The Amish Quiltmaker's Unruly In-Law by Jennifer Beckstrand

 

Moving to a new Amish settlement in small-town Colorado was a brave new start for independent-minded quiltmaker Esther Kiem. But helping her reckless relative will really put her special matchmaking skills to the test . . .
 
Mischievous and rebellious, young Ben Kiem is making the wrong kind of name for himself throughout the town of Byler. And even though his sister-in-law, Esther, somehow coaxes him into keeping company with sensible Linda Eicher, Ben can’t see anything they have in common. Or that he could ever be good enough for someone like her. But Linda’s down-to-earth nature and unexpected understanding have Ben trying his best to be better, no matter how challenging . . .
 
Linda couldn’t be more surprised when Ben turns out to be caring and helpful, despite his rowdy pranks and bad-news friends. And falling in love with him suddenly seems just right. But when a heartbreaking misunderstanding comes between them, both she and Ben must risk enough to trust, stitch the pieces back together—and dare a forever precious happiness.

My Review


What do you do when your thought of a being a bad boy, no matter what happens, it had to have been you. He can’t seem to get away from it, so why not join? I could understand that, but this twenty-three year old is Amish man!
Enter a young Amish woman, who chuckles at some of his antics, but then, well, can she look beyond his really needing to grow up.
We are reunited with past characters, but this book can really be read alone, but you might want to read and enjoy, and meet Cathy, a real hoot!
Will these two very different people be able to join the church and forge a relationship, and will this community live their faith and offer forgiveness?
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Kensington Books, and was not required to give a positive review.
