Maybelle In Stitches Will Draw You In And Keep You There!

Maybelle In Stitches

I have been able to review another wonderful book that is a part of the Quilts Of Love Series! This book is no exception to how wonderful the whole series is. Right from the start you are drawn into the story! Maybelle is an exceptional character. The time period is one of my favorite to read about, WWII! I have watched all kinds of movies and read all kinds of books about it and this one comes from a point of view that is much different than most. We see it from the home front. Throughout the whole book I was caught up in laughter, tears and just a boundless amount of emotions. I can only imagine what it was like for all the women who were home waiting for their men to return from the war. I think this is one book you will really enjoy!

About the Book:

Maybelle Kazinzki can’t sew. She was after all, the only girl in the seventh grade Home Economics class to sew the zipper in the neck hole of the A-Line dress they were supposed to make. But when she finds an unfinished quilt in the attic of her mother’s house she gets the crazy idea to finish it—somehow, come heck or high water. She thinks it will help fill the lonely nights while her husband, Holden, is serving overseas during World War II. Her recently departed mother’s quilt is made from scraps of material Maybelle traces back to her mother’s childhood, her grandmother’s childhood and her own childhood. She tries to add one of Holden’s stripes to it but the sewing is not going well and neither is her life. After receiving some harsh news, Maybelle’s faith falters and she puts the quilt away and stops trusting God. But God is faithful- no matter what. And it’ll take a group of neighborhood women armed with quilting needles to help Maybelle believe that.
