Nothing makes Joy Miller happier than sewing. And nothing makes Matthew Slagel, the bishop’s son, happier than spending time with Joy.
With the rising popularity of the Me, Myself, and Pie shop run by Joy’s eldest sister, Lovina, comes an increasing demand for souvenirs like aprons and dishtowels. Joy’s handiwork soon catches the attention of a television crew preparing to film a new Amish TV series. While she is initially hired to sew the costumes, she finds herself becoming a consultant and fill-in for the main actress.
The bishop does not approve of Joy’s involvement with the show—or his son’s involvement with Joy. When he asks Matthew to stop seeing Joy, Matthew must make a decision—pursue happiness or follow the rules—unless he can find a way to reconcile those two sides of his faith.
When mounting tension threatens to rip the entire community apart, can an unexpected development stitch them back together? Inspiration, romance, and creativity abound in Sewn with Joy, the third and final installment in The Pinecraft Pie Shop series.
In the 3rd and final book in the series, the authors have given Joy her story. I’ve liked the Miller family and was happy to see how they turned their dreams into reality. Their faith, love for each other and their community has been a common thread in each story.
Joy extends a helping hand to the crew that is in Pinecraft to film a TV show about the Amish. There are some in the community that would rather not have them there, but circumstances make the Miller family become much more involved than the Bishop approves of.
This is a sweet and wonderful story. The friendship that Joy has with the Alicia (the lead actress on the show) is one that is well written and makes a remarkable difference in so many ways.
I received a copy of this book from Netgalley for this review. I have given my honest opinion.
