look interesting.

This Book One in the Quilts of Lancaster County Series is a must read for those liking Amish fiction. You will fall in love with the heartwarming families, drawing you to the book until the last pages.

My thanks to Abingdon Press for providing me a copy of this book to read and review. The review and views in this review are mine only. I was not required or expected to write a positive review.
