A Wedding Quilt for Ella
Ella Yoder’s wedding with Aden Wengerd and the building of their dream house is set for June. But when Aden is suddenly taken from her, Ella begins to doubt God’s love.
When her family pressures her to marry the new young bishop, Ella asks for six months to heal from Aden’s death. Meanwhile, Aden’s brother, Daniel, helps Ella build her dream house based on a drawing by Ella’s sister, Clara and now incorporated into Ella’s wedding quilt.
Can healing come through a house…a quilt….a community?
About this series: Readers of Amish fiction will delight in this first book in a new series about young Ella Yoder as she copes with the loss of her true love. Author Jerry Eicher’s sales now top more than 100,000.
“Eicher, who has lived among the Amish, captures the tranquil pace of their life and their abiding desire to conform to God’s will.”
“Eicher (Hannah's Heart series) is well known for his character-driven, homespun stories. This first entry in a new series featuring Ella Yoder will attract fans of Marta Perry and Suzanne Woods Fisher.”
“It tugs at the heart from the beginning...This book was inspiring.”
“Mr. Eicher does a great job of capturing the essence of Ella.”
“Overall, this book is a pleasant read. The characters are well developed...Parts of the book are very thought provoking, but not preachy. As this is book one of the Little Valley series, so there is much more of Ella to come, but this book can also stand alone without the others of the series.”
“I love how Jerry Eicher brings out the emotions in this book...he has done a fabulous job. I can’t wait until the second book comes out.”
“I could truly feel the pain she [Ella] felt through the author's writing. A great book, and I am looking forward to book two in this series.”
“From Jerry Eicher’s first stories to Ella’s debut, I am a helpless fan. I am captivated by my vicarious involvement in the cloistered world of Ella’s close-knit community. Jerry, through his dedication to simplicity, keeps me on the edge of emotions page after page. He builds raw tension that makes me put down the book and leave the room to gain strength to face the next few pages of an unfolding drama. Thank you, Jerry, for sharing warm and wonderful words.”
