Complex story in Pinecraft -- Sewn with Joy

Sewn with Joy is perhaps the most complex of the stories in The Pinecraft Pie Shop series by Tricia Goyer and Sherry Gore.

The third of the Miller daughters, Joy, seems to have found the answer to one of her greatest dreams -- an outstanding young bishop's son who appears pleased to consider her for marriage.  But life in the little Amish community of Pinecraft changes quickly when Englishers arrive to film a television show.  Suddenly, Joy is very much involved in their business, and that fact seems to tear apart her dream to be a traditional wife and mother.

This story involves a wide range of issues on the parts of both the Amish residents and English visitors in Pinecraft.  The deep meaning of God's love and the mission of His people to share that love cause the lives of several to be turned topsy-turvy before finding the paths they are intended to follow.

Although not as many as in the first book of the series, you will once again get the bonus of several delightful recipes throughout the story.

For all fans of great Amish fiction, I highly recommend all three volumes in this Pinecraft Pie Shop series.

See my reviews for Made with Love and Planted with Hope.

About the Book:

Sometimes Dreams Come Together One Piece at a Time 

Joy Miller wanted nothing more than to be a wife and mother—especially now that her relationship with Matthew Slagel, the bishop’s son, was deepening. But when a television crew rolls into Pinecraft, Florida, to film a new show about the Amish, tension threatens to rip apart their relationship…and the entire Amish community.  

Joy is initially hired to sew costumes for the show, but she soon finds herself becoming increasingly involved in the production—a fact that upsets Matthew and his father. Yet the more Joy befriends the Englischer production crew, the more she senses God working in their lives through her. Can she turn her back on this opportunity to share God’s love? Will she and Matthew somehow be able to stitch together their dreams for the future?

Experience love, heartbreak, and hope in this sweet story of two worlds uniting in unexpected ways.
