A Promise in Pieces By Emily Wierenga


A small gift, a simple promise, a life forever changed It’s been more than fifty years since Clara cared for injured WWII soldiers in the Women’s Army Corp. Fifty years since she promised to deliver a dying soldier’s last wish. And fifty years since that soldier’s young widow gave her the baby quilt—a grief-ridden gift that would provide hope to countless newborns in the years to come. On her way to the National World War II Museum in New Orleans, Clara decides it’s time to share her story. Little does she know she will re-gift the quilt one more time—to a recipient who, perhaps, is most deserving of all.

This just may have been the best Quilts of Love book , in my opinion. Even if it did make me cry a lot.
I will be real honest here the book was to short for me, I would love to have spent more time with the characters and the author could have developed the characters just a bit more.
I did however find this book to be like and old quilt warm and cozy,
I can't wait to read more from this author. If you have not read any of the Quilts of Love books, this is the one I would pick up first.
I gave this book 4.5 stars. I recommend it. Really good debut from this author.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.
