Lilly's Wedding Quilt by Kelly Long
Lilly's Wedding Quilt is the story of Lilly Lapp the local Amish school teacher and Jacob Wyse the handsome horse breeder from her community. When an incident of chance brings them together, together they may need to stand to survive the afternoon. Jacob is mending a broken heart. Lilly isn't looking for love. Jacob offers his hand in marriage to Lilly, while his heart belongs to another. Lilly has a comforter's heart, taking care of her mother, the children of the community, and rises to help Jacob. God works to bring this pair together in a way only he could. But will they stay that way?
This book was amazing. I couldn't put it down, and read it in one day. It was a sweet romantic story that weaved in Amish culture respectfully. The story was believable, characters well thought out, and the plot evolved at a wonderful pace.
It's not often I find a book that I enjoy so much. Perhaps it's my Hutterite heritage that drew me to the book, but the wonderful messages within the book were what kept me reading.
I found myself repeatedly stopping and thinking of how God has worked in my life, where I need to step back and listen.
A wonderful group guide is included with thought-provoking questions.
I would definitely recommend this to someone looking for a sweet romance, well thought out characters and plot lines, and an inspiring message.
