ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
A word from the Author:
I have never eaten a scallop. I love cream soda. Drink way too much coffee. I do not like elevators but I do enjoy needle arts and of course books. I prefer jazz over country (no offense), milk chocolate over dark, but not roller coasters although my life has often resembled a roller coaster ride.
One of my life's desires is to meet Amy Grant so I can tell her she saved my life.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Yet when Maybelle discovers that the quilt is made from scraps of material that can be traced back through her family heritage, the project is suddenly much more important. Then word comes that Holden is missing in action, and with little else to do, Maybelle clings to the quilt as much as to the hope that her husband is still alive. As neighborhood friends gather around Maybelle to help her through the unknown days and nights ahead, it is the quilt that becomes a symbol of her unflagging belief that Holden will return—to her, to their home, and to their quilt-covered bed.

Another great book in the Quilts of Love Series. This time we're placed in WWII, with Maybelle and her friend Doris. Two women with husbands in the war. Two women who couldn't be more different, yet, are best of friends. They hold each other together, they help each other, and they give each other strength.
Sewing the quilt is a bit of therapy for the girls, it helps them hold on to hope and ties them to the past. The quilt also helps form new friendships.
This is a book that will take you into the past, these girls have spunk and you will find yourself laughing along with them as they weld on the ships, and you'll feel your heart break when bad news is shared.
