The Flower Quilter by Mindy Steele


Full of faith, hope, and romance, this new series takes you into the Heart of Amish country.
Barbara Schwartz was born into a family of quilters, but she would rather eat dirt than partake in another quilting frolic or sew on another binding. When her parents send her to Indiana to help her grandmother in her quilting shop, she finds herself amongst a very different community. It’s only one summer and then she will be back in Kentucky where she belongs.

Melvin Bontrager’s world stopped six years ago when his parents died. Now when his only means of providing for his widowed sister and niece is threatened, Melvin finds his landscaping business disappearing too. When spring delivers a newcomer who is immune to his salty moods, Melvin does something he has never done before, accepts help. 

What blooms is the last thing Barbara ever expected, and everything Melvin could ever want.

My Review

 I could just picture Barbara and her taped fingers, and how she wanted to please her family! She was sent to her Grandmother with the hopes that she would impart her wisdom and help Barbara develop the families gift.

Then we meet Melvin he is a landscaper, and helping his widow sister with her toddler daughter, as we meet him he has decided he will never marry and really is full of guilt. Can a visitor to the area turn his head, or will he continue down his own path?

Wait until you meet the unbrothers or should I say cousins, they seem to have done their jobs over the years!

I enjoyed this story, it hit close to home as I'm a gardener and a quilter. I could picture the plots of flowers done in quilt blocks, and it sure brought many blocks to mind, and I could picture the beauty of them!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Barbour, and was not required to give a positive review.
