Return to Huckleberry Hill by Jennifer Beckstrand with a giveaway 

This was fantastic. I love the continuing characters. This is book seven of The Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill and I love Anna and Felty. They are great matchmakers. Reuben comes to stay with Anna and Felty when he believes that everyone in his hometown is laughing at him. Fern comes to Huckleberry Hill to try to cheer Reuben up and get him to come home. While at Huckleberry Hill Fern and Reuben learn many lessons. I did not want to put this book down. I received an ebook copy of this book from Celebratelit for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

Book: Return to Huckleberry Hill
Author: Jennifer Beckstrand
Genre: Inspirational Amish Romance
Release Date: May 30, 2017
When it comes to matchmaking, Huckleberry Hill, Wisconsin’s unstoppable octogenarians Anna and Felty Helmuth never seem to run out of opportunities—or grandchildren…
Reuben Helmuth is plenty bitter. John King, his best friend—or so he thought—is engaged to the girl Reuben loved. Humiliated, Reuben flees from Ohio to his grandparents’ home on Huckleberry Hill, where he knows he’ll find comfort. He’s enjoying wallowing in his misery—until John’s sister, Fern, shows up. She won’t stop pestering Reuben about forgiveness—or trying to help him find love again. Yet Fern’s efforts only reawaken Reuben’s long-buried feelings—for her…
With her brother too ashamed to face Reuben, it’s fallen to Fern to help mend fences. But as she and the Helmuths do all they can—even organizing a knitting club event filled with eligible girls—it may take one more challenge to inspire Reuben to forget his heartache, recognize his own blunders, and embrace the true love that’s right in front of him…

Anna Helmuth is starting a knitting club, but that’s not all she’s got up her sleeve.

My family. I have five sisters and no brothers. I think my mom made every dress in this photo, including her own.

In Return to Huckleberry Hill, Anna Helmuth and Fern King decide to start a knitting club in order to introduce Anna’s grandson Reuben to some girls from Bonduel, Wisconsin. Anna is a very good knitter, with years of practice making baby blankets, scarves, mittens, and potholders. One of Anna’s scarves actually saved someone’s life, and her potholders have helped her make many a match.
When I was a young teenager, I learned how to knit and crochet. My mom taught me how to sew and quilt, and I made several of my own dresses in high school. I never learned to love sewing, but it was an invaluable skill that I am so grateful to have. Now that I’m a little older, I love putting together simple quilts for baby gifts and making quilts for the local children’s hospital. There is nothing like a homemade gift to say, “I care about you.”
I have a friend who is a wonderful cook. Making a delicious, beautiful meal is how she tells her family she loves them. I don’t consider myself a great cook, but I still take pride in putting something nutritious and satisfying on the table for my family.
It seems to me that some of the “home arts” that our mothers and grandmothers practiced are dying out. Who knows how to tat anymore? Or embroider? Some of these arts have died because of expediency. Who doesn’t think today’s stocking choices are more comfortable and practical than knitted wool ones? Others have died out because so few people want to learn.
What about you? Do you still practice any of the home arts that your grandmother did? What do you want to pass on to the next generation?

  1. Thank you so much for having me on your blog today. I think the greatest compliment anyone can give me is that they couldn’t put my book down. Thank you so much. I hope readers enjoy “Return to Huckleberry Hill.” Anna and Felty are always so much fun to write, and I love making two people fall in love!

  2. I have an 88 year old friend that tats. She is actually 88 years young! I do embroidery (the old fashioned kind, not counted cross stitch) and have been for probably 65 years. I also crochet, as did my mother. Alas, my daughters don’t do any of my crafts but they make take it up later in life when they aren’t so busy. (I hope.)

  3. I lovd reading the blogs iearn alot about people from the. As far as your books go it is extremely hard to put tem down. I love the Anna character her and i could be bffs.

  4. Well… I use to embroider but that was when my eyes were younger. I learned to crochet in high school and have done many projects large and small. I have a quilt in process but knitting didn’t work out so good! Cooking is a joy and baking is fun when I have more time. I think I’m an old fashioned homemaker and I’m good with that.
