Quilts of Love | A STITCH AND A PRAYER – Kindle HDX Giveaway & “Quilting Bee” Facebook Party!

My Thoughts:
This book is hard for me to express how I felt as I read it. I enjoyed the story, but felt that main character Florence was too fearful, and worrisome. I would have enjoyed seeing her portrayed as a stronger woman, even in spite of her health issues. The story was good, I just couldn't connect to Florence, so it felt unfulfilled to me. I liked Will but he was a bit too quiet, he needed to communicate more with his wife. Overall the story was easy to read, I read it this morning in one sitting.  I give this story 3.5 stars.

About Quilts of Love: Quilts tell stories of love and loss, hope and faith, tradition and new beginnings. TheQuilts of Love series focuses on the women who quilted all of these things into their family histories. A new book releases each month and features contemporary and historical romances as well as women's fiction and the occasional light mystery. You will be drawn into the endearing characters of this series and be touched by their stories.

About the book: 

A quilt becomes a labor of love for a lonely wife mysteriously separated from her young husband.
After her fiancé returns from the Klondike gold rush in 1897, Florence Harms sets about building a new life in her new marriage---even though the lingering effects of illness have left her weak and vulnerable. She and her young husband, Will, work tirelessly to clear the land around their Northwest cabin, content with their modest life.
But then a stranger comes knocking and Florence suddenly senses a restlessness in Will's spirit that she had never seen before. When he leaves her with only a note that tells her he will return before their baby's birth, she is devastated, and the illness that stiffened her joints returns. Counting the days until Will walks back through her door, Florence busies herself with a Tree of Life quilt displaying a map of the farm they call home. Doubts claw at her heart as Florence struggles to believe Will's promise to return to her. Will her labor of love-and faith in God---sustain her as she waits to see her beloved once again?
