Born To Read
I received a free copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
A glimpse into the life of an Amish life. It's true that it was not exactly what I was expecting. I didn't love it.
But it is a sweet story. And very easy to read.
Christine Steendam
If you're looking to read a nice clean romance then Rebekah's Quilt is a great place to start.

Sara Barnard weaves a beautiful tale of love and finding one's self in 1888 America. But not just America; we are immersed into the life of an Amish community and a twenty year old girl just back from her Rumspringa.

A series of events occur, both good and bad, that bring about some hard questions for Rebekah that she has to answer for herself, potentially cutting her off from everyone she considers fami

I realised recently, I should have added this statement to my review - this book was given to me by the author for an honest review.

Rebekah's Quilt by Sara Barnard is a well written historical Amish romance novella. I was captivated by this very sweet story and read the book in one sitting. The words flowed beautifully across the pages and it was impossible not to get emotionally involved in the story. The characters felt real and the events believable.

Joseph and Rebekah were the perfect coupl

Rebekah's Quilt is targeted at young adult readers, but anyone of any age will enjoy this sweet tale of Rebekah, the protagonist, and the world she inhabits.

I appreciated the historical and cultural details about Amish country in the late nineteenth century. They're integrated into the narrative -- sort of like the patches of a quilt! -- without sounding teachy or forced. Nicely done. I tell you what -- I have a hankering for a cinnamon cake right around now! I also think younger readers, especi

Sara Barnard's Amish novella was a great way to fill an afternoon! She takes us back to the wilds of Indiana territory, leads us through 19th century adventures, and shows us Rebekah's heart when she is faced with the most difficult decision of her young life. When up-with-the-sun chores and a sweet, blossoming romance give way to a mysterious English stranger and the epic blizzard of 1888, the reader not only goes along for the ride, (Barnard's adventures NEVER disappoint!) but also feels the h ...more

“Rebekah’s Quilt” is a tender love story between two Amish young people that also gives readers a peek into the everyday lives of the Amish during the pioneer era.

Sara Barnard is a master storyteller with a talent for using carefully crafted words and themes to develop the story and immerse the reader. As is read Rebekah's Quilt, the written words fell away and I was transported to the small Amish village of Gasthof. The smell of cinnamon cake and apple butter, the exhilarated flush of innocents and love, and the reminder that we are all God's children were carefully stitched together to form Rebekah's heartwarming story.

Rebekah's Quilt is a beautiful wri

I bought Rebekah's Quilt from Amazon because it was from an author (Sara Barnard), whose works I hadn't read before. The only books I would give five stars to are books that I can read over and over again, that being said, I would have to rate this book five stars. The book had great characters, an engrossing story-line and it flowed well. I look forward to reading more of Ms. Barnard's novels. ...more
Once again a feel good book with just enough drama & anticipation that I can't put it down! ...more

Rebekah's Quilt is a decent addition to the Amish romance genre. The protagonist, Rebekah, is a likable character from the very beginning. The rest of the characters are also well-written. Speaking of well-written, the author Sara Harris has a natural talent for writing heartfelt stories. I have read many (and I mean many) Amish tales over the years, and there have been many duds. I'm glad to say she ignores all the typical cliches and gives a new spark to an oversaturated genre. ...more

In Rebekah’s Quilt, Harris beautifully recreates the strengths and challenges of Amish life in mid-nineteenth century Indiana. This engaging read provides the correct historic setting for this sweet novel of discovery and choices. I appreciated the author’s gifted story premise, strong character development, and convincing historical accuracy.

Rebekah's Quilt is a sweet story. I smiled, I teared up, and I really enjoyed this story. It's so easy to get attached to Rebekah, she has such a kind heart. Although there is some intrigue (the English visitor), the day-to-day of the story itself will keep you captivated. If you like clean historical romances, you're going to love this book. ...more

This book is truly a inspirational story. The characters in this book are all very special people who are always there to help serve each other. You will feel God working throughout this wonderful book. I had the honor to review this book for the author for a honest review. I would give this book a higher rating than a five star review if I could.

This was my first time reading anything written by Sara Barnard; I have to say her writing is one that is easy to read--meaning readers can follow the story without any issues-- and I look forward to reading another Amish fiction book if she writes one.

Take a travel back to the mid-nineteenth century as the Amish families are traveling from Canada to Daviess County in the Indiana Territory to set-up a new community.

Rebekah Stoll thinks she knows who she is and what and maybe whom she wants for h
This book was a recommendation to me, so with reservation, I spent the $3 to pick up a Kindle copy of it. Sadly, I don't feel that it was money well spent. The book was short, and a fully fleshed out story, but I really didn't form a connection to the characters. I also found some of the situations implausible, which was a distraction at best. While it was interesting to read about the Amish history, that wasn't enough for me to want to re-read it, therefore, it was deleted from my Kindle librar ...more

I was missing accuracy in this book. Who has ever heard of an Amish man slipping a gold band on another Amish woman's hand. For me I had no connection to this book. One thing I can say in it's favor it was clean; no bad language or inappropriate behavior. ...more

What a sad story of early frontier times, but the quilt holds the family together. This is book 2.
