The Amish Quiltmaker's Unconventional Niece
Quilt making, troublemaking, and matchmaking create a sweetly entertaining mix in this inspirational romance series featuring resourceful Colorado quiltmaker Esther Kiem—from USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Beckstrand, beloved, award-winning inspirational romance author of the Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill, The Honeybee Sisters, and The Petersheim Brothers series. Will appeal to fans of Charlotte Hubbard, Amy Lillard, and Emma Miller.
Mattie Zook always stands up for what’s right—which is why she’s been exiled from her Pennsylvania Dutch home to her Aunt Esther’s farm. Outraged at local discrimination against the Amish, she’s using her rumschpringe to run for town council. Esther can only hope that sensible local farmer Freeman Sensenig will help Mattie—and keep her from going too far. But Mattie is soon finding her new campaign manager all too appealing . . .
Freeman never thought that the standoffish, opinionated Mattie would care so much about others. Even more amazing, their differences are somehow making her campaign successful—and have him hoping for more of a future with her. But unexpected obstacles and a sudden romantic rival will put their growing closeness to the test—and give them only one chance to truly reconcile their hearts . . .
The Amish Quiltmaker’s Unconventional Niece by Jennifer Beckstrand is an amusing Amish tale.
It is the third book in The Amish Quiltmaker series. It can be read as a standalone if you are new
to the series, but you will be missing out on some entertaining stories. Jennifer Beckstrand has an engaging writing
style. Her stories are easy to read with
humor throughout. I loved Mattie
Zook. She is a spunky Amish woman who
will fight for what is right. Filing a
lawsuit nor running for an office are the Amish way, but Mattie is not going to
let that stop her. Freeman Sensenig and
his twin sisters (Sarah and Sadie) were fun.
I enjoyed the sibling banter (and bickering). There is a great cast with differing
personalities. Cathy, an Englischer, who
supported Mattie running for office (in her own way) and let us not forget the color-blind
Caleb who likes to work on puzzles (he breaks out in a sweat when he lies or
does something he feels is wrong).
We get to travel to Byler,
Colorado which has a small Amish population.
I did not blame Mattie for trying to get the new Amish buggy law repealed. If you cannot travel the main streets, it is
next to impossible to get anywhere by buggy.
There is a touch of romance. I am
glad it was not the predominant feature in the book (there was just enough). I had mixed feelings about the ending (I do
not want to spoil it for you). I like
that the author left us laughing. We do
get to catch up with the characters from The Amish Quiltmaker’s Unexpected Baby
and The Amish Quiltmaker’s Unruly In-Law.
The Amish Quiltmaker’s Unconventional Niece is a fun, unconventional
Amish novel. I was sorry when my time in
Byler, Colorado came to an end. The Amish Quiltmaker’s Unconventional Niece is a witty tale with an unbalanced
buggy law, sassy twin sisters, a plethora of puzzles, unkind election hijinks, beholding
a bevy of sunsets, and campaign consequences.
