‘A Quilt for Jenna’ opens Patrick Craig’s ‘Apple Creek Dreams’ 1950’s Amish romance series with a touching story of loss, endurance and redemption. Tracing the fortunes of Jerusha Springer’s journey out of tragic circumstances, her hope seems to lie in the months spent making the most beautiful ‘Rose of Sharon’ quilt anyone in Apple Creek, Ohio, has ever seen. This, she is certain will take first prize at the Quilt Fair in Dalton, Wisconsin.
The prize, she hopes will be her ticket out of the Amish way of life and freedom from the haunting memories of her dead daughter and her tormented husband. But on the way to Dalton Fair, Jerusha is caught in the most violent storm in living memory resulting in a road accident that leaves her stranded.
Unable to get to safety, Jerusha reflects on everything she has gone through and the many reasons why she thinks God can't be trusted. Reliving the background as to how her daughter died and why her husband left, Jerusha’s tale becomes interwoven with the story of a little girl, also caught in the storm, and desperately needing help as her health rapidly begins to fail. But will Jerusha learn to trusto God before it's too late? Here begins is a most enthralling epic tale with an awesome message.
A Quilt For Jenna by Patrick E. Craig was published by Harvest House in February 2013 and is our 53689th best seller. The ISBN for A Quilt For Jenna is 9780736951050.
“A touching tale of three people who have lost their way. In a Quilt for Jenna, Patrick Graif deftly contrasts the peaceful Amish the lifestyle with the harsh Word War 2 Gaudalcanal battlefield, tied with a lovely message of sacrifice, humility and forgiveness. I was entranced.” - Sarah Sundim, award winning author of "With Every Letter".
"A good storyteller takes a fine story and places it in a setting peppered with enough accurate details to satisfy a native son. Then he peoples it with characters so real we keep thinking we see them walking down the street. A great storyteller takes all that and binds it together with, say, a carefully constructed Rose of Sharon quilt and the wallop of a storm of the century that actually happened. A Quilt For Jenna proves Patrick Craig to be a great storyteller." - Kay Marshall Strom, author of the "Grace in Africa" and "Blessings in India" trilogies.
"Patrick Craig writes with an enthusiasm and a passion that is a joy to read. He deals with romance, faith, love, loss, tragedy, and restoration with equal amounts of elegance, grace, clarity, and power. Everyone should pick up his debut novel in Amish fiction, turn off the phone and computer and TV, and settle in for a good night’s read. Craig’s book is a blessing." - Murray Pura, author of “The Wings of Morning” and “The Face of Heaven”.
Jerusha is the best quilter in Apple Creek, Ohio, in fact she might be the best quilter in the entire state. And now has made her most beautiful quilt yet. Surely she will win first place in the Quilt Fair at Dalton. Then the prize money wick be Jerusha’s ticket out of the Amish way of life – away from the memories of Jenna, the daughter when lost a year ago and of Reuben her tormented husband who was been missing since Jenna’s death.
On the way to the fair, Jerusha gets caught in the Storm of the century and an accident leaves her trapped in her drivers’ car - and trapped by the memories of her marriage to Rueben and the birth and loss of little Jenna.
