“After her fiancé returns from the Klondike gold rush in 1897, Florence Harms sets about building a new life in her new marriage—even though the lingering effects of illness have left her weak and vulnerable. She and her young husband, Will, work tirelessly to clear the land around their Northwest cabin, content with their modest life.
But then a stranger comes knocking and Florence suddenly senses a restlessness in Will’s spirit that she had never seen before. When he leaves her with only a note that tells her he will return before their baby’s birth, she is devastated, and the illness that stiffened her joints returns. Counting the days until Will walks back through her door, Florence busies herself with a Tree of Life quilt displaying a map of the farm they call home. Doubts claw at her heart as Florence struggles to believe Will’s promise to return to her. Will her labor of love—and faith in God—sustain her as she waits to see her beloved once again?”
A Stitch and A Prayer had very good values that I enjoyed reading about. One of them is that earthly possessions should not overcome your day to day life and control you. This is one of the things that one of the main characters has to deal with and only overcomes it through Scripture.
The story itself was a little slow, but reading about the characters was engaging. This book is geared more to an elderly audience, and although I enjoyed it, I believe younger ladies might not enjoy it as much.
*Note: I actually requested this book with my Nana in mind, she is a seamstress and I thought she would really enjoy this book series which is called Quilts of Love. There is no order to this series and each book is written by a different author, I will be reviewing one more book to this series soon called Rival Hearts. Thanks for reading!
