also loses her fiancé to the fire.

Will Abby be able to pull her life together out of the ashes or will she allow this double tragedy to come between her and God?

The Amish romance the Quilter's Daughter is a must-read if you are into trilogies and it holds its own as a stand-alone book. It's the second novel in the Daughters of Lancaster County series following The Storekeeper's Daughter which set the stage for the story of the kidnapping of Amish baby,

Zach, by Jim Scott.

The Quilter's Daughter initially takes place in Holmes County which has the largest population of Amish in the state of Ohio. Millersburg is the largest city with other Amish towns, Berlin, Charm, Sugarcreek, and Walnut Creek not far away.

I love that Brunstetter throws out the reference to quilts in her first sentence.

Abby Miller loves everything to do with quilts and runs a popular quilt shop in Holmes County. The town is a tourist area, Amish quilts are in demand and many women are expecting. So, Abby has a lot on her plate.

Furthermore, we learn that Abby has a hope chest and dreams of marrying Lester who has been courting her for 4 years. Abby receives a handkerchief for her hope chest. Affixed is a note from her mom. This note is a daunting prelude to what is to come.

Meanwhile, we learn that Zach is now 6 years old.

Abby goes off to Lancaster Pennsylvania to help out her mom Fannie who is expecting twins. It's tourist season and Abby has her hands full. Abby helps run Fannie's quilt shop and tends to others' needs while there.

It is good that Lester takes some time off from Blacksmithing to come to Lancaster for a visit. When he returns home they correspond through letters. Abby has been having nightmares, though, that are quite troubling....

Well, that is where I leave this review.

As I mentioned in an earlier posting I borrowed this book from my mom for my book club read. Mom hasn't read the book and already informed me, "Don't spoil it for me, Lori." Notwithstanding this, Mom knows that life for Amish is not easy and during hardships, one often relies on faith to help them move forward
