Ella Yoder’s wedding with Aden Wengerd and the building of their dream house is set for June.  But when Aden is suddenly taken from her, Ella begins to doubt God’s love.

When her family pressures her to marry the new young bishop, Ella asks for six months to heal from Aden’s death.  Meanwhile, Aden’s brother, Daniel, helps Ella build her dream house based on a drawing by Ella’s sister, Clara and now incorporated into Ella’s wedding quilt.

Can healing come through a house…a quilt….a community?

A Word from the Author

“Ella is a story of a young girl faced with unexpected difficulty which threatens to overwhelm her. There was the sweetness of her dreams with Aden, replaced now with a stark reality others from the community wish to draw for her. Through it all, Daniel and her younger sister Clara stand with her, helping Ella find the way. Underneath lies Ella’s unshakable faith that God must have some reason somewhere, which she is still unable to see. I hope you enjoy the story.”
Jerry S. Eicher, author of A Wedding Quilt for Ella

Editorial Reviews

“Eicher, who has lived among the Amish, captures the tranquil pace of their life and their abiding desire to conform to God’s will.”
Publishers Weekly

“Eicher (Hannah's Heart series) is well known for his character-driven, homespun stories. This first entry in a new series featuring Ella Yoder will attract fans of Marta Perry and Suzanne Woods Fisher.”
Library Journal

“It tugs at the heart from the beginning...This book was inspiring.”

“Mr. Eicher does a great job of capturing the essence of Ella.”

“Overall, this book is a pleasant read. The characters are well developed...Parts of the book are very thought provoking, but not preachy. As this is book one of the Little Valley series, so there is much more of Ella to come, but this book can also stand alone without the others of the series.”

“I love how Jerry Eicher brings out the emotions in this book...he has done a fabulous job. I can’t wait until the second book comes out.”

“I could truly feel the pain she [Ella] felt through the author's writing. A great book, and I am looking forward to book two in this series.”

“From Jerry Eicher’s first stories to Ella’s debut, I am a helpless fan. I am captivated by my vicarious involvement in the cloistered world of Ella’s close-knit community. Jerry, through his dedication to simplicity, keeps me on the edge of emotions page after page. He builds raw tension that makes me put down the book and leave the room to gain strength to face the next few pages of an unfolding drama. Thank you, Jerry, for sharing warm and wonderful words.”
