ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Her Amish Wedding Quilt
Series: Hope’s Haven #1
Author: Winnie Griggs
Release Date: December 15, 2020
Genre: Amish Romance
An Amish seamstress and a single father have a chance to make a fresh start in this heartwarming novel about finding love when you need it the most.
Spirited, forthright, impulsive — everyone told Greta Eicher she’d have to change her ways if she ever hoped to marry. Then her best friend Calvin, the man she thought she would wed, chooses another woman. Now Greta’s wondering if the others were right all along. Her dreams dashed, she pours her energy into crafting beautiful quilts at her shop and helping widower Noah Stoll care for his adorable young children.
Noah knows it’s time to think about finding a wife. When Greta offers to play matchmaker on his behalf, Noah eagerly accepts. After all, no one knows his children better. But none of the women she suggests seems quite right, because, unexpectedly, his feelings of respect and friendship for Greta have grown into something even deeper and richer. But will he have enough faith to overcome the pain of his past and give love another chance?
How do you realistically depict the Amish and their customs?
Well I hope I depict them realistically. I’ve tried to immerse myself in the culture. I’ve purchased
a number of reference books, connected with folks, both writers and ‘civilians’, who are either
Amish themselves or who have close ties to the Amish, I’ve subscribed to several Amish-
focused blogs, and I’ve utilized trusted readers/writers of Amish fiction to read parts of my
books. I really, REALLY wanted to make a couple of trips to Amish country to physically
immerse myself in the culture, but unfortunately, 2020 being what it is/was, I wasn’t able to
follow through on that.
I’m sure I’ve made mistakes, but I plan to learn from them and improve as I move forward.
Her Amish Wedding Quilt was such a cute and sweet book! I loved the characters and I will definitely read more of Winnie Griggs’s books. Her Amish Wedding Quilt it about Greta Eicher and Noah Stoll. Greta is spirited, impulsive and forthright, qualities no man wants in a wife. As she tries to be content with being a spinster, she offers to play matchmaker for Noah Stoll, a widower trying to care for his two children and balance his work. However, as Greta suggests women none of them seem to fit for Noah because unexpectedly his feelings of respect and friendship for Greta have grown into something even deeper and richer. But will he be able to overcome the pain of his path and perhaps form a relationship with Greta?
This was a really cute book! I thought that the premise was really intriguing and I loved the characters. Greta was a lot like me, impulsive and forthright, I really related to her. However, I also felt bad for her as she tried to navigate life knowing that she was different from other women and that no man would want her as a wife. She was strong, but she was kind and she really cared for Noah and his kids.
Noah was the strong silent kind of guy. He didn’t always express his feelings, but he was kind and thoughtful. I thought that he was a sweetheart and I really liked him. He cared for Greta from the beginning, but it took a little while for him to realize his feelings for her. He loved his children and he wanted the best for them. There were points where I wanted to shake him because he was trying to suppress his feelings for Greta. But everything worked out in the end.
Her Amish Wedding Quilt was a cute book. It was such a fun story, Greta started out as helping Noah find a wife but they end up falling in love instead. I adored the characters! I would definitely recommend Her Amish Wedding Quilt! I can’t wait to see what comes next in the series.
