The Cherished Quilt by Amy Clipston

Do you ever have a really great series?  One whose characters you come to love and just can't wait for the next installment?

This has been that series for me.  I have enjoyed every book more than the last one.  Amy Clipston does a fantastic job and every book gets better.  From the back: Tragedy tore Christopher’s world apart. But Emily believes there are enough pieces left behind to stitch together a beautiful new beginning.

Emily Fisher is eager to meet the new employee at her father’s shop in Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania. But when Christopher Hochstetler arrives, his cold demeanor freezes her attempts at building a friendship.

Longing for a fresh start, Christopher travels from Ohio to Bird-in-Hand to work at his uncle’s shop. Christopher’s heart is still wounded from memories of home, and making new friends is the last thing on his mind—he knows the pain that comes with losing those you love. When Emily is kind to him, he tries to remain distant, but he soon finds himself stealing glances at her throughout the day.

When Christopher shares his tragic reasons for leaving home, Emily decides to make a quilt for him as a gesture of their friendship. Even though he is not a member of the church, she’s found someone with whom she can imagine a future. The two are quickly falling in love when a family emergency calls Christopher back to Ohio without warning.

Emily finishes the quilt, in spite of her pain. But when Christopher receives it, will he have the courage to follow his heart? 

Amy Clipston's books get better and better.  She is really coming into her element as a writer and I enjoy each new book that she comes out with.  This book was filled with intense emotions and great characters. Emily and Chris are my favorite couple that Amy has done.  Their relationship starts out awkward and develops so beautifully as the story unfolds.  

The other supporting characters in the book were wonderful as well and we got to still keep up with the other sisters in the series but Emily was the shining star.  This was a hard book to put down and of course I STILL have NO IDEA what is in the chest so I'm just going to be left hanging until the last book!  

So if you are looking for a fantastic read pick up The Cherished Quilt and slip into a great story! Happy Reading!
