Review and Book Giveaway of Barbara Cameron's "Her Restless Heart"

Mary Katherine is caught between the traditions of her faith and the pull of a different life. When Daniel, an Amish man living in Florida, arrives and shares her restlessness, Mary Katherine feels drawn to him and curious about the life he leads away from Lancaster County. 

I read Barbara's first series Quilts of Lancaster County  and I loved all three books. So when the new Stitches in Time Series came out I ran to the book store to pick up a copy of book number one "Her Restless Heart" and boy am I glad I did! Barbara's writing is right up there with the BEST Amish authors such as Beverly and Wanda.

Mary Katherine  (who was my favorite character)  had an English friend who she was close to and it was neat to see the relationship between them. I love how Barbara had her characters from the last series make  cameo appearances in this series.

I can't wait to read book number two "The Heart's Journey".

I will give away one copy of this book, because I bought an extra copy for one lucky reader!

But her longtime friend Jacob has been in love with her for years. He’s discouraged that she’s never viewed him as anything but a friend and despairs that he is about to lose Mary Katherine to this outsider. 

Will the conflicted Mary Katherine be lost to the Englisch world, or to Daniel, who might take her away to Florida? Or will she embrace her Amish faith and recognize Jacob as the man she should marry and build a life with?
