Having read a number of Leslie Gould's books, I was excited to read Piecing It All Together, the first in the Plain Patterns series. I was not disappointed. She writes such a great story, making her characters real and likable with strong emotions and convictions as they deal with real life issues and mend and strengthen relationships. It is a charming story that deals with broken relationships, the search for a missing teen and has a thread of midwifery throughout, that I found to be quite interesting. Gould has crafted a dual time story in this book, as the owner of a local quilt shop tells the story about Emma from the 1840s, that is parallel to Savannah's story. As always with this author's stories, there are strong themes of family, friends, and faith woven throughout. Readers who enjoy stories about family and friends set in the Amish community will not want to miss Piecing It All Together.

Piecing It All Together, by Leslie Gould, is the first book in the Plain Pattern series. I just loved this story. I enjoyed reading of the strength Savannah needed to move forward with her life after her broken engagement. It is so appropriate for a young adult to turn to someone so special as a grandmother at a time like this. Savannah’s grandmother is so understand and not at all judgmental toward Savannah. She allows the use of cell phone and vehicle, which we often see as not allowed in most Amish stories.

I found the story of her ancestor to be very interesting. I enjoyed the similar theme running through both stories.

This is a great inspirational story of finding and giving forgiveness as well as moving on during difficult situations. There is a nice blend of mystery, suspense and romance written in this story. The writing is so clear, it is easy to envision the story while reading.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley, this is my honest review. ( )

Piecing It All Together, #1 Plain Patterns, by Leslie Gould, is one novel I want to label purely “Wunderbar.” I was fortunate to catch a sample chapter somewhere on my phone and I was hooked. I immediately requested an egalley from NetGalley. I must admit, I was a little uncertain. Some of Gould’s collaborations I have loved, while one particular series was not my style. But I am so glad I didn’t miss this one, and I will be first in line for book two, it is that enticing.
Gould’s riveting novel is a dual-timeline, with two young women, either Amish or with Amish ties, who are desperately seeking their place in life. Gould weaves so much tension into each story, switching between the two effortlessly. I couldn’t stand to put the book down and finished it in one day. So many emotions are pulled out of the reader’s heart, as you journey life with both present-day Savannah and 1842’s Emma and begin to see the greater picture come together.
So many takeaways for any reader. As we see overt and covert prejudice, we see what the cost is to fight for true equality. Some people don’t give troublesome teenagers a chance to grow and mature into upstanding adults. We see characters who, one step at a time, rise far above anything they’d ever imagined. And we see incredible courage in the face of insurmountable odds, only to be recognized after the fact. Faith and forgiveness lived out to the fullest. I can’t rave enough about this book and its unforgettable characters.

While this book wasn’t for me – it was too heavy for my taste – to the author’s credit, the plot kept me reading til the end. I just had to know what happened.

Piecing It All Together by Leslie Gould is the beginning of the Plain Patterns series. I thought Piecing It All Together was well-written with developed characters in a picturesque setting. Savannah Mast is at crossroads when her fiancé calls off the wedding a week before the big day. It inspires her to make a change and go back to the place she loved growing up which was her grandmother’s house. Her mammi, Dorothy Mast, welcomes her and introduces her to the quilting circle at Plain Patterns owned by Jane Berger. Besides running the quilting shop, Jane writes a column for the Nappanee News and is a local historian. Jane knows that God will send someone to her who will need one of her historical tales. When Savannah gets involved in the disappearance of local teen, Jane begins telling her a story that echoes what is happening. I soon found myself engrossed in this novel and did not want to put it down. I like how the two stories (Savannah and Emma) worked together. I enjoyed both women’s stories. Piecing It All Together is a story about friendship, family, faith, and love. It was interesting learning about midwifery. I loved the descriptions of the Home and Hearth quilt the ladies created for someone special. I like how all the loose ends were wrapped up with a satisfying ending. I look forward to reading A Patchwork Past when is comes out in the spring. Piecing It All Together is a charming story with an unfeeling fiancé, an AWOL adolescent, a determined deputy, a quilt quandary, an emergency midwife, and ancestral anecdotes. ( )
