My Thoughts on This Book:
I have come to love the Quilts of Love series and have almost all of them. I was excited about picking this one to read as it's during the revolutionary war time period. The story started off great but I really had a tough time focusing on it. I felt even though the story was only a bit over 200 pages, it felt slow and had a hard time engaging with the characters. I put the book down for a bit and plan to come back to it to finish up the story. I will post my thoughts on the ending if my feelings of the book change..

ABOUT THE BOOK

When a band of runaway slaves brings Union-loyal Beth Bumgartner a wounded Confederate soldier named Joe, it is the catalyst that pushes her to defy her pacifist parents and become a nurse during the Battle of Antietam.

Her mother's mysterious goodbye gift is filled with quilt blocks that bring comfort to Beth during the hard days and lonely nights, but as she sews each block, she realizes there is a hidden message of faith within the pattern that encourages and sustains her. Reunited with Joe, Beth learns his secret and puts the quilt's message to its greatest test—but can betrayal be forgiven?
