I always love to find the reasons for the title of a book and Stitches In Time had several. Not the least of which is the name of Izzy’s yarn shop. And since this book is dealing with Foster Children, healing their hearts a stitch at a time.
There were lots of reverence’s to sheep and their shepherd. Izzy loved her sheep and they knew her voice. Which led to correlating the Good Shepherd (Jesus) with his sheep (us). I had read that lots of Amish do not know the Bible, the father reads it to the family but many don’t have personal Bibles to read and study. This was true of Izzy. She was surprised to learn from a foster child that the Bible is full of verses about shepherds and sheep.
Mollie was the one that I felt the most for. She was single, taught school, and was the first to “jump on the wagon” about fostering children and hung on for dear life. She had her hands full with mischievous eleven year old twin girls.
There are so many wonderful characters in the story....Hank who shouts when he talks, even in church, Luke who got the hymn book that made him an unlikely deacon, Izzy who desperately wants a baby, Sam who is shy and has a thing for Mollie and many others you’ll get to know in this novel. I highly recommend it!
This was a personal purchase and I reviewed it by choice.
