About This Book

Annie’s life is deliciously full as the Christmas season approaches. She helps her husband, Samuel, attend to the community’s minor medical needs. She occasionally assists Belinda, the local midwife, and most days, she finds herself delivering the buggy to her brother Adam. Annie’s sister-in-law Leah is due to deliver their first child before Christmas morning, and Annie is determined to finish a crib quilt before the boppli arrives. With six weeks to go, she should have no problem . . . but God may have a different plan. Leah is rushed to the English hospital when the infant arrives early, and Annie discovers the Christmas quilt may hold a far greater significance than she ever imagined.

My Thoughts On The Christmas Quilt

Annie and her sister-in-law Leah are both pregnant. Leah will have her babies, yes babies-twins first and they will arrive before Christmas. But when Leah has trouble and its not even Thanksgiving, everyone is very concerned about Leah and the babies conditions. Leah and Adam have been distant lately, but when they find out Leah has to spend the rest of her pregnancy in the hospital in Philadelphia, they both realize how important the other one is in their lives. Annie stays with Leah and the babies but Adam still misses her being at home.

This is another wonderful Amish story by Vannetta Chapman. I love her books! This is another book from the Quilts of Love Series by Abingdon Press. The quilt in this story has to do with the baby quilt Annie is making for Leah. They both end up finishing the quilt at the hospital and the quilt has many stories for Leah to remember. And you will read each of these stories and how they are connected with the quilt in this book. I really enjoyed another story about the typical Amish families, and this time it was about how Amish families deal with problems with pregnancy. Do they always have their babies at home? Will they really trust Englischer Doctors to take care of them? This is very interesting, and the story goes away from the Amish community a bit. If you enjoy Amish stories, then you will love this one that is written around the Christmas Holiday. But its not just a book to read for Christmas, it can really be read any time of the year!

I received this book from Litfuse to read and review.  I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.

When Laney Carrigan’s adoptive parents encourage her as an adult to seek out her birth family, her only clue is the Lokelani quilt in which she was found wrapped as an infant. Centering her search on the Big Island, she battles fears of rejection from a family that abandoned her once before while her faith struggles to embrace God’s love.

Along the path to her true heritage, she meets Hawaiian cowboy/helicopter pilot, Kai Barnes. Kai is determined to protect the people he’s come to regard as family against a woman he suspects of being nothing more than a gold-digger, but he finds himself drawn to Laney in spite of his reservations. He’s spent his entire life seeking forgiveness from past mistakes and longs for a second chance at happiness. Laney’s painstaking journey to find restoration and a place to belong among the breathtaking allure of the Big Island will lead her closer to her past and maybe even something more.
