Publisher's Summary

Cordelia Grace watched Bernard Howard, the love of her young life, go off to fight for our country in WWII. And she has spent the last three years creating the Pine Cone quilt that will grace their marriage bed when he comes home. Each row of triangles signifies a layer in her life, sets of memories, hopes, dreams, and prayers for her future, enough spoken words to cover them forever.

Her image of their "happy-ever-after" grows proportionally as the quilt expands. But is the man that returns from the war, the same man that she remembered? Are the dark shades of color that she had to use for the outside edges of the beloved quilt prophetic of her life to come? Can love and faith overcome all?

Partial eye opener

It surprises me how far we have came from the world where this was the normal part. I am glad this is no more, all created equal.
I am sure there was a lot more then just what happened here when they came back home.
Really goid storyline.

Real story

This could very well have been a real story or real situation. I was intrigued on how the author kept the story entertaining and I was eager to know the next part. Not a spoiler, but a warning to read the description. Certain things could very well be triggers for negative memories, but probably not with the quilts of love audience?!

Hurt, Happiness, Hope and Healing

Could have been true. Though not a quilter, I enjoyed this book. Listening to the pain - was painful, but that is the point. I was engaged. The star of the story stayed in the background, a pine cone quilt, begun by a woman of great faith and fought for and protected by the granddaughter she started it for. She did not finish it, but it did get finished and that was part of why this was a sweet story, yet not syrupy. It was genuine, and did have an unexpected surprise near the end. The surprise might have been a bit much to believe but it did not take away from the story, because - after all- things do happen.
