A Quilt for Christmas by Melody Carlson

 

Christmas should be celebrated with family. But for Vera Swanson, that's not an option this year. Widowed and recently relocated, she is lonely in her condo-for-one--until little Fiona Albright knocks on her door needing help. With her mother seriously ill and her father out of town, Fiona enlists Vera's help, and when she finds out her new neighbor is a quilter, she has a special request--a Christmas quilt for Mama.

Vera will have to get a ragtag group of women together in order to fulfill the request. Between free-spirited artist Tasha, chatty empty nester Beverly, retired therapist Eleanor, and herself, Vera has hopes that Christmas for the Albright family will be merry, after all--and she may find herself a new family of friends along the way.

Bestselling and award-winning author Melody Carlson invites you to cuddle up this holiday season with this cozy story of giving, forgiving, and a little bit of romance.

My Review


 A quick paced heartwarming read, and the catalyst is a four year old delightful little girl.

As a quilter I was cringing when a few weeks before Christmas a little girl requests a neighbor to make a queen size quilt for her mother, but this is a project that is about to change many lives, for the better, and we are there as this gift unfolds!

The spirit of Christmas and the magic is works in peoples lives, and maybe lasting and wonderful deeds!

Get ready to have the tissues handy!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Revell, and was not required to give a positive review.
