Or is Ellen’s destiny waiting for her in Indiana?

Find out in this sequel to The Hawaiian Quilt from New York Times bestselling author Wanda E. Brunstetter, writing with her daughter-in-law Jean Brunstetter.


My Review: 
 A beautiful addition to the most loved The Hawaiian Quilt. In this sequel, Ellen thought her life was over when her best friend Mandy moved away to Hawaii. But after a few breath holding moments she was able to gain permission to go to Hawaii to help her friend and that could just what the doctor ordered. While away Ellen meets a friend that makes her question her Amish faith.

 What I really didn't like about the story was that the Amish fight so hard against "the outsiders" aka the English but Ellen was willing to even question her faith over a young man. It bugged me during that part of the story.

 What I liked about the story was the author attention to the beautiful land of Hawaii. She is able to take you on a journey with her words. During the story, Ellen is able to think through a lot of decisions that otherwise could damage her life more than help it. Overall, a perfect ending to this series.
