ABOUT THE BOOK
But is the man that returns from the war, the same man that she remembered? Are the dark shades of color that she had to use for the outside edges of the beloved quilt prophetic of her life to come? Can love and faith overcome all?

Bonnie Calhoun......LOVE IT!
Bonnie has a way of making her characters larger than life...in a good way! Cordelia is quite the girl, she's strong, she's passionate and you just can't help fall in love with her. I had a love/hate relationship with her boyfriend Bernard, but then again, so did Cordelia, so I suppose that was to be expected!
It's not too often that we read about African-American's and their role in WW2, so it was eye-opening to read about how Bernard and his buddies were treated, although it saddened me, I'm glad that I know now what they went through.
This book is one that will bring sadness as well as joy, and it shows how we CAN survive through rough times, too many times people just give up when it gets rough, not Cordelia, and that made her spectacular in my eyes.
A great read.
