My Thoughts: I love books authored by Wanda Brunstetter! And now her daughter-in-law, Jean, co-authors this wonderful novel, the Hawaiian Quilt.
This is not your "regular" Amish story. In this lovely story about four Amish friends who take a cruise to the Hawaiian Islands.
The cruise is nice but the beds not.so.much to the four friends disappointment. Love the real descriptions of the ship and the "funny.to.me" reason Mandy and her three friends decide to take a cruise because their Amish parents wouldn't approve of flying in an airplane.
When Mandy and her friends decide to split up in to two groups of two to see more Hawaii and then share their experiences later at supper, Mandy loses her phone and this incident causes she and Ellen to miss the ship.
I love the Hawaiian Christian couple, Luana and Mikaio, who take them in at the bed and breakfast and whose Hawaiian quilts fascinate Mandy.
This is not your "regular" Amish read! It's about stepping out of your comfort zone and embracing life and God's people.
Loved, loved this fantabulous read!
Make sure to buy a copy for that Amish reader on your Christmas list!
