A Promise in Pieces - Emily Wierenga

About the book (from the publisher):

A small gift, a simple promise, a life forever changed It’s been more than fifty years since Clara cared for injured WWII soldiers in the Women’s Army Corp. Fifty years since she promised to deliver a dying soldier’s last wish. And fifty years since that soldier’s young widow gave her the baby quilt—a grief-ridden gift that would provide hope to countless newborns in the years to come. On her way to the National World War II Museum in New Orleans, Clara decides it’s time to share her story. Little does she know she will re-gift the quilt one more time—to a recipient who, perhaps, is most deserving of all.

My thoughts:

As I've mentioned before with a few other books from this series, I love the idea and concept of these books!  Now...if you do a quick search for this series, you will find that this is not the first in the series.  It's ok, relax, and take a deep breath.  You do not have to read every book that was written before this one!  The series title is, more or less, a way to link the "like" subject books together for those wishing to read more on the same topic!  Don't believe me?  Check out the series homepage, here.

Each time I pick up a new book from the Quilts of Love series I am intrigued by the connection people (women especially) have with quilts.  Whether it's the older generation that quilted them, or the younger generation that experiences them for the first time, quilts and their history bring many people together.

The author of this book, Emily Wierenga, was a new author to me when I saw this book.  With that said, this was another great story to add to this series!  I can't recommend them enough!  You won't go wrong with whichever one you pick!

**I received this book in exchange for my honest review**
