Book Review: A Christmas Quilt




I just finished reading Vanneta Chapman’s “The ChristmasQuilt”, one of the stories in the Quilts of Love series.  It was a good story with good characters and several really good messages.  I particularly liked the way the main characters were struggling with distance in their marriage, both realized their wrongdoings, and both pursued restoration.  I also liked the lead female characters’ discussions on the fruits of the spirit, and the way they used their baby quilt to help them ponder and integrate the fruits of the spirit into their lives.  I also liked reading about the struggle between Amish and modern living – and how both groups are learning to live together with honor and respect.  And I loved the spirit of strong family and friendship in the community.  With so many good things, I’m not sure why I never really got hooked on the story.  I was a little bit bored reading it, so I didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought I would.   Nevertheless, if you enjoy Amish fiction, then you should give the book a try.
I received this book as a gift from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
