About: Detachment had worked well as a life strategy for horse trainer Sam Schrock. Until he met Mollie Graber . . .
New to Stoney Ridge, schoolteacher Mollie has come to town for a fresh start. Aware of how fleeting and fragile life is, she wants to live it boldly and bravely. When Luke Schrock, new to his role as deacon, asks the church to take in foster girls from a group home, she’s the first to raise her hand. The power of love, she believes, can pick up the dropped stitches in a child’s heart and knit them back together.
Mollie envisions sleepovers and pillow fights. What the 11-year-old twins bring to her home is anything but. Visits from the sheriff at midnight. Phone calls from the school truancy officer. And then the most humiliating moment of all: the girls accuse Mollie of drug addiction.
There’s only one thing that breaks through the girls’ hard shell–an interest in horses. Reluctantly and skeptically, Sam Schrock gets drawn into Mollie’s chaotic life. What he didn’t expect was for love to knit together the dropped stitches in his own heart . . . just in time.
Suzanne Woods Fisher invites you back to the little Amish church of Stoney Ridge for a touching story of the power of love.
My Review of Stitches in Time by Suzanne Woods Fisher: I didn’t read the first book in the series since I wasn’t sure I would like the subjects in the book but I got this one since the blurb had me intrigued and I thought I would find an enjoyable Amish read in Fishers’ newest book, and I did! This is a somewhat funny, somewhat hard, sad heartbreaking, sweet, and lovable story that mature readers will enjoy, there is content that makes this a 16/18 up book though so I suggest that for younger than 16 parents/guardians/friends read the book first and no one younger than 13 read Stitches in Time.
Rating: 3 and 1/2 stars.
Recommendation: 16/18 up.
