Item description for When The Morning Comes (Sisters Of The Quilt V2) by Cindy Woodsmall...
Overview When her relationship with Paul comes to an end, Hannah Lapp heads to Ohio in hopes of finding refuge with another Amish outcast, and a deepening friendship with Martin Palmer helps her cope as she struggles to understand the contemporary world.
Publishers Description Her relationship with fiance Paul Waddell in tatters, Hannah Lapp has fled her secluded Old Order Amish community in hopes of finding a new home in Ohio with her shunned aunt. Hampered by limited education and hiding her true identity, Hannah struggles to navigate the confusing world of the "Englischer"s. Back in Owl's Perch, Pennsylvania, Paul is wracked with regret over his treatment of Hannah. Fearing for her safety, he tries to convince Hannah's remaining allies-brother Luke, best friend Mary, and loyal Matthew Esh-to help search for his love. Hannah's father, however, remains steadfastly convinced of her sinful behavior. His blindness to his family's pain extends to her sister, Sarah, who shows signs of increasing instability. Convinced her former life is irreparably destroyed, Hannah finds purpose and solace in life with her aunt and in a growing friendship with "Englischer" Martin Palmer. Will the countless opportunities in her new life persuade Hannah that her place is amongst the "Englischers"-- or will she give in to her heart's call to return home and face her past?
"When the Morning Comes" is book two in the Sisters of the Quilt series.

More About Cindy Woodsmall
Cindy Woodsmall is a New York Times best-selling author whose connection with the Amish community has been featured on ABC Nightline and on the front page of the Wall Street Journal.
She is also a veteran homeschool mom who no longer holds that position. As her children progressed in age, her desire to write grew stronger. After working through reservations whether this desire was something she should pursue, she began her writing journey. Her husband was her staunchest supporter as she aimed for what seemed impossible.
Her first novel released in 2006 to much acclaim and became a best seller. Cindy was a 2007 ECPA award finalist, along with Karen Kingsbury, Angela Hunt, and Charles Martin.
Her second book, When the Morning Comes, hit numerous best-sellers lists across the US, including edging into the extended list of the New York Times, coming in at number thirty-four.
Her third book, When the Soul Mends, hit the New York Times best-sellers list, coming in at number thirteen, as well as making the USA Today’s best-sellers list.
Cindy continues to write and release best-selling works of fiction, and she’s also written a nonfiction work with an Old Order Amish friend, Miriam Flaud. The book is titled Plain Wisdom: An Invitation into an Amish Home and the Hearts of Two Women.
Her real-life connections with Amish Mennonite and Old Order Amish families enrich her novels with authenticity.
Though she didn’t realize it at the time, seeds were sown years ago that began preparing Cindy to write these books. At the age of ten, while living in the dairy country of Maryland, she became best friends with Luann, a Plain Mennonite girl. Luann, like all the females in her family, wore the prayer Kapp and caped dresses. Her parents didn’t allow television or radios, and many other modern conveniences were frowned upon. During the numerous times Luann came to Cindy’s house to spend the night, her rules came with her and the two were careful to obey them—afraid that if they didn’t, the adults would end their friendship. Although the rules were much easier to keep when they spent the night at Luann’s because her family didn’t own any of the forbidden items, both sets of parents were uncomfortable with the relationship and a small infraction of any kind would have been enough reason for the parents to end the relationship. While navigating around the adults’ disapproval and the obstacles in each other’s lifestyle, the two girls bonded in true friendship that lasted into their teen years, until Cindy’s family moved to another region of the US.
As an adult, Cindy became friends with a wonderful Old Order Amish family who opened their home to her. Although the two women, Miriam and Cindy, live seven hundred miles apart geographically, and a century apart by customs, when they come together they never lack for commonality, laughter, and dreams of what only God can accomplish through His children.
Cindy, her husband, their three sons and two daughters-in-law reside in Georgia.

The strength to Overcome May 24, 2010
After reading the first book "When the heart cries" -( which I put aside for a couple of weeks at first because it was so depressing although when I picked it up again I found it a very good read - I just wasn't in the mood for the first one at that time). I couldn't wait to begin this one "When morning comes" and it has been so interesting I hated for it to end. Hannah is not an unbeleivable person of great strenght and courage but a person who because of a real need and a positive determination managed to overcome so many obstables to her young life from a very terrible experience she was not able to avoid that she inspired me to work harder at overcoming obstacales in my life. This is a well written book and I recommend it to everyone. The characters are so well defined that they just come to life. I always get the set of books at once because I want the next one ready when I am and I have the third "When the soul mends" and will start it right away. Cindy Woodsmall knows how to carry a good story line from beginning to end , no tiresome pages are in this book - everything leads to a place where another part is alreaday in the making and the interest just heightens.
Great Read! May 18, 2010
I enjoyed the first book in this series very much, and so looked forward with anticipation to the next installment of the series. I wasn't disappointed! "When the Morning Comes" has several new plot twists and turns that keep the reader guessing. By the end of the book, you feel that you know the characters personally. I heartily recommend this book.
Excellent series to read. Feb 17, 2010
I really enjoyed this series. It tells of the strong Amish faith and the family values.
Excellent book Feb 3, 2010

Halfway Point of a Good Triligy Sep 14, 2009
I purchased the first book of this series "When the Heart Cries" craving something new to read and wasn't quite sure exactly what. Being that this book was in the Christian section of the book store and it's story line was based on the Amish society, I took a chance on it. After reading the first one I was hooked and purchased the following two, "When the Morning Comes" and "When the Soul Mends". The reason I give this series of books 4 stars is just because it seemed a bit draggy towards the ending section of this second one. I thought to myself, "get on with it" and I admit to flipping to the middle of the third book to see where the story was leading. After peaking, I was again interested in knowing the whole story. I am glad to have this series on my shelf and have already passed it along to a friend who is right now on the third book and is enthralled with it, anxious to know the ending.
