ABOUT THE BOOK
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?
If you would like to read teh first chapter of Pieces of the Heart, go HERE.
I first saw a Pine Burr Quilt when I was a little girl at my friend's house. It was mesmerizingly beautiful. My friend told me all about how her grandmother made it for her. My mind's eye thought of my friend and her grandmother as I read the story of Cordelia and her grandmother.
My heart hurt when Cordelia faced the evil taunts of racism from childhood bullies. The feelings of loss of some of the most important people in her life. It was torn as it faced PTSD when her husband came back from the war. I worried about her being hungry when she was dealing with food rations.
"Pieces of the Heart" is not the only book in the Quilts of Love series, but it is the one you should not miss. It is the one that will make you think and will make you rethink. "Pieces of the Heart" is the best book of 2012. It is a definite must read.
