Threads of Hope by Christa Allan

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Threads of Hope
Abingdon Press (March 1, 2013)
by
Christa Allan


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

A true Southern woman who knows that any cook worth her gumbo always starts with a roux and who never wears white after Labor Day, Christa is a writer of not your usual Christian Fiction. She weaves stories of unscripted grace and redemption with threads of hope, humor, and heart. Christa is the mother of five adult children, a grandmother of three, and a brand new retired teacher. She and her husband Ken live in New Orleans with their three cats and do their best to dodge hurricanes.

And, since she is not fond of writing about herself in third person, she asked her oldest daughter to contribute. Like her mother, Erin is not at a loss for words…

My Thoughts on This Book:
What a fantastic read. I've come to love each and every book in the Quilts of Love series and this one is no exception. You will find romance and a wonderful story knit around a memorial quilt. I learned a lot about the foundation that helps with the AIDS quilt. Not only are you getting a great fiction read, you are also learning something new. I love how the characters all seemed to mesh together nicely. I did find the story go a little slow at the beginning acting more like a 300+ page book which it's only a little more than 200 pages. So with that, the story felt a bit rushed at the very end trying to tie up everything. I didn't feel it took away from the storyline. I guess I wished there was more to read because I didn't want to put it down.. A great read. Don't miss it!


ABOUT THE BOOK


Passed over for promotion and dumped by her boyfriend, Nina O’Malley is further frustrated when her editor assigns her one of the “soft” stories she despises—covering a gala benefit supporting the AIDS Memorial Quilt. More determined than ever to prove she deserves a promotion to the NY office, Nina decides to write a series featuring a local quilting group raising money for AIDs research. At the event, she runs into her high school nemesis: Greg is a widower and the adoptive father of Jazarah, an HIV positive girl from Ethiopia. Unlike Nina, Greg has faith in a loving God, and he trusts in God’s plan for his life. Greg and Nina grow closer, and as Nina interviews the quilt families, she begins to question the choices she has made and her lack of faith. Nina suddenly finds herself facing two possible dreams, two paths for her life.
