The Amish Quilter – Artistry and Intrigue!
The Woman of Lancaster County series started off with a bang….but would the latest in the series, The Amish Quilter, deliver? OH, YEAH!
The Amish Quilter tells the story of Linda Mueller, an accomplished quilter. She is known for her preciseness and exactitude in just about every facet of her life. When Isaac Mast enters the picture, she’s smitten by his looks, by his kindness, by his…art. When she and Isaac discover a family mystery involving a long-gone Amish artist, the hunt begins.
Isaac Mast is not your average Amish guy. He’s an artist, and something within him thrums when he creates. Isaac and Linda bond over their respective crafts…until Linda learns the truth.
I was given The Amish Quilter in exchange for my honest review. While references to the first book in the series are mentioned, it is not distracting, and the novel can easily be read as a stand-alone. At first, I was frustrated that the first part of the book seemed to lag…and then it became clear: It was all absolutely necessary in order to create an amazing, epic story of longing, intrigue, and love! Authors Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould do an incredible job of exploring the heart of a true artist. It was fascinating! I found that I wanted to pick up a big box of crayons and just marvel at the colors mentioned throughout the story (you’ll know what I mean!) Be sure to add this to your To Be Read pile – and put it on top!
