A Stitch and a Prayer book review and GIVEAWAY

I've enjoyed getting to review some of the Quilts of Love titles.  Today, let's talk about A Stitch and a Prayer, by Eva Gibson.

A Stitch and a Prayer is the story of the quilt Florence makes for her husband, Will.  It's a combination of the Tree Of Life pattern and an art quilt, designed by Florence, that depicts special things in their life.  This quilt is surely destined to become a family heirloom!

Florence has to have help with the quilt, because she is suffering from rheumatism.  Help comes in the form of Aunt Amelia, who cares for pregnant Florence while Will is gone clearing up a case of mistaken identity.

Initially in the book, Florence presents as a rather whiny character, and I had a hard time getting into the story, because of this.  However, Florence clings to a verse to help her get through both her illness and her husband's absence.  People struggling with chronic illness may find this book comforting.

Don’t miss this month’s Quilts of Love book, A Stitch and a Prayer, by Eva Gibson. A quilt becomes a labor of love for a lonely wife mysteriously separated from her young husband.

  1. I would love to make a quilt with my daughter. I wonder if when we make the quilt, we can pray for her friends and family members!

    1. :) It's a lovely idea. I would love to have saved special baby clothes from each of my kids to make a quilt with, but I wasn't sewing when my first was born. And honestly, they probably wouldn't have gotten done for many years yet anyway.
