Review: Her Amish Patchwork Family


In this heartwarming Amish romance, a former schoolteacher and a single father discover a second chance at friendship, family, and love—perfect for fans of Laura V. Hilton and Marta Perry.

Former Hope’s Haven schoolteacher, Martha Eicher, has always been the responsible one, putting her family first and caring for her widowed father and two younger sisters. But now they’re all happily married, and Martha isn’t sure where she fits in anymore . . . until she hears that Asher Lantz needs a nanny. Even though her childhood friendship with Asher ended abruptly years ago, when a misunderstanding drove a wedge between them, Martha offers her assistance.

Asher is also feeling adrift. As a single father to his niece and nephews, he struggles to balance his new family responsibilities with those on the farm and in his workshop. He’s grateful for Martha’s help but worries things will always feel awkward with her. Yet before long, Asher realizes Martha is exactly what his family needs, and he can’t imagine his home without her. Martha and Asher thought they were lost, but could they be right where they belong . . . together?

Rating: 5-stars


Her Amish Patchwork Family by Winnie Griggs is a heartwarming read. It is full of love, faith, forgiveness, and understanding. Yes, it does give an outsider a view into the Amish way of life. I enjoy following the characters as they assume and stumble along the way. The flaws made them so believable. They feel real. Winnie Griggs makes it impossible to not love them all. Themes of family, second chances, and faith are strong throughout this wonderful read. It is clean, fast-paced, and engaging. The story is also an emotional tug of war kind of ride too. The book’s title fits in perfectly with this story. I highly recommend this to fans of Amish, Christian fiction, and romance genres. I love it and cannot wait to read more by this talented writer.
