A Quilt for Jenna by Patrick E Craig - Review of the first book in the Apple Creek Dreams series

(taken from
Amish + Quilts = readers delight! And in this first book in Patrick Craig's Apple Creek Dreams series, readers will follow Jerusha Springer's journey out of tragic circumstances to a new life of hope.

Jerusha has spent months making the most beautiful quilt anyone in apple Creek, Ohio, has ever seen, and she knows it's going to take first prize at the Quilt Fair in Dalton. The prize will be her ticket out of the Amish way of life--away from the memories of her dead daughter and her tormented husband. But on the way to the Fair, she get caught in the storm fo the century and Jerusha's driver crashes their car. While the driver goes for help, Jerusha is led by someone, or something, to the side of a lost little girl. By the time the storm clears, Jerusha finds there is a greater prize to be won than the money and the blue ribbons.

A beautiful story of loss....and redemption.

I have been wanting to read one of Patrick's books for quite some time and finally got it accomplished. I think the book started out rather slow and confusing for me but I did get pulled in and enjoyed the last three fourths of the book. The part that kept me 'confused' did have to be told but I guess it was done in a way I don't enjoy reading. Like I said, I did enjoy the book and I am definitely going on to read "The Road Home" and "Jenny's Choice".
