Her relationship with fiancé Paul Waddell in tatters, Hannah Lapp has fled her secluded old order Amish community in hopes of finding a new home in Ohio with her shunned aunt. Hampered by limited education and hiding her true identity, Hannah struggles to navigate the confusing world of the Englischers.

Back in Owl’s Perch, Pennsylvania, Paul is wracked with regret over his treatment of Hannah. Fearing for her safety, he tries to convince Hannah’s remaining allies—brother Luke, best friend Mary, and loyal Matthew Esh—to help search for his love. Hannah’s father, however, remains steadfastly convinced of her sinful behavior. His blindness to his family’s pain extends to her sister, Sarah, who shows signs of increasing instability.

Convinced her former life is irreparably destroyed, Hannah finds purpose and solace in life with her aunt and in a growing friendship with Englischer Martin Palmer. Will the countless opportunities in her new life persuade Hannah that her place is amongst the Englischers—or will she give in to her heart’s call to return home and face her past?

When the Morning Comes is book two in the Sisters of the Quilt series.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Cindy Woodsmall writes real—real people, real conflicts, real emotions. When you open her book, you enter her world and live the story with the characters. When the Morning Comes is a journey of discovering faith, of overcoming trauma, of learning to depend on God’s sustaining strength. I eagerly await installment three of the Sisters of the Quilt Series!”

    Kim Vogel Sawyer, author of Where the Willows Grow and Waiting for Summer’s Return

  • “Through Amish and Mennonite characters in tension with their contemporary world, Cindy weaves the fabric of all faith communities hoping to be relevant to the world around them—and each other—while not losing the strengths of their forefathers and foremothers. When the Morning Comes is a fine rendering of struggle and joy that resonates long after the last words are read.”

    Jane Kirkpatrick, award-winning author of the Change and Cherish series

  • A 2008 RITA Award Finalist

    " Still didn't know that this was a trilogy. Was so mad that there was another cliffhanger I almost threw the book across the room. Still a good book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Darcie | 2/5/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 1/30/2014

    " I surely learned more than I've ever known about the Amish people. This is why I was interested in the book in the first place. It was hard to get into and remember all the characters, but that's just because I haven't read the first book! I was quite disappointed that I have to wait for the next book to come out to find out what is going to happen. Near the end of the book I really got into it and am glad I didn't take it back to the library as I had planned when I was having difficulties with the characters. A good read if one is interested in the Amish and their lives. "

    " I loved it. I really felt the author did a good job putting the reader into the Amish setting and lifestyle. You definitely have to read the whole series to be satisfied with the books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susannah | 1/10/2014

    " I enjoyed the continuation of the story. It ends with Hannah leaning toward a decision that I don't want her to make, so I finished it a little frustrated. So for that reason I didn't love it quite as much as the first one. But it's still worth reading. I can't wait to read the next one. "

    " Read this to finish out the trilogy and feel better about Hannah's ending but this series is too depressing for me. Watching how Hannah was punished by everyone in her life for her rape was very hard. "
