Raven Meadows was raised on the Allegheny Indian Reservation in New York but placed in foster care after the death of her grandparents. Moving from one foster home to another, she's had two constants in life: knitting and her ragdoll. Now at 24, she works as a social worker in a foster home for boys. To her surprise, Amish families from Cherry Creek, NY apply to be foster parents. She quickly bonds with one Amish woman, Susanna Yoder, a knitter waiting for a kidney transplant. Susanna shows Raven her prayer shawl, and seeing what comfort it brings, Raven eagerly knits prayer shawls and eventually helps start a knitting circle. Over time, Raven discovers her ragdoll is really an Amish doll that unravels the mystery of her birth. Will this revelation lead her to a new found faith, forgiveness, and love?

Great Amish Fiction Read! I wasn’t even at the end of the first chapter of this book before my eyes welled up with tears. I found this book to be filled with twists, turns, and surprises. This book is so different from your normal Amish read and I liked it. I found the orphaned boys to be simply adorable, fun loving, pranking, boys. They will quickly capture your heart. Raven has most assuredly been through a lifetime of hurts. Will she learn to love and trust again? Will she allow God back into her life? More importantly can she forgive? It is amazing how loving, caring, people can change your life. I loved how open and caring Jim and Marilyn were. The love they have for children and adults alike is truly a gift from God. The Yoder family will tug on your heartstrings too. Such love and dedication they have for one another and others too. This book was enjoyable to read, tears and all. If a book doesn’t make me cry, happy or sad tears, it isn’t a good book in my opinion. I had lots of tears reading this one! This is the first book I have read by author Karen Anna Vogel. I’m excited to say it won’t be the last. I highly recommend this great read! It gets 5 stars from me!
