The Christmas Quilt,
This review is from: The Christmas Quilt (Love Inspired) (Mass Market Paperback)
Gideon Troyer left his Amish community years ago after his long-time lover, Rebecca Beachy, rejected him. He fulfilled his dreams of becoming a pilot, and made more money than he knows what to do with. But returning home is the last thing on his agenda--until he sees a television broadcast about a quilt auction to help fund a surgery to hopefully restore sight to a blind Amish woman--Rebecca Beachy.
Rebecca is attracted to the unseen English man who appears at her side at the auction, and feels that he is familiar, but she can't place why. She is stunned to learn that he buys her quilt and hurries to thank him. He says he's leaving, but an ice storm keeps him stranded at the same hotel she's staying at. The next day, Rebecca and Gideon spend the day together, but she still doesn't realize who he really is.
Will Gideon be able to give up his planes and freedom and return to life as an Amish man? Will Rebecca ever forgive him for leaving her and taking her heart?
THE CHRISTMAS QUILT is a beautiful Christmassy story set in Ohio. It is the fifth book in Ms. Davis' Brides of Amish Country series, but it easily stands alone. I enjoyed getting to know Gideon and Rebecca.
I haven't read all of Ms. Davids' books, but out of the ones I've read, I liked this one the best. It was a good way to spend the day after Thanksgiving, relaxing and reading. I enjoyed the characters and the setting and of course, the romance. If you are looking for a good Christmassy Amish romance, then THE CHRISTMAS QUILT is a good book to consider. Discussion questions are included at the end.
