About the Book

Barbara Breaks from Amish Tradition to Express Her Artistry

Full of faith, hope, and romance, this new series takes you into the Heart of Amish country.

Barbara Schwartz was born into a family of quilters, but she would rather eat dirt than partake in another quilting frolic or sew on another binding. When her parents send her to Indiana to help her grandmother in her quilting shop, she finds herself amongst a very different community. It’s only one summer and then she will be back in Kentucky where she belongs.

Melvin Bontrager’s world stopped six years ago when his parents died. Now when his only means of providing for his widowed sister and niece is threatened, Melvin finds his landscaping business disappearing too. When spring delivers a newcomer who is immune to his salty moods, Melvin does something he has never done before, accepts help.

What blooms is the last thing Barbara ever expected, and everything Melvin could ever want.

Review of The Flower Quilter

The Flower Quilter was such a great book. Shipshawana is not far from where I live and we started going down there often last year. The author described it so well, even to the restaurants and how the town is laid out. I could envision the different things we experienced there, including the quilt shops. It was a great read and made me feel as though I was back, and reminded me I need to ask my husband if we can get a trip in before winter. Great story, great characters and I can’t wait to read more from this author.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher but was under no obligation to give it a positive review. All opinions listed are my honest opinions

Thanks for connecting today.
