Eliza King already has a broken heart, and thanks to a rickety
ladder, she now has a broken leg too. She isn’t dealing with either very
well. Ever since a brief romance ended when the boy who’d been courting
her tried a little too hard to take things further, Eliza has sought
refuge in reading books and tending to her beloved horses. Being
incapacitated makes the latter impossible. But her Englisch doctor knows an Amish man looking for just such work . . .
Eliza is shocked to discover that the man is Levi Lapp, the very boy who humiliated her, now all grown up. Levi is embarrassed over his clumsy behavior as a teen. He wants to earn Eliza’s forgiveness, even if he can’t win back her heart. . . . And once Eliza reluctantly agrees to hire him, she finds herself enjoying the little gifts and encouraging notes Levi leaves for her. Encouraged by her older sister, she begins to fashion a quilt out of each item. Soon Eliza can see Levi’s caring spirit plainly before her—and the possibility that he might just be the best thing for her horses—and for her.
About The Author
This is the second book in this series, and yes, they can be read alone, we do have recurring characters. This is Levi and Eliza's story, life long friends, but when something happens and Levi leaves, now there is need of forgiveness.
When the story begins, Levi has returned to his Shadow Lake community upon the death of his dad, can he go home again?
This story does deal with forgiveness, but it also has a lot of compassion, and deals with health issues, along with relationships, and then how our own minds perceive things!
I loved how Elsa's mom talks her daughter into making a forgiveness quilt, and thus we have the title of this read, but also maybe a path to help these two friends.
We could all take lessons from this Amish community and how they rally around those in need.
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Kensington, and was not required to give a positive review.
