Promise In Pieces Is A Heartwarming Story!

I really am enjoying this whole series, Quilts Of Love! This book that is part of the series really got to me. I hardly could put the book down. The emotions you experience in this book are powerful Loss is such a hard to to deal with and work through. This is such a sweet story and full of heartwarming moments. With each babies name added to the quilt you can just imagine how much more special it becomes! I love how this book spans over a time period of 50 years. I'm sure this one will touch your heart as much as it touched mine!

About the book: 

A baby quilt touches many hearts as it travels from family-to-family and through generations. After the end of World War II, Clara Kirkpatrick returns from the Women's Army Corp to deliver a dying soldier's last wishes: convey his love to his young widow, Mattie, with apologies for the missed life they had planned to share. Struggling with her own post-war trauma, Clara thinks she's not prepared to handle the grief of this broken family. Yet upon meeting Mattie, and receiving a baby quilt that will never cuddle the soldier's baby, Clara vows to honor the sacrifices that family made. Now a labor and delivery nurse in her rural hometown, Clara wraps each new babe in the gifted quilt and later stitches the child's name into the cloth. As each new child is welcomed by the quilt, Clara begins to wonder whatever happened to Mattie---and if her own life would ever experience the love of a newborn. Little does she know that she will have the opportunity to re-gift the special quilt---years later and carrying even greater significance than when it was first bestowed.
