“The Sisters of Sugarcreek” by Cathy Liggett, book review
This contemporary novel about three women who seemingly have little in common, but in the end share a love for God and a love for others in common.
When the community church burns, Jessica not only loses her church, but also her beloved Aunt Rose. After moving into Aunt Rose’s apartment upstairs from the yarn and quilt store, Jessica must put her life back together. As a young single mother, that is not an easy task.
Lydia does not attend the Community Church, as she is Amish, but when it burned it affected the whole community. For her personally, the fire caused a lot of problems, as her husband was killed. Now, she must make her own way without his help and care. But in some ways going it alone is easier.
Liz was Rose’s best friend. Rose’s death was tough for Liz, especially because it reminded her of her husband’s death a few years ago. Liz has moved on well with her life, alone, but now may bet interested in the handyman she has hired to fix her kitchen ceiling.
All three of these ladies are part of secret group who makes items and delivers in the middle of the night. It is incredible to see how the community reaponds.
This is an upbeat and enjoyable book. It does move a little slow during the day, but the characters are deleloped well.
