A Quilt for Christmas


A Quilt for Christmas by Melody Carlson is such a heartwarming story. Centered around Vera, a lonely widow who has just relocated to be near her daughter. However, son-in-law is soon transferred and they move out of the area. Moving into a new neighborhood, Vera knows no one. But a four year old little girl knocks one Vera's door, asking for her help. Soon Fiona finds Vera's beautiful Nordic Star quilt and wants to make one for her sick mother. 

This story had so much heart. From Vera needing help to make the quilt, to the friendships that develop with three other women. Eleanor, who is cold and apparently heartless, joins the quilting group nonetheless.  What happens after the ladies start to work on the quilt is quite a lovely story.

This story is perfect for someone who loves to read about family, relationships and friendships. Melody Carlson is an expert on writing believable characters.

I received a complimentary ebook copy from the publisher, through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
