Her Amish Wedding Quilt by Winnie Griggs is the first novel in the Hope’s Haven series. Her Amish Wedding Quilt is a sweet story. This is the first book that I have read by Winnie Griggs and I enjoyed it. Greta Eicher is a feisty main character. I like that she had spunk and spoke her mind. Greta likes who she is, and she was not going to change for anyone (hooray for her). Greta was also kind, thoughtful, caring, strong, creative, and a woman of faith. Noah is the strong silent type who cares deeply. He loves his family especially his two children, Anna and David. He just wanted what was best for his kids. Noah is a skilled craftsman who makes beautiful furniture. He is also kindhearted man who has had to make some tough decisions. I enjoyed the descriptions of Noah’s furniture and Greta’s beautiful quilts. I especially liked the word images of the special quilt Greta created after Calvin started courting another woman. I thought Her Amish Wedding Quilt was well-written with interesting characters and steady pacing. The romance progressed nicely. There were moments when I wanted to shake Noah. He began to care for Greta early on, but Noah was not willing to admit it nor venture into the love zone. I like how everything came together at the end for a heartwarming ending. There were some humorous moments throughout the story along with “awww’ moments with the darling kids and adorable kittens. The story does have some expected elements, but the rest of the story outweighed that aspect. Her Amish Wedding Quilt is a darling Amish tale with cute kittens, artistic quilt designs, fine furniture, a caring craftsman, a merry matchmaker, and Christmas cheer.
Her Amish Wedding Quilt is available from Amazon*. You can find Winnie Griggs' other novels here. Thank you for stopping by today. I hope that you will join me tomorrow. I am a stop on the Great Escapes Virtual Book Tour for Peppermint Cream Die by Carol Ayer tomorrow. It is the first book in The HSP Mysteries. I am off to work on the Christmas trees (everything is in boxes, but my mother wants her Christmas trees). I am very fortunate that the totes with the ornaments are easy to find. I wish it was as easy for us to agree on paint color and blinds. I know it will all work out in the end. I hope that you have a heartwarming day. Take care, be kind, and Happy Reading!
