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.

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.

Emma's Quilting Classes.

I just love the characters in the quilting classes. They are all so different with so many twists and turns going on in their lives. These stories are so fun to read. The main character, Emma, is wonderful. I need to find the next book in the series and get reading.

Enjoyed listening to this.

Easy to follow and listen to. Enjoyed the story line, albeit quite a simple one. Very relaxing to unwind with.
