I loved the heroine grandmother, she was such a great character! The way she took care of everyone she could, no matter what color uniform they wore, was wonderful. I loved how she explained why she was doing it to Elizabeth.
There is a lot of repetition, which is always boring to me. Though the romance was sweet, it did seem very rushed and that's something I don't like at all. The way things were told made it very hard to understand what was happening or did happen - for the longest time I was trying to figure out what was the cause of Elizabeth's injury.
The part the quilt plays in the story, while touching, felt forced and a little too much.
All in all, this book was okay. If the synopsis sounds interesting and you want to read it, this is one I would recommend borrowing first.
I received a complimentary copy of this book to review. I was asked to give my honest opinion of the book - which I have done.
Overall this is a fairly short story and I enjoyed the love story, yet I wish the book had more depth in some way.
"I received this book from CFBA for free in exchange for an honest review."
I was very interested in this story. The historical aspects are always fascinating to me, and this book did a great job with showing the conflict between the two sides. It was never as easy as just tending to one side and ignoring the other for Beth. Families were torn apart by this conflict, and the result was just a horrible war. I felt for Beth though, knowing how hard it must have been to help people who seemed so against everything she stood for. Just recognizing them as fellow humans was difficult at best for her. The back stories of both Joe and Beth develop slowly, but it's not so slow that you lose interest. I think the pacing of this book was really great.
I especially loved the running ideas surrounding the quilt. Sewing was something the Beth didn't particularly want to do, but this quilt was a gift from her mother. Through this quilt though, Beth and Joe were able to find some insight and peace in terrible times. The quilt became more than just a quilt. It became a symbol of things as they could be. It was inspiring to think of all the ways that we can find strength throughout our days. This book was very beautiful, and it was a wonderful read.
Book provided for review.
The Civil War has always been an interest in mine--it was a very sad time in our history where brother fought against brother. I can't imagine how heartbreaking this was for the families involved.
The fascinating thing to me is that there are documented stories of "enemies" that fought in the Civil War becoming close friends. How could two people that fought one another ever become friends? This book really focused on the power of forgiveness and shows how our lives can change when we soften our hearts towards our fellow man. I would be interested in reading more by this author!
About the Story:
Beth has gone against her parent's wishes in learning to become a nurse. When Beth arrives at her grandmother's she is completely loyal to the Union and finds it hard to serve the injured confederates. Her grandmother however sees each injured man as a person with a soul and feelings and refuses to turn away anyone--regardless of which side they fight for.
Joe is one of the injured confederates that Beth is caring for and she is intrigued by his gentle nature. He doesn't seem to be the monster she assumed a confederate would be. As it turns out, Joe tried to help a family of slaves and in doing so was shot--his brother killed.
Joe is struggling to recover emotionally and physically while Beth is learning to see past labels and the exterior and see the man that is inside. A promise of love develops between them but there are obstacles to overcome.
A quilt sent to Beth by her mother holds a secret message in the pattern. The design hides a message of faith and hope that Beth begins to discover as she pieces together the blocks.Read more ›
