Publisher's Summary

In the first in an engaging new series, an Amish quiltmaker moves from Pennsylvania to a new settlement in Colorado, where adventure, challenges, and love are waiting....

Esther Zook is starting over after her father's death, piecing together a new life with as much care as she puts into her intricate quilts. When her wayward sister abandons her baby, it throws all those plans for a fresh start asunder. Esther had accepted her status as an old maid - but a mother? And a single one, at that? Not that she hasn't noticed Levi Kiem, the eligible young man who's making repairs in her house. Yet he surely has no interest in Esther as anything other than a friend....

It's true that Levi has plenty of marriage prospects. His dat has even offered to send him to Ohio to find a wife. Yet the more time he spends with Esther, the more intrigued he becomes. Feisty and independent, she's nothing like the wife he once imagined for himself. Yet just as a quilt is crafted from contrasting cloth, they might find that together, they can create a family to cherish....

Narrator

The narrator is awful. Her voice is annoying- she over emphasizes at the end of each sentence. The story seems to be great , but the narrator makes it impossible to continue.

Annoying voice

Sorry, but the narrator’s voice was too “sing-songy” - her pitch was high and low - as if she were trying too hard. I ended up ignoring it during long stretches, but whenever I came back ti the book, it was a disappointing fact distraction all over again. In addition, she gave the main character’s speech an Irish accent (but she’s Amish, not Irish) in her dialogue.

The story was great fun, and I don’t mean to be critical., but you guys ask for feedback, so there you have it.

the accent is way off it sounds Irish

the narrator did an ok job but she gave them an Irish accent, so that is distracting. the ending is a little slow to get to the point. but over all not a bad book.

Bad narration, decent story

This was a nice story albeit a little drawn out, but the narrator was awful! She gave Colorado Amish an Irish accent, and there was very little differentiation between characters. I often lost track of which character was speaking.
