As the back cover says, things aren’t always what they seem. A broody landlord and a neighbor’s happy-go-lucky nephew both want to date her, but it’s obvious there are schemes afoot…Alice just doesn’t know how seriously to play the game, or what’s at stake. In doing a good deed by sponsoring a war refugee, a German woman who needs a fresh start, Alice gets a lesson in compassion and humility, and the truth about one’s enemies. When a community celebration including a barn quilt tour begins to skew off track, Alice needs help to learn why. Best friend? Brother? Broody landlord with a mysterious life? Happy-go-lucky security guard?
Alice Brighton came home again to learn more about what she was capable of becoming than all her years away in the big city, working in a factory and waiting for her husband to return. Life, faith, dreams, and love, not to mention playing a role in a little case of national security, are too good to let pass.
The story of an era in small-town USA post WWII and on the cusp of the Cold War was an enjoyable project. I researched and helped with part of the story, and Tamera used her home-grown family setting as well as the pop culture references which add layers of lovely texture to the story.

Amazing writing by Tamera Lynn Kraft! I can't wait to read what she writes next!
*I received this book as a gift. The opinion expressed is entirely my own.
Anyone who grew up during the Cold War can resonate with the fear bordering on paranoia that flourished during that era. It was an uncertain time. It wasn’t as back to business as our history books paint it. The author did a great job of showing the fear, skepticism, and conspiracy theories so prevalent at that time. I loved the quilt theme! I loved the way the author incorporated the idea of quilt blocks into a quilt block tour and then into the plot.
I’m giving it a lower rating because I believe the publisher of this book could have done a much better job of editing. There were several glaring mistakes in wording that were quite distracting. I also found it hard to get through the first few chapters. In the scheme of things, the errors are small. Don’t give up on this book. Keep reading, overlook the small stuff, and you’ll find yourself at a satisfying ending.
Once I started reading the story I could not put it down.
