The Hawaiian Quilt




The Hawaiian Quilt by Wanda E. Brunstetter and Jean Brunstetter. Ohio: Shiloh Run Press, 2016. 279 pages. ***** Recipes, History of Hawaiian Quilts and Discussion Questions included.


Twenty-year-old Mandy Frey seems to have it all...a loving family, an Amish boyfriend who wants to marry her, three best friends and yet, she yearns to visit Hawaii. Convincing her three friends to go with her on this trip of a lifetime, Mandy's adventurous spirit leaves her and one of those friends stranded in Hawaii. An unexpected prolonged stay forces Mandy to re-evaluate what is important to her and to make life altering decisions. Gideon is waiting for her in Indiana, but handsome and fun-loving Ken is in Hawaii. Which one will Mandy choose and how does a Hawaiian quilt bring her true love?

Wanda and Jean as a team keep getting better and better. I love that they have branched out to Hawaii and brought Hawaiian quilts into the story. Hawaiian quilts are unique and complex, representative of the beauty of the islands. The writing team has captured the sights and smells of the islands in their descriptions of the Vog, flowers, water and sand. They never disappoint and this book is probably one of my favorites (I know I say that with every new release).  Their books provide comfort, inspiration, and solace in this crazy world in which we live. 

I received it with a copy of Amish Quilts: Giftable Inspiration Along With Quilting Tips and the Wanda E. Brunstetter's Amish Friends Harvest Cookbook. All three will make a wonderful holiday gift to your favorite person!

I received a copy for review. 

New York Times bestselling author, Wanda E. Brunstetter and her husband live in Washington State but take every opportunity to visit friends in Amish settlements throughout the States.

Jean Brunstetter enjoys writing about her Amish friends' simple way of life, and takes every opportunity to visit Amish communities.
