Sandra Dallas' talent lies in finding beauty, strength, and compassion in the small, simple moments of women's lives. She has done it again in this Civil-War-era novel, once again using the theme of quilting to highlight her characters' lives. Even as Alice uses patience and skill to make otherwise useless bits and pieces of fabric into expressions of love that are both beautiful and practical, so does the story piece together bits and pieces to create a skillfully wrought portrait of the characters' lives and time.

I LOVED this one! The narrative took a little getting used to at first since she writes in letter form, but I loved the story and the characters. As always, Sandra Dallas keeps you spellbound!

Bases during the Civil War, this is a story about a young bride who must care for her mother-in-law while her husband is away. Alice writes letters to her sister which provides the reader with view of life during the era. There is suspense, love, and devotion throughout the story. Easy read.

This book is written in the form of letters (from Alice to her sister). The way it's written almost makes it seem like you're going through someone's box of history. I like that it gives you an indepth look into Alice's personality. That would be tough to be left with a mother in law who doesn't like you much!

A really fun read. I've read a couple others by this author and want to read them all. Highly recommended.
