Stitches in time was a fun read.
I’m not a huge fan of Amish fiction but I fell in love with this author’s writing style on page one. Honestly, I loved all of it a whole lot. The Amish community was so much more… decent, in this book, as opposed to the last one I read. It made me appreciate the love they can give, the tight-knit community, and the importance of doing what’s RIGHT rather than what people want you to do. But it was done in such a pure, non-preachy way!
I loved each and every one of the main characters. I loved Luke Schrock’s personality. I loved his dynamic relationship with his wife and the way that he handled growing, the dynamic character that he grew to become at the end.
I liked Mollie well enough. She seemed way too bouncy and cheerful, and then she crashed and burned sort of. Her condition kind of came out of nowhere, and I sort of feel like it’s possible that whole part of the story came late in the author’s writing and didn’t get tied into the beginning as it possibly could have been.
The only one thing that I wasn’t 100% thrilled about was “the baby project” between Luke and his wife. It wasn’t inappropriate, but it was sort of like funny to read the way they talked about it. Just thought I’d mention it for younger readers.
Honestly, I say it was a five star read. Pick it up if you get the chance some time in the future. 😀 I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review. All thoughts and opinions are my own and a positive review was not required.
Live, Laugh, and Love, girls.
