In this compelling novel in the Pleasant Valley series, a woman opens a quilt shop that brings the Amish and the Englisch together--and brings her unexpected challenges...

Hoping for a distraction after a thwarted romance, new arrival Katie Miller sets up shop on Pleasant Valley's Main Street. It's not long before a quilting circle forms and women from both the Amish and Englisch worlds are crafting and socializing together--much to the consternation of the furniture craftsman next door. Caleb Brand has kept to himself since he lost his betrothed under scandalous circumstances, and he could do without all the feminine chatter, not to mention Katie Miller's carefree attitude.

When Katie becomes involved with her Englisch friends in promoting Pennsylvania Dutch Days, some in town appreciate the new business it brings. But others are upset about the flood of outsiders it attracts. When acts of vandalism threaten Katie's shop, she turns to Caleb for comfort and soon a fragile friendship forms. But will Caleb's secret past prevent him from embracing a future with Katie? Or will their fragile romance develop the strength to last a lifetime?

Loved this book

User Review  - NewfieSmile - Christianbook.com

I loved this book also. I love books that are based on the Amish or Mennonite people. The way they live is so simple and touching. They focus on God and family and these days it's hard to find alot of people that do that . Read full review
