Publisher's Summary

When unspeakable tragedy leaves young Eli an orphan, two families are devastated. But Taylor, Eli’s aunt and legal guardian, vows to help him remember his parents by creating a Memory Quilt. As she begins piecing together the moments of his parents' lives, the story of the young family emerges and Taylor and Eli begin to heal. But Eli’s uncle Reece is slow to let go of the past and still blames Taylor’s brother for his sister’s death. So, although he has long been attracted to Taylor, Reece keeps a safe distance away. Can their shared love for Eli pave the way to forgiveness or will Taylor and Reece be separated by pain?

Great book

This was a warm & beautiful book. It showed the Love of an aunt & uncle for one adorable 4 year old who talked like a 20 year old but was incredibly resilient to what life had sent his way. This is one I will read more than once.

Disappointed

Three years later? Where was the first moment they looked at each other and knew ? Where was the first kiss? Where was Eli's excitement and his participation in their marriage? I wanted to experience those moments, not be filled in later.

True to Yourself

The story was engaging and full of emotions that the reader may see themselves feeling at times.

Great story till the last chapter

The story went well until suddenly the last chapter, when it jumped from unsureness in the relationship, to suddenly resolved with a patchwork explanation of how it was resolved, as if the author was suddenly in a rush to end it.
Very disappointing ending.
I’m glad I didn’t pay for this one.

Good story

The story was actually enthralling and kept my interest throughout. Extremely disappointed in the ending. There should have been another chapter; however, the author wrapped it up in an epilogue. Did she run out of time before publisher’s deadlines. I felt cheated after listening all of those hours.

Jenny's review

This was a great experience to be able to have a story read to me and be able to listen even at night. Loree Lough did a great job as always! Taylor was a wonderful heroine to get to know with her amazing heart for others and you come to understand why her sister in law chooses her for Eli. Reese on the other hand is furious with his sister for this very reason even though Taylor extends an olive branch to him. Things start to change Reese's mind about Taylor after he has started taking notice of her thoughtful gestures and that awakens his own heart. Will they see that they can work better as a team as Eli draws them ever closer together!
