Publisher's Summary

Annie's life is deliciously full as the Christmas season approaches. She helps her husband, Samuel, attend to the community's minor medical needs. She occasionally assists Belinda, the local midwife, and most days, she finds herself delivering the buggy to her brother, Adam. Annie's sister-in-law, Leah, is due to deliver their first child before Christmas morning, and Annie is determined to finish a crib quilt before the boppli arrives. With six weeks to go, she should have no problem... but God may have a different plan. Leah is rushed to the English hospital when the infant arrives early, and Annie discovers the Christmas quilt may hold a far greater significance than she ever imagined.

Second Chance - Epic Fail

I read two books by this author set in the same family this Christmas season. All I can say is that this woman needs to do a lot more research if she’s going to be writing about Amish people. Having spent much time with Amish friends, these books were so far from ringing true that it’s not funny. I also suspect that she has never been in Mifflin County. The weather was WAY off, particularly in the first book! My RN nurse friend rolled her eyes at the medical depictions. And to top off the horrors, the reader on this book seemed to think that men’s voices should be depicted by speaking tightly and nasally instead of deepening her voice, which made one of the main characters sound like a twerpie pervert. I cringed every time he spoke, and the other men weren’t much better. And it is NOT pronounced “Go-tay!” Bethany Lind should either never be allowed to read a man’s voice or should get some vocal training. This book is a definite thumbs down, and I wouldn’t recommend either the author or the reader.

Sweet Amish story

This story was really sweet. It had a quilting theme with Amish characters and expectant mothers. One is carrying twins who decide to come early. It was a precious story about friendship, Godly principles, family & quilting.

Liked

I was so happy to find the continuation of Annie and Samuel's story. The voice narration for Samuel, Adam, and the other men is not very good.

Charming

Really enjoyed the warm descriptions and attention to descriptive details in this book and series. The details about the quilt patterns woven into the stories makes it even more meaningful!
Thank you, Author Chapman for taking us to a place with heart warming priorities and values

Could not finish

I so thoroughly enjoyed the first story about Annie Weaver that I was excited to find another. However, I find the narrator impossible to listen to on this book. I suppose I'll be reading this one the old fashioned way.

The Bonds of Family, Quilting and Babies

This wonderful tale of two first time expectant mothers awaiting the birth of their boppli while quilting and facing the daily challenges of Amish life warmed my heart. The strained relationships between the widow, Rachel, who had bought the country store was a mystery to everyone. Rachel had moved from Ohio to Pennsylvania with her two young sons to be near family. When some of the family had finally had enough, wise Jacob Weaver, the crippled patriarch who saw beyond the terse words, turned the situation into an opportunity to teach his son, Adam about pain . . . and love. The quiet, contemplative ways of the Amish have long had an impact on me, as many Amish moved in close to my childhood home in Kentucky, and I’ve had opportunity to talk and buy their goods over the years from generations of the same family. As from a different time and place, a goodness, a solidness prevails with them, one which has seemingly slipped away from most Americans. So, listening to The Christmas Quilt was a balm to my soul. The Amish are not without problems, not without conflict, or pain. And I’m very glad that the author hasn’t candy coated their lives, instead she paints a portrait of community, faith and an interesting interdependence upon the English world, while still preserving their unique separate ways. Excellent listen!

Such love in a nine patch quilt

Wonderfully written book. Each chapter holding your attention and the epilogue left me wanting more. Can't wait to see what the future holds

Amish Romance

It's been a long time since I've read or listened to an Amish story. I enjoyed the quilt stories very much! I especially loved their growth in God and their improved marriage because of prayers and their difficulties.
The narration was well done but a few of the men's voices seemed awful odd to me.

This was a lovely story

An unusual story, with great depth.
the narrator was a little quirky, but I got used to her.
