Lilly's Wedding Quilt
Title: LILLY’S WEDDING QUILT
Author: Kelly Long
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Jacob Wyse has loved Sarah King for years, but she is marrying another. On the way to Sarah’s wedding, Jacob steals another man’s horse, and is shot in the arm for his efforts. The police are hot on his trail. And the person who comes to his aid is none other than the Amish school teacher. A woman Jacob has never noticed.
Lilly Lapp has loved Jacob Wyse for as long as she can remember. To save him from arrest, Lilly claims to have been with Jacob the whole time, to the shock of the Amish community—and then to save Lilly from the repercussions of her statement, Jacob announced their engagement to wed—in two weeks time.
And now both of them must face the truth of their actions. Lilly is promised to a man who loves another. And Jacob to a woman he doesn’t love. Hoping is too risky, and Lilly needs to protect her heart. But is there a possibility that God is in it?
LILLY’S WEDDING QUILT is the most recent release by Kelly Long. I have to say I loved the sexual tension between Jacob and Lilly as the story opens and I literally had a difficult time putting this book down to work on my own things.
Lilly and Jacob were both very realistically developed characters as well as the secondary characters. I fell in love with Jacob’s brother, Seth, and will be expecting Ms. Long to write him as a hero in a subsequent book. If you like Amish fiction then you will definitely want to consider picking up LILLY’S WEDDING QUILT. You will not be disappointed. Discussion questions are included at the end of the book. $14.99. 315 pages.
