Patchwork Holiday. One Heirloom quilt comforts four couples in search of true love. Four stories and one beautiful hand-tied patchwork quilt is the commom thread linking several hearts and lives from 193 through present day.
4 very good Novellas tied together with a patchwork quilt as the focus,they range from love stories to family adventures. I particularily enjoyed Wanda Brunstetters story that starts off the 4. It doesnt need to be Christmas to read these stories.
I really enjoy reading Wanda Brunstetter but this book was a little over the top for me. I thought it went way too fast, one day she was unemployed (in the first story) next day she met another man AND found a job in a toy store. Pretty convenient. I couldn't finish the book because of that. I appreciate things were going her way but it still left me with a bad taste in my mouth-especially since it was right after WW2.

I absolutely loved the stories, the one that really touched me was the homeless family.
