A Heartbeat Away
While I am not a fan of war stories, historical or modern day, I am a fan of quilt stories. I love this Quilts of Love Series, and have read most of this series. So while I am not a fan of battle scenes, I have to say this author was a great story teller and shared the battle scenes very well. Beth worked on this quilt all during the story, as she worked caring for the injured soldiers. A love story between two unlikely people. Beth and Joe the soldier for the other side. So while I did not connect in a deep way to this story because of the war story, I did enjoy it. A book that you will enjoy and can read quickly since it is not a large book. 4 stars

About A Heartbeat Away:
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?
