The title is misleading. I was halfway through the book and still had not seen any references to a quilt, much less a Hawaiian quilt. And then there was one reference and nothing more until almost the end of the book.

The vocabulary is very simplistic. I wonder what the reading level is for the book: 4th grade?

Mandy and her three friends go on a trip of a lifetime when they cruise to Hawaii, with the ship stopping at various islands. Mandy loses her cell phone, which causes her and one friend to be stranded when the ship leaves without them. They are befriended by strangers who take them to a bed and breakfast. In the wait for communications with their parents at home and the funds for travel home, they are welcomed and cared for by the Christian owners of the bed and breakfast and end up deciding to stay to help out when the male owner breaks his leg. Meanwhile, Mandy is loving Hawaii, not much interested in talking with her boyfriend at home, and is sightseeing with Ken, a member of the local church. Much emphasis is placed on Mandy's probable decision to join the Amish church, which then it is assumed she will marry the forlorn boyfriend, Gideon. Eventually her one friend inserts herself in the budding relationship with Ken, causing a rift before they then finally go home. But Mandy, happy to see her family, is not terribly happy in the job she secures upon her return and also in her relationship with Gideon. And she really misses Hawaii. Much more happens before relationships are resolved.

This book is not that great. Forget romance. Forget quilts. And Mandy's attitudes toward the mores of her faith (dress, church attendance, classes prior to joining the church) seem a little off.
