Marty Perry has done it again! Wrote an engaging tale with faith , hope, love and family. I especially liked the last chapter when John Mast the brother in law tried to bully Rebecca and Daniel, her brother Sam and her Dad stood strong behind Rebecca as she did it her self . ..Face to face and standing firm! Not anger, just facts! I loved how the friendship grew with Daniel and the little boy, Lige. Uncle Zeb. Had good advice! Most of all I liked the quilt shop and how it brought the English and Amish together , we quilters have heart. This is the first ever that I have vocally shouted "yes! " and "fist pump " after I read something that I agreed with most heartily : such as "we can't control Everything in life , even for those we love the most . We can only love them, do our best and trust the Lord for every thing else everything . Thank you for a great story

Yes her family but someone else - who you ask well I shall not ruin it for you but disappointment sets in When they see she has changed. Will she let others back into her life or will she stay the same and eventually alone - a single mom? Will she let GOD move in her life? Will she trust HIM to work on her?

Can two people who have been hurt by life and their beliefs come together as more than friends? The author has given us a glimpse into Amish life from a different angle, as we journey through the hurts and upsets that have been heaped on them by life and the actions of others. We are given a new beginning for a mother and her young son, and we get to see the building of a quilt shop, which if it were near me I would be using, and we see the giving spirit of an old friend. Can even the young child overcome all that has happened, and move on with a fruitful life? We get to watch this through the words of the author, and you will be quickly turning the pages to get to the outcome. I received this book through the Publisher Harlequin, and was not required to give a positive review.

This sweet book had everything I wish for in an Amish romance. A comforting sense of community, strong family loyalty, and a blossoming love from a childhood friendship. I loved how Rebecca and Daniel warmed up to each other quickly even though they had both changed as time had passed. They brought out the best in each other and Daniel helped Rebecca remember what the support of loving friends and family looked like. She struggled with accepting the unconditional help, but as she began to slowly open up to those she trusted, she was able to let go of her past and see that she is not alone. The chemistry between Rebecca and Daniel is great and it was fun to see them move from friends to more. Reading this book gave me a warm feeling and I recommend it to fans of Amish fiction!

The Wedding Quilt Bride was a sweet tale of learning to trust again and learning to love again. I so enjoyed watching as Rebecca and Daniel grew to be friends again and eventually more. It wasn’t an easy journey for either of them. They both carried guilt and were weighed down with doubts. There were a lot of interesting characters in this story, and although this was book two in a series, it stood alone just fine. Now I want to go back and read the first book in the series and learn more about the two main characters in that book! The Wedding Quilt Bride tackled some tough issues, yet managed to remain an uplifting story. I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

The Wedding Quilt Bride by Marta Perry My review is 4.5 Stars While I often equate the Amish with a close-knit community and families that stand up for one another, I don’t believe I have read another Amish book that highlights this as much or as well as The Wedding Quilt Bride. Author Marta Perry has done such a beautiful job of showing how families can work together to support and care for one another in this lovely book. I was so touched by the kind way Daniel treated Lige, Rebecca’s son. (His full name is Elijah, so I imagine the nickname is pronounced like that.) While he was amazing with children in general, the scene when they first met and he worked so hard, yet so naturally, to draw a smile from the young boy also brought a smile to my face. His strong sense of responsibility and protectiveness towards those he loves made him quite endearing. Rebecca had such a hard time allowing herself to rely on others or to allow them to help after the pain she endured in her marriage, including the way her in-laws responded to her needs. The response of her own family and the community to her was so beautiful. I loved seeing them help her set up her shop. And then on the day the quilt shop opened, not only showing up but buying things they didn’t necessarily need. This story stands on its own, and yet had hints of a new story to come. I do hope that the next book will be about Daniel’s little brother. I would love to know how his story ends. This review was originally posted on AmongTheReads.net I would like to thank Love Inspired for giving me this item. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.

The last book I chose to read was THE WEDDING QUILT BRIDE and it was so good. I fell in love with Daniel and Rebecca and sweet little Lige and wanted them to find happiness. This was one of the better Love Inspired romances I've ever read and I'm glad I had an opportunity to read it. Rebecca is a quilt maker, owns a quilt / fabric shop and is struggling to make it alone but with close family and old friends, like it or not, people want to help her. She also wants to keep her past secret, but family know. Daniel is hurting because his brother left the Amish and he thinks he failed him. He has closed his heart to love, but his old friend Rebecca still holds a piece of his heart. Sweet Lige steals it. If you like Amish romances, you will love Marta Perry's book THE WEDDING QUILT BRIDE. I was given a copy free. All opinions are my own

The Wedding Quilt Bride by Marta Perry is the second story in Brides of Lost Creek series. Rebecca Mast has returned home to Lost Creek with her six-year-old son, Elijah. Rebecca lost her husband, James six months ago and sold her farm to her brother-in-law, John. The down payment she received will finance her new home and the remodeling of the front room for her quilt shop. Rebecca hires her childhood friend, Daniel King to carry out her vision. Daniel is happy to have his friend back, but he notices that she is not the same. She is withdrawn, thin, pale and seems haunted. Daniel is hoping that over time Rebecca will trust him and confide in him. While working on the shop with Rebecca, Daniel begins to fall in love with his friend. But then Rebecca receives a letter that could derail her plans for the shop. Rebecca is determined to stand on her own two feet. Can Daniel get Rebecca to accept his help and that of her community? Will Rebecca be able to overcome the past? The Wedding Quilt Bride is well-written and an engaging novel. I was drawn into the story and it held my attention. There are beautiful descriptions of quilts in the story. Ms. Perry brought the quilts alive with her words. The story is told from Rebecca and Daniel’s perspectives. While Rebecca is trying to overcome her past, Daniel is dealing with guilt. His brother, Aaron “jumped the fence” is Daniel feels responsible for him leaving the Amish. There are great characters in the story. They are warm and welcoming. Rebecca has a loving and supportive family. The Wedding Quilt Bride is a complex story with unexpected surprises. There are several themes in the story, but my favorite is everyone deserves a second chance. We are far from perfect, and we will inevitably make mistakes. We need to trust in God and let Him guide us. I like that the author portrays life realistically. Life is full of hills and valleys. There are good people and there are those who will try to take advantage of you. While The Wedding Quilt Bride is the second novel in Brides of Lost Creek series, it stands on its own (I look forward to reading the first book when I have an opportunity). The Wedding Quilt Bride is a heartwarming story that will hold you captive until you finish the last word.

Rating: 4.5/5 This is an emotive second chance romance involving two people who had grown up as best friends but have had years apart. Rebecca had returned to her home community after the death of her husband. She has a six year old son, Elijah, and is determined to use her skills to enable her to be independent bringing him up. Daniel King used to be her best friend and is determined to help her settle into her new home, using his carpentry skills to help create the quilt shop she is endeavouring to set up. However, their easy camaraderie has disappeared and they are more like strangers in many ways. Elijah is also very wary of strangers and shouts seem to terrify him. Daniel isn’t the same, either, after his younger brother chose to leave the Amish way of life and Daniel feels responsible for this. Can they overcome their past to give their friendship and mutual attraction a chance to develop? Can they learn to trust each other? This is a delightful story showing how the whole community, including her family, welcome back Rebecca and her son. They are so supportive, helpful and considerate - even when she is so reticent to accept it. It is a heartwarming story with great characters, some surprises along the way and a lovely romance. It is a story about learning to trust again in yourself, those you love and in God. I’d love to see some of the beautifully describe wedding quilts. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and have no hesitation in highly recommending it to anyone who enjoys Amish romances - and if you’ve never read any, this would be a good one to try! I’ll certainly be looking out for more by this author and in this series in future! I requested and was lucky enough to be given a copy of this novel, via NetGalley, with no obligation. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.

I would stand on my own two feet.” “Nothing wrong with that,” Daniel said, “except that it’s not the Amish way.We help one another, as you know very well. Her six-year old son, trudged next to her, holding tight to her hand rather than skipping and hopping ahead down the lane like one of his cousins would. Daniel crossed the distance between them and stood smiling at her. “What’s wrong? Can’t find anything else to say?” His voice teased her gently.And you don’t turn down otherjobs to work for me.” “I remember she went away that summer—out to Ohio to help a cousin of hers who was moving. She stayed quite a time, and then we heard she’d met someone and was going to marry him.” We’d always been such gut friends, but she didn’t write to me about him at all.” Can Daniel convince Rebecca he’s a man she can trust and love? read this book to find out.
