Publisher's Summary

Detachment had worked well as a life strategy for horse trainer Sam Schrock. Until he met Mollie Graber....

New to Stoney Ridge, schoolteacher Mollie has come to town for a fresh start. Aware of how fleeting and fragile life is, she wants to live it boldly and bravely. When Luke Schrock, new to his role as deacon, asks the church to take in foster girls from a group home, she's the first to raise her hand. The power of love, she believes, can pick up the dropped stitches in a child's heart and knit them back together. 

Mollie envisions sleepovers and pillow fights. What the 11-year-old twins bring to her home is anything but. Visits from the sheriff at midnight. Phone calls from the school truancy officer. And then the most humiliating moment of all: the girls accuse Mollie of drug addiction. 

There's only one thing that breaks through the girls' hard shell - an interest in horses. Reluctantly and skeptically, Sam Schrock gets drawn into Mollie's chaotic life. What he didn't expect was for love to knit together the dropped stitches in his own heart...just in time. 

Suzanne Woods Fisher invites you back to the little Amish church of Stoney Ridge for a touching story of the power of love.

Loved it

The story line flowed gently and the people felt like friends that I got to know and like. I loved the wisdom in the thoughts expressed and seeing how God interweaves events to show His love and mercy and restoration, this mirrors what I have personally seen. The narrator had a pleasing inflection in her voice and is lovely to listen to.

Sweet

Sweet story. Too many mundane details. Some of the best possible interactive moments are left out of the series. At the end of one book, you think you’re going to see the culmination of an event or relationship only to find that they’ve skipped past it in the next book. Why leave these out? The narrator is good but not great. She could speak with the Pennsylvania Dutch accent, but doesn’t. And her representation of ethnic groups didn’t carry those tones of voice or nuances either. Great narrators can do this well and it adds to the richness of the story. Since they are painting the scene for you with their voices, it’s very important that they portray them accurately. Her acting is good, not great. More depth of feeling would improve her performance.

Stitches in Time

Book 2 was just as good as Book 1. If you enjoy light Amish books then don't pass this series by!
