Many lives were changed the day a fire burned down Faith Community Church, devastating the small town of Sugarcreek, Ohio.Now a young Amish widow, Lydia Gruber faces an uncertain future. Her husband, a craftsman and volunteer firefighter, always took care of everything, keeping her isolated from others in their community. Without anyone or any skills, how will she survive?With the death of her beloved aunt Rose in the fire, single mom Jessica Holtz inherits Rose's Knit One Quilt Too cottage.
The Sisters of SugarCreek by Cathy Ligget is a sweet story about an Amish widow and a young niece as they gather up their lives after losing loved ones in a church fire. Liggett interweaves the Amish with the English so that it's neither a traditional Amish story nor a traditional Christian story. Unlike either of those books, which tend to be a bit too preachy or a little too forced, this one flows nicely and though can be a bit cliched at times it was interesting to the very end.
I read it in a weekend and thought it was just the type of book I needed on a dreary cold day!
This book was given to me by Tyndale Publishing in exchange for my honest review.
