Lilly's Wedding Quilt by Kelly Long

When I received Lilly's Wedding Quilt by Kelly Long, I stalled reading it. "Another Amish Christian romance?"  :::sigh::: But when I started reading it I realized just how different this book was.

The characters are real. Yes - there is the Amish theme, but they are presented in very human ways.  Some interesting topics are handled in this book ... the awkwardness of being alone with someone of the opposite sex, jealousy, sibling issues, parent/child issues ... but the most interesting was the way the writer handled the topic of grief and depression.

The story flows very well and there are moments I laughed outloud and moments tears welled up in my eyes.  The relationship between Lilly and Jacob is wonderful to watch unfold as they discover who they are as they learn how to be a married couple.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good romance - even if you are tired of the same old stories. Lilly's Wedding Quilt has a fresh view!

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
