The Sisters of Sugarcreek by Cathy Liggett
Little description: Many lives were changed the day a fire burned down Faith Community Church, devastating the small town of Sugarcreek, Ohio.
Now a young Amish widow, Lydia Gruber faces an uncertain future. Her husband, a craftsman and volunteer firefighter, always took care of everything, keeping her isolated from others in their community. Without anyone or any skills, how will she survive?
With the death of her beloved aunt Rose in the fire, single mom Jessica Holtz inherits Rose’s Knit One Quilt Too cottage. Though determined to keep the shop open in her aunt’s memory, she doesn’t know the first thing about knitting and quilting and begins to see her aunt’s dream slip through her fingers.
When Liz Cannon lost her dear friend Rose, she also lost her partner in the Secret Stitches Society―the name they gave themselves while delivering gifts of hope to troubled folks in the dark of night. Liz convinces Jessica to keep the anonymous society going, despite the younger women’s inadequacy with knitting and sewing needles. But soon Liz has problems of her own as the life she has rebuilt for herself begins to crumble again.
When Liz and Jessica choose Lydia for their first mission, the three women cross paths and form an unlikely friendship in the aftermath of tragedy. As they walk together through triumph and heartbreak―through grief and new chances at love―they begin to discover that with friends by your side, a stitch of hope can be found anywhere.

My thoughts: 5 stars out of 5
The Secret Stitches Society on the move again. Even though they lost one of the valuable ladies from their society to the fire, the group of women tries to bring more comfort for those who lost loved ones. Trying to deliver their packages of love and care to the chosen, Lis Cannon and Jessica Holtz venture out at night… What can go wrong with their delivery at night, without any invitation from the home owners? They practically are trespassers, hiding in the shadow, they quickly deliver to the destination and run away. But will it be always that smooth and unnoticed?
Funny ladies, and easy-to-read book…
