My Review




The three stories in this book revolve around a special Christmas Quilt, owned by the same family, but passed down through the generations.
The three novellas’ are written by three different authors, and are tied into one another. All are three of the tales are based on love and romance, and of course family.
The bible verse “For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me”. Psalm 31:3 written on the quilt and appropriate for the theme here.
The perfect book for a special Christmas story, each story can stand alone, but are tied in perfectly.
I received this book through Net Galley and Barbour Publishing, and was not required to give a positive review.
