A Promise in Pieces ~ Emily T. Wierenga

This is a book from the quilts of love series, second one I have read and can't wait for more.

This story is all about Clara and how one quilt changes her life.  She tells her life story from being a child, a nurse during the war, coming home after war, having friendships, finding love, being a midwife, becoming a wife, having children, being a grandmother and above all how GOD becomes the most important thing in life. 

I really enjoyed this book and couldn't put it down.  It captures your heart and makes you want to keep reading to see what is going to happen to Clara.  The story has a great morale and keeps this through the whole book.  The part of how the quilt becomes the most important part of Clara's life and how it brings families together just tears at your heart.  I recommend this to all women and especially those women that quilt.  I don't quilt and still loved it, however, I have friends that do quilt and they said they found a great connection and inspiration throughout the whole book.
