It’s been more than 50 years since Clara cared for injured WWII soldiers in the Women’s Army Corp. Fifty years since she promised to deliver a dying soldier’s last wish. And 50 years since that soldier’s young widow gave her the baby quilt—a grief-ridden gift that would provide hope to countless newborns in the years to come. On her way to the National World War II Museum in New Orleans, Clara decides it’s time to share her story. But when the trip doesn’t go as planned, Clara wonders if anyone will learn the great significance of the quilt—and the promise stitched inside it.
My thoughts: I have been really enjoying the Quilts of Love series as they have all been enjoyable reads, but I think this one might be my favorite yet! I was very impressed with this novel,especially since it was the authors first work of fiction! This book is a story of love,hope and healing, dealing with the grief of war and yet the love of others in this world. Clara was a warm engaging character that I really enjoyed and I highly recommend this book!
I received this book in exchange for my honest opinion but all opinions expressed are entirely my own.
