Описание

When Christopher Hostettler comes from Ohio to work at his uncle's shop in Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania, he gets off on the wrong foot with Emily Fisher. But when he finally opens up to her about his tragic reasons for leaving home, her heart begins to change.



When Christopher compliments an old quilt, Emily decides to make a similar quilt for Christopher as a gesture of friendship. Emily knows she must guard her heart, as Christopher is not a baptized member of the church, but she's suddenly found someone with whom she can imagine sharing a future. When a family emergency calls Christopher back home to Ohio, Emily decides to finish the quilt, in spite of her pain, and send it to him for Christmas. But when Christopher receives it, will he have the courage to truly follow his heart?

    This is a beautiful story where both Emily, the youngest of the Fisher sisters, and Christopher, a new comer to Bird in Hand, deal with guilt. There are various types of guilt and Amy showcases two very different types in The Cherished Quilt. Emily and Christopher’s romance starts off rocky turns to friendship and slowly blossoms into more mainly due to Emily’s compassionate nature. To show her friendship Emily decides to make Christopher a lap quilt out of material from her Mamm. The way Amy brought family values, and traditions out in all three books was so inspiring. However, the heart-to-heart talks between Emily and her Mamm in this story really touched me, and don’t even get me started on the talks Emily and Christopher had. Let’s just say I had a hard time holding back the tears. I received a complimentary copy (or ARC) of this book from the author via NetGalley. I was under no obligation to write a review, and all options expressed in this review are completely my own.

    I was really looking forward to Emily's story - Emily who has been the one to help others, always putting her family first before herself - and Amy does not disappoint. This is clearly the best story in the series so far, but I think the final one will be the best. Who isn't curious about the parents, after all the clues throughout the first three titles, and this cliffhanger!

    Someday I hope to visit Amish country . The people live a simple life, work hard, help each other and love God with all their heart. Until I get to visit Amish country I can travel there through this authors books. She writes so beautifully and her words are like silk that glisten in the sun. With her words I feel like I am there watching the story unfold. I feel part of the family as the characters are so welcoming. Each book she writes brings readers a fresh look at subjects that we may struggle with in our own lives. I love how she brings characters through tough issues and gently guides them to the answers found in the Bible. After finishing her books, I always feel a gentle breath of fresh air come over me as her story stirs emotions inside me. Christopher or Chris to his friends doesn't seen to be able to live up to his dad's standards. They seem to disagree a lot and Christopher struggles with self confidence. I loved how the character showed his weaknesses and struggles to try to change. After a devastating accident that takes his brother's life, Christopher leaves home to go live with his aunt and uncle. He blames himself for the accident and sadly so does his dad. I can't imagine the heavy burden Christopher carried around believing he caused his brother's death. Can Christopher ever find peace? Will he and his dad be able to make amends? Will Christopher find a trade that he is good at? Emily is someone you want to be friends with. She has a welcoming smile and genuinely cares for everyone. When she meets Christopher she gives him a warm smile . Christopher is not very friendly to Emily and she is bewildered by his actions. I loved Emily's never give up attitude and determination to make friends with Christopher. Can Emily help Christopher learn to trust again? There are quite a few things that Emily does to show Christopher she wants to be his friend and I thought her character was sincere and charming. The book has some emotional moments that you won't forget. I can tell you that I did shed a few tears while reading the book. Will Christopher open up to Emily and share with her the pain he carries around? What will happen when Emily surprises Christopher with a very special gift? I loved reading this book that showed how important forgiveness and believing in yourself is . I received a complimentary copy of this book from The Fiction Guild. The review is my own opinion.

    After finishing the Courtship Basket, I jumped right into the Cherished Quilt. And, since it's release date is November 29, I refuse to spoil it for anyone.

    The youngest Fisher daughter, Emily, has watched her sisters fall in love, and despite her happiness for them, she is not wondering if there is someone out there for her too...

    When Christopher arrives at his Uncle Hank and Aunt Tillie's to stay, Emily doesn't know his story, but knows that he needs a friend. What is his story?

    If you want to know, you'll have to buy the book on November 29!

    Tuesday, November 15, 2016The Cherished Quilt by Amy Clipston, © 2016Amish Heirloom, Book 3My Review:We bring with us who we are. As Christopher Hostettler enters the Bird-in-Hand Harness Shop, his recent encounters come with him. Emily Fisher greets him and he is sullen. Certain it is her, she strives to bring him in as welcome and is met with unawareness. Recouping his long travel from Ohio to Pennsylvania, she suspects, he has arrived to work with his uncle Hank and Emily's father in the shop they co-own. Used to people responding to her, she is perplexed. How often do we take it on ourself when we don't know what the other person is going through? First impressions, first reactions?Relationship building takes time, thought, and mentally going back over what has been spoken before to keep it close in memory and heart.Wilmer Hochstetler experiences a beautiful freeing reversal in his life. From guilt and grief to love and acceptance. A healing only God can open a heart to receive.John Lantz. A heart of a child; carefree, open, unhampered. You will love John, continuing from the previous story! He is a stress-breaker, for sure.Basket lunches. You will want to take a peek and a whiff to see what today's special is. Such a freind-building experience!At the last page, you will be wanting to open up the fourth and final book in this series, The Beloved Hope Chest, and continue the journey of these families. So rich in experience and love guided by the One who loves us most.***Thank you author Amy Clipston for sending me an Advance Reader's Copy for review, as part of her street team.

    The Cherished Quilt by Amy Clipston is the third book in the Amish Heirloom series. Christopher “Chris” Hochstetler is reeling from the loss of his brother, Gabriel. His father, Wilmer blames Chris for Gabriel’s death. Chris needs to get away. He decides to visit his Uncle Hank in Bird-in-the-Hand, Pennsylvania (in Lancaster County). Chris will be working in his Uncle Hank’s and his partner, Leroy Fisher’s leatherworking shop. Emily Fisher, Leroy’s youngest daughter, can tell that something is bothering Chris and that he needs a friend. Emily goes out of her way to be friendly to Chris and get him to come out of his shell. Chris lacks confidence after years of criticism from his father. Emily slowly works with Chris and helps him gain confidence and overcome his grief (and guilt). As Chris’ birthday approaches, Emily wants to make him something special. After hearing the story of the quilt, he left behind at home, Emily wants to make him a replacement. Emily’s mother lets her have fabric from her Mammi’s (grandmothers) trunk. As Emily and Chris spend more time together, Emily starts to fall in love with him. Chris cares for Emily, but there is something that he has not told her. Will they be able to overcome Chris’ secret (an obstacle in their path) to have a happy ending or will Emily be left with a broken heart? Open The Cherished Quilt and step into the world of Emily, Chris, and their families in Lancaster County.The Cherished Quilt is a well-written (as are all of Amy Clipston’s novels) and easy to read. It is the third book in An Amish Heirloom Novel series, but you can read it alone. I do, though, recommend reading The Forgotten Recipe and The Courtship Basket. We do get updates on the characters from the previous novels. It was nice to see how they are faring in their new lives. I found the characters are likeable as well as relatable. They are the type of people you want to have as neighbors. I give The Cherished Quilt 4.5 out of 5 stars (I liked it). It was good to see how Chris changed over the course of the novel thanks to friendship, love, and rediscovering his beliefs. The Cherished Quilt deals with grief, forgiveness, friendship, love, and so much more. The ending is expected, but it will leave you with a smile on your face. We are left with a question unanswered at the end of The Cherished Quilt, and we must wait until the next novel to get the answer.

    Title: The Cherished Quilt (AN Amish Heirloom Novel #3)Author: Amy ClipstonPages: 320Year: 2016Publisher: ZondervanMy rating is 5 out of 5 stars.The series starts with The Forgotten Recipe followed by The Courtship Basket with the final book to be released this year titled, The Beloved Hope Chest. In the third book, The Cherished Quilt, we get to see the youngest of the Fisher daughters, Emily, learn to focus on her heart’s desires for once. Emily has a servant’s heart and has encouraged, comforted and loved her two older sisters without any thought of her future.When Emily meets Chris, who comes to work for her father and his uncle at the leather shop, she sees a very broken hearted man. Chris seems so distant, cold and not wanting to make any friends. Chris’ family lives in Pennsylvania and he has come to Ohio with the hope of starting life fresh after losing his youngest brother. Emily intends forging a friendship with Chris in the hopes he will experience what a loving family unit resembles.Throughout the series there is an element of a mystery surrounding Mattie Fisher and her hope chest. Mattie is the mother of three daughters who shares pieces of her past, but has yet to unveil a secret long hidden in the chest. Each novel is filled with characters that seem lifelike and who deal with everyday life as well as some highs and lows in the community.I hope that the fourth book will reveal the past Mattie has kept from her daughters even though readers have caught clues in the prior books. Amy Clipston writes with depth in her characters and doesn’t elevate the Amish community as better or worse than anyone else. These tales kept me reading for hours, entertaining as well as engaging my mind and heart. I think it is best to read all books in order to gain a full appreciation of the plot and characters the author wove quite well!Disclosure of Material Connection: I received one or more of the products or services mentioned above for free in the hope that I would mention it on my blog.
