The Memory Quilt by Lenora Worth is a sweet story. I thought the story contained good writing with developed characters. We get to know the King family who run the Shadow Lake Inn. Abigail’s parents have given Abigail the running of the inn because they have health issues. I did find it curious how Abigail was able to spend so much time caring for Jonah when she was responsible for a busy inn. There is a mystery regarding Jonah’s identity and how he ended up injured. No one seems to be looking for him either. There is some suspense near the end. I wish there had been more clues for the reader so they could try to solve the mystery before the reveal (I love solving mysteries). I would have liked a little more action as that would have increased the stories pacing. There was also repetition of information. I enjoyed reading about Abigail’s unique quilt. The King family were a close-knit unit with caring parents who wanted to make sure their daughters stayed on the straight and narrow. They did not want to risk gossip about their girls or that one of them would jump the fence. The descriptions of the area around the inn sounded beautiful. It would be a wonderful place to go on vacation. The Memory Quilt is a unique Amish novel with fragmented memories, considerate sisters, apprehensive parents, a compassionate maedel, an upsetting situation, and a sticky situation.
