Amy Clipston has done in again with The Cherished Quilt, the third book in her Amish Heirloom Series. This book is packed with relatable characters and touches the human emotions through a story of looking beyond yourself and showing kindness to someone in need of forgiveness and healing.
After an accident takes the life of a family member and Christopher Hochstetler has a fight with his father, he is carrying a huge weight with him when he arrives in Bird-in-Hand. Hoping to find comfort in Pennsylvania, Christopher begins working at his uncle’s shop.
While Christopher is new in town and looking for a fresh start, he isn’t exactly the one seeking to become best friends with the neighbors. Emily Fisher, daughter of Christopher’s uncle, is excited to meet her father’s new employee. Her excitement isn’t met with the enthusiasm she hoped when she first meets Christopher and is met with his cold demeanor.
Throughout the story, Emily shows kindness to Christopher. Amy did a great job of making these characters relatable. I enjoyed Emily’s character and how she showed kindness to someone who didn’t immediately show it back to her.
As I have with this whole series, I loved the different “Amish” elements Amy used as central points in the books. In this case, the quilt. I loved learning more about the Amish and some of the treasures that are important through this series.
I have come to know and love reading about the characters in this series. This was another great installment in the series and the next to the last one. I’m actually saddened by that because I’m really enjoying this series! I will say, I’m highly anticipating the next, and final, book in this series.
