Book Review- Sister's of the Quilt

Sister's of the Quilt 
Written by: Cindy Woodsmall

From the back of the book:
Can Hannah find refuge, redemption, and a fresh beginning after her world is shattered?

When the Heart Cries
Her life among her Amish community brutally interrupted, seventeen-year-old Hannah Lapp faces questions neither family, nor fiancé, nor even faith can easily answer. The first book in the Sisters of the Quilt series, When the Heart Cries will ignite a broader understanding of others’ beliefs and a God-given strength to deal with pain we all experience.

When the Morning Comes
Rejected by those she loves, Hannah Lapp leaves her Amish community and seeks refuge in the world outside, leaving her family and friends to wrestle with the painful truths that emerge in the wake of her disappearance. As she struggles to find her place in the confusing Englischer world, her community deals with the turbulent aftermath of her departure.

When the Soul Mends
Hoping to help her sister, Hannah Lapp reluctantly returns to the Old Order Amish community she fled in disgrace more than two years earlier. When hidden truths are revealed about her former fiancé, she must choose whether to return to the Plain life or to the Englischer man who adores her in this captivating conclusion to the Sisters of the Quilt series.

This three-in-one collection includes the entirety of the best-selling Sisters of the Quilt trilogy now at a new low price! 
My Thoughts:
This book was a good read.  Admittedly it was not my favorite.  The book hits some tough issues, while very well written and very realistic the emotions are still very sad.  This is in no way a happy go lucky read but it is real life and the three books in this trilogy showcase some great characters that really grow through the story.  I enjoyed watching Hannah's independence and self worth grow.  These three stories would not make good read alone books, in my opinion, they are to intertwined and  I feel they would have been confusing if not read together, also the end of the first and second story both kind of leave you hanging their is no good resolution to the stories till the third book.  Also I must say that I did not fall as in love with the characters in this book as I have some of Cindy WoodSmall's other book- such as The Christmas Singing   and The Harvest of Grace.   While they are great characters and I enjoyed seeing them grow and change through out the three stories I did not feel that close bond, that you feel with characters when you step into their world in a novel.  
Overall I give this Book 3 out of 5 Stars
