My review (4-stars)

A delightful and heartwarming collection. The three stories were woven together with three generations and one special quilt.
I loved that the precious quilt meant so much to so many as it was passed down from the first story in the book until the last person in the book.
I have to say that I found the writing of Richelle to be very much to my liking and I look forward to reading more of her work. I knew that I would enjoy the writing of both Wanda and Jean.
This is a definite keeper and I’ll read it again closer to Christmas.
This would be the perfect Christmas gift for a loved one.
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher and was not required to give a positive review. All opinions are my own.
