Threads of Hope By Christa Allan

Passed over for promotion and dumped by her boyfriend, Nina O’Malley is further frustrated when her editor assigns her one of the “soft” stories she despises—covering a gala benefit supporting the AIDS Memorial Quilt. More determined than ever to prove she deserves a promotion to the NY office, Nina decides to write a series featuring a local quilting group raising money for AIDs research.

At the event, she runs into her high school nemesis: Greg is a widower and the adoptive father of Jazarah, an HIV positive girl from Ethiopia. Unlike Nina, Greg has faith in a loving God, and he trusts in God’s plan for his life.

Greg and Nina grow closer, and as Nina interviews the quilt families, she begins to question the choices she has made and her lack of faith. Nina suddenly finds herself facing two possible dreams, two paths for her life.

A born and bred Louisiana girl, Christa Allan is an award- winning,multi-published author of stories of redemption for the broken. Her novel, The Edge of Grace, won the 2012 SELAH for Contemporary Fiction. Threads of Hope is her fourth novel. By day, she is a National Board Certified teacher who has been teaching high school English for more than twenty-four years. The mother of five adult children and the totally smitten Grammy of two granddaughters, Christa and her veterinarian husband, Ken live in New Orleans where they await retirement, play golf, and continue to dodge hurricanes.

I am a huge fan of Christa's, she is such a talented author. I was so happy when I got this copy of her newest book. It is one of the Quilts of Love series.
You will just be filled with the love of God while reading this, Greg was so easy to fall in love with. You are going to be so happy that you picked up a copy of this book.
Don't be upset when you get nothing done, because you can't put the book down, it is just that good.
I was given a copy of this book by Wynn Wynn

  6. You do a super job on all the reviews. I love your blog. Thank you for this review. A new author for me, I will have to check her out.

  7. I love this series of books. I'm collecting all of them. This one is particularly interesting to me because several years ago I made a large panel for an AIDS quilt that went to Washington, DC, and is now in a museum in Chicago. I had nearly forgotten about it. Thanks for a great review of another book on my Wish List!
