I really enjoyed this story of a young Amish woman trying to find her place in the world. Mary Katherine has still not been baptized in the church because she doesn't feel as if she really belongs. She does love her work weaving in the shop she shares with her two cousins and grandmother. She has always been creative and that is just one more way her father finds fault with her.
When two young men she's known for years start to show interest in her, will one of them convince her to join the church? Will she choose the man who has settled in her community, the one visiting from exotic Florida, or leave and join the Englisch world?
This is book one in the Stitches in Time series and I actually read book two first and really liked it. Here's a link to my review: The Heart's Journey. I just had to find out the story behind Mary Katherine, so requested this one. It's helpful to read them in order because there was some information revealed in this one that led into book two, but it's not necessary. I like the coziness of this family and their shop and would love to hang out with them and learn how to quilt or knit. The characters and dialogue are realistic and the romance sweet. I like getting the perspectives of the main characters and had a hard time putting this one down! I'm definitely looking forward to reading about the last cousin in Heart in Hand, the third book that just came out in February!
I received this book free from Abingdon Press in exchange for an honest review.
