If you thought Amish nurse Annie's story in "A Simple Amish Christmas" was `gut', then you'll shout `wunderbaar' to this Annie sequel that takes place three years later. Ya, `tis a sequel with many returning characters but this celebrated Amish author writes so it can be read as a stand-alone. I recommend both. The earlier book remains a holiday hit.

Vannetta Chapman spikes a winning literary shot over the Amish volleyball net with "The Christmas Quilt." Lines of stitched characters and plots cross often in this story involving a newborn `boppli' crib quilt. Chapman's writing style is so beautifully homespun that a reader needs not be Amish, or Christian, to get enchanted.

This Christmas book focuses more on `bopplin' than horses, and is very family oriented. What better plot could there be for an Amish Christmas story than a baby's birth? This book holds stocking stuffer potential for the ladies, especially Amish fans and quilters. As a male reader I enjoy the pioneer period resemblance of Amish genre. `Fraa's' can bake huckleberry pudding for your man's Amish-style Second Christmas (day after) treat.

An obvious appliqué theme to The Christmas Quilt story is Gotte's spirit fruits of Galatians 5: love, joy, peace . . . all parallel to the spirits of Christmastime.
A book text quote: "A blessing for certain."

While waiting for your ordered book arrival, read this e-FREE short story by Chapman.

The Christmas Quilt

During her rumschpringe, Annie Weaver studied and became a nurse and after her return home married Amish healer Widower Samuel Yoder (see A Simple Amish Christmas). Since coming back to Mifflin County, Pennsylvania three years ago, Annie and Samuel provide medical care to their neighbors.

She and her sister-in-law Leah Weaver are pregnant with the latter carrying twins. Annie vows to create a quilt for her friend before Leah gives birth. When Leah goes into premature labor, Belinda the midwife insists she goes to Mercy Hospital where Annie once worked as a nurse. Annie stays at her friend's side while working on the quilt. Each shares their trepidations of being first time mothers and their belief that God led them to being BFFs so that the nurse is there for the patient.

The latest Quilts of Love inspirational (see Raw Edges by Sandra D. Bricker, Pieces of the Heart by Bonnie Calhoun and A Healing Heart by S. Dionne Moore) is a gripping family drama as the two pregnant best buddies strongly believe God purposely guided them to become friends for this moment. Character driven by a strong cast, especially the faith-filled lead females, readers will appreciate this entertaining Amish tale.

The Christmas Quilt is a long-awaited return to the family we visited in A Simple Amish Christmas; Annie and Samuel, Leah and Adam, Rebekah and Jacob. Annie and Leah are anticipating the births of their first children. Annie decides to make a quilt for Leah's twins, and her decision to finish it before the babies are born becomes a mission for her and Leah. There are many nuggets of wisdom in this story for newlyweds, for new parents, for seasoned parents....as we travel this journey with them. Once again Vannetta Chapman has woven God's gifts to us into the fabric of her book, gently guiding the readers into a sweetly simple faith grounded in trust that He knows what He is doing in our lives, and everything we go through will become some sort of blessing.

Since The Christmas Quilt is a sequel to A Simple Amish Christmas, this book was like a visit with old friends - you pick up where you left off, no matter how much time has passed. This story was a joy to read. I kept snatching a few minutes here and there to read, because I didn't have much reading time, but I needed to know the latest on Leah. I loved the significance of each quilt square being tied back to Scripture and a story shared between Annie, Leah, and their friends. The quilt became much more than just a baby blanket. Vannetta's latest book succeeded in putting me in the Christmas spirit!

With thanks to the author and Abingdon Press for my review copy.

Annie took advantage of her rumspringa to become a nurse. After returning to her Amish roots Annie married SamuelYoder who is an herbalist tending to the medical needs of the community. Together Annie and Samuel have assisted in numerous medical situations. The local midwife had asked for their assistance in monitoring Annie's dearest friend and sister-in-law, Leah, who is pregnant with twins and due to deliver in less than two months. Annie and Leah are as close as sisters, and with Annie also pregnant the two are excited about raising their children together. Annie has been planning to make a quilt for Leah's bopplin, but is slow in starting it. She finally has all of the fabrics and is ready to begin when Leah goes into early labor and is taken to a Philadelphia hospital with a neonatal intensive care unit in case the babies are born too soon. Leah's husband, Adam has daily farm necessities to tend to, and with Annie's nursing experience he agrees for his sister to stay with Leah at the hospital where she had worked as a nurse. With much time on their hands Leah and Annie work on the quilt while they share their deepest feelings, and pray for God's presence in their lives. Each square has a special significance.

In this Quilts of Love story numerous issues are broached. Leah and Adam's relationship had become stressful and communication had broken down. The stress of Leah's early labor brought numerous emotions and possible complications to the surface. As Leah and Annie spend a great deal of time in prayer and discussion their faith is increased. Vannetta Chapman has written a beautiful Amish romance interlaced with stressful circumstances and questioned faith while blending the lives of an Amish family and strengthening their ties.
