There's more to the quaint northern Indiana town of Shipshewana than handcrafted quilts, Amish-made furniture, immaculate farms and close-knit families. When a dead girl is found floating in a local pond, murder is also afoot. And Reuben Fisher is in jail as the suspect! Reuben refuses to divulge any information, even to clear himself of a crime Deborah is certain he didn't commit. So, with her English friend, Callie--fellow sleuth and owner of Daisy's Quilt Shop--Deborah sets out to uncover the truth. But the mystery deepens when an elderly man seeks Callie's help in finding his long-lost daughter, missing since the days of the 1965 Palm Sunday Tornadoes. An old man who has lost his past. A young man who may lose his future. Once again Deborah and Callie find themselves trying to piece together a crazy quilt of lives and events--one that can bring unexpected touches of God's grace and resolve the tragedy that has shaken this quiet Amish community.

This book continues the comfortable group of characters begun in the first book in this series. It is an easy read and hard to put down. The ending leaves you with a contented feeling about life as we wish it would be.

I really enjoyed this book. The author provides the reader with an in-depth look at the Amish lifestyle. From the way they dress, think, and react to the 'English' world around them, Chapman's attention to detail in her writing showcases the strong sense of community and how their ways may sometimes conflict with the outside world. The characters are easy to become attached to, the setting is idyllic, and the plot, complete with flashback snippets, is engaging and puzzling to the end. Delightful story.

This is the second in the series of three books. Once all the books are done I can honestly say I am really going to miss the characters. Vannetta Chapman wrote them so real that you actually get a little attached to them. If you like Amish fiction you will like this series.
