Publisher's Summary

More lives need some mending.... Amish widow-turned-newlywed Emma Yoder Miller begins another quilting class with a new group of unlikely students, all with tattered pieces of their lives that need mending. Selma is a belittling busybody. Terry is a rugged roofer who just wants a casual date with a pretty classmate. Blaine loses a bet and has to join the class, where he soon finds himself in friendly competition with Terry. Anna’s mother signs her up in a desperate attempt to keep Anna from leaving the Amish faith.

Carmen holds tightly to bitterness while hiding her secret motives for taking the class. And Cheryl has a broken, mistrusting heart that needs just as much mending as the tattered quilt she brings. Members of this new patchwork group find friendship, faith, healing, and restoration while gathered around their quilts, under the Father’s guiding hands - for only He can take what’s ragged and shabby from the lives of His children and turn it into beauty for His glory.

    I love Christian fiction and cozy mysteries. I'm blind now, so I listen to all my books.

    Story
    "The Tattered Quilt"
    What did you love best about The Tattered Quilt?

    All of the characters were entertaining and enchanting. Some of them didn't start that way. I love quilting and stories of the Amish, so that was intriguing as well.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The best part was how the class and the instructors lives unfolded and problems were overcome. There were also several unpredictable moments.


    Which character – as performed by Renee Ertl – was your favorite?

    Emma was probably my favorite character being narrated. I could picture her quite clearly.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but it usually takes me a few days.


    Any additional comments?

    Mrs. Brunstteter's books are always enjoyable and I listen to all I can find. I do hope there's more in this series. Ms. Ertl did an excellent job reading the story. She's quite natural and does an excellent job with all of the characters. I look forward to listening to more narrations by her as well.

    Story
    "Sweet Story and lovable characters."
    If you could sum up The Tattered Quilt in three words, what would they be?

    encouraging, delightful, sweet


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Tattered Quilt?

    I liked the way the quilt class came together and the details of each character who attended. I could see some of my short comings in several characters and it helped me realize how I must come across sometime. I am determined to be a better person after listening to this book.


    Have you listened to any of Renee Ertl’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    N/A


    Who was the most memorable character of The Tattered Quilt and why?

    Emma, she has such a gentle spirit and strong faith in God. She brings calm to all circumstances.


    Any additional comments?

    I am a quilter and was at the sewing machine quilting while I listened. What a peaceful perfect way to listen. I might be imagining things but I think my quilt even went together better. LOL

    Story
    "Quilts, friendships, love and God--"

    This is the second book built around shattered, unhappy, and needy lives. Emma Yoder Miller was a widow who found her wonderful new husband in the last quilting class. Now she continues to run six week quilting classes, with her husband, for the people that God sends her. A strange group of people have found themselves beginning classes whether they want to or not.

    Anna is 18 and wants to experience life outside of her Amish community, but her mother has signed her up for this class in hope of keeping her from the Englishers. Selma was gifted with these classes by a neighbor who finds her abrasive attitudes in need of attention. Terry is a blue collar guy who sees a pretty girl in the class and decides to join in hopes of getting a date. Blain just lost a fishing bet and grudgingly goes to class as a looser. Carmen has her own secret motive, and Cheryl just wants her favorite grandmother's quilt mended and stays around for the class.

    This book takes this rag muffin group into the perfect place for them to learn that God is watching out for all his people, and has a plan for everyone to find joy in his presence within their own different and varied lives. Emma is the catalyst, and quilting is the means for great lessons and conversations about life, love, family and God. I really enjoy this series and hope it continues with more books.
