Review: The Healing Quilt by:Wanda E. Brunstetter

 The Healing Quilt (The Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club, #3)
About the Book:
Join retired Amish newlyweds Emma and Lamar Miller in Florida for the winter as they lead another quilting class with a new group of unlikely students: Jennifer, a pregnant new mom; Mike, a charter boat owner; Erika, a wheelchair bound teen; Kim, a waitress; Noreen, a newly-retired widow, and BJ, an artist facing illness. When old friends visit from Indiana, will romance also become a subject of class discussions?

About the Author:
 A nationally recognized authority on the Amish community, Wanda E. Brunstetter has sold more than seven million copies of her fiction and nonfiction books. Wanda enjoys an uncommon kinship with the Amish and continues to visit their communities throughout the country. Her books have won numerous awards and topped several bestselling charts.

My Review:
 Emma and Lamar want to escape to Florida for some much needed down time and if it helps Lamar arthritis than that is just icing on the cake. Emma starts to feel very homesick without her loved ones around her. So Lamar suggests that she offer quilting classes to the locals. Emma takes him up on the offer, and suddenly the story starts to come alive.

 In typical Wanda Brunstetter fashion many lives come together and unfold into a very touching story that is colorful yet intricate.Emma has been known to change lives through her classes and this time is no different. We are able to sit by and watch the magic unfold as each person is touched by this very special lady.
