About the Book

A widow with two small children, Amelia Beiler is struggling to make ends meet. She is running her late husband’s business, but it’s not what she was raised to do, which is run a home. When she gets an offer for the business from Eli Fischer, she’s only too relieved to consider it–especially when it looks like Eli’s interest might include more than just the shop.

But when she begins to experience strange physical symptoms and is diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, it’s difficult not to question God’s will. If she pursues the treatment she believes in, she risks going under the bann. But how can she allow Eli to court her when she can’t promise him a future?

“This relatable story, which launches Senft’s Amish Quilt series, shows that while waiting to see God’s plan can be difficult, remembering to put Jesus first, others next and yourself last (“JOY”) is necessary.” RT Book Reviews

“With this quaint, gentle read, Senft’s promising series is off to a good start and will make a nice alternative for Jerry S. Eicher readers who want to try a new author.”  Library Journal

“Beautifully written … I loved the closeness of Amelia, Carrie, and Emma. I felt like I was with them on the days they got together to work on their quilt.” 

Book Baglady

“Senft perfectly captures the Amish setting of the novel, causing me both to long for the simplicity and beauty of the Amish way, but also to ponder with puzzlement some of the decisions made by the Ordnung. Amelia is an endearing character, and there were a few laugh-out-loud moments for me that I wasn’t even expecting. Although this is the first book I have read by the author, she has been added to my “must read” list. If you are a fan of Amish fiction, then plan on reading The Wounded Heart soon!” Christian Fiction Addiction
