Sisters of the Quilt

I'm not a huge reader, but I do love a good book.  I went over to my mother-in-law's house, she is an avid reader, and scanned her library.  I blindly picked up a book and ended up LOVING IT!!  It by author, Cindy Woodsmall and the book is When the Heart Cries.  Little funny, I was reading the book, very much enjoying it and then when it ended, I threw it down and was pretty upset.  I looked at Sean and said, "She didn't wrap it up for me, I need more".  He said, "so it needs to be a series?"  Absolutely!  So I picked it back up and right there, down at the bottom it said Sisters of the Quilt, Book 1. :-)
So I quickly checked out the next two in the series at the library and finished them pretty quickly.
A quick background about the book.  It's setting is current but in the Older Order Amish country.  It's the struggle of a girl with the legalism of the religion, a tragedy, yet also finding out true facets of God, oh and there's a bit of a love story.

I know it sounds like a full fledged "Christian novel" but really it's not.  It has just enough to keep you engaged but focusing more on the characters.
I love recommendations of books, so I don't have to get half way through to find I don't like it, so here I am putting out my 2¢.
