Title: The Wounded Heart: An Amish Quilt Novel
Author: Adina Senft
Amelia Beiler is a widow raising two small children while running her late husband’s business. When she gets an offer for the business, she’s only too relieved to consider it, especially when it looks like Eli’s interest might include more than the shop. Then Amelia is diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, and many tough decisions need to be made.
When a business offer turns into something more personal, Amelia is torn between what logic tells her is right, and the desire of her heart. A widow with two small children, Amelia Beiler is struggling to make ends meet. She is running her late husband’s business, but it’s not what she was raised to do, which is run a home. When she gets an offer for the business from Eli Fischer, she’s only too relieved to consider it-especially when it looks like Eli’s interest might include more than just the shop. But when she begins to experience strange physical symptoms and is diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, it’s difficult not to question God’s will. If she pursues the treatment she believes in, she risks going under the bann. But how can she allow Eli to court her when she can’t promise him a future?
