Ever wish you could visit with a group of Amish or Mennonite women over a cup of coffee? In the pages of Homespun, Amish and Plain Mennonite women swap stories and spin yarns while we listen in. Lorilee Craker, bestselling author of Money Secrets of the Amish, collects these personal writings about hospitality, home, grief, joy, and walks with God. Hear from one woman who struggles with feeling inferior to her sister, from another about her longing for a baby, and from a third who accidentally bought stretchy material to sew her husband’s pants. Each woman’s story is a testament to the grace of God and the blessings of community. Behind Amish romance novels and tourist spots and television shows stand real people, with longings and loves just like the rest of us. Every Amish and Mennonite woman has a story. In Homespun, you get to hear some of them.
Review: Homespun is a wonderful collection of stories by Amish and Mennonite women. I would have loved to been there and listened when such stories were told. I am intrigued by their lifestyle and would love to learn more. Reading this book Homespun has enabled me to have some of that experience. What a refreshing insight to the plain peoples lifestyle. I received a complementary copy of this book. This review is my honest opinion. 4 stars!
