About the book:
Join Mandy Frey as she and three friends leave their Amish community in Indiana for the trip of a lifetime to Hawaii.
But when Mandy and one of her friends miss the cruise ship after a port of call on Kauai, how will they adjust and get back home? Find out in this brand new romance from New York Times bestselling author Wanda E. Brunstetter, writing with her daughter-in-law Jean Brunstetter.
What initially piqued my curiosity and made me want to read this book is the fact that this wasn’t the usual winter excursion to Pinecraft, Florida! Not that I don’t love that particular setting because I do.
I liked the characters and of course I liked the excitement the girls felt as they set out on a once in a life time opportunity to experience their Hawaiian cruise.
I enjoyed the descriptive scenes of the girls touring beautiful and unique sites when they disembarked their ship.
All goes well until Mandy and Ellen don’t return to the ship in time and get separated from their friends.
What happens to the two young and inexperienced girls fills the rest of the story. Their families and friends in Indiana want them to come home. People and circumstances change and sometimes a change is needed.
The Hawaiian Quilt is suitable for all ages of both Amish and Christian fiction.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher through Netgalley and have given my honest opinion.
