Publisher's Description

After the end of World War II, Clara Kirkpatrick returns from the Women’s Army Corp to deliver a dying soldier’s last wishes: convey his love to his young widow, Mattie, with apologies for the missed life they had planned to share.

Struggling with her own post-war trauma, Clara thinks she’s not prepared to handle the grief of this broken family. Yet upon meeting Mattie, and receiving a baby quilt that will never cuddle the soldier’s baby, Clara vows to honor the sacrifices that family made.

Now a labor and delivery nurse in her rural hometown, Clara wraps each new babe in the gifted quilt and later stitches the child’s name into the cloth. As each new child is welcomed by the quilt, Clara begins to wonder whatever happened to Mattie—and if her own life would ever experience the love of a newborn. Little does she know that she will have the opportunity to re-gift the special quilt—years later and carrying even greater significance than when it was first bestowed.

    A Promise in Pieces is part of the Quilts of Love Series. It is the debut book for Emily Wierenga. She is an exceptional author. This book tells the story of Clara, as she reflects on her life story to her grandchildren and children. She tells of her times as a nurse and a midwife. She also includes a story of the quilt they are transporting to a museum for display. It is so realistic. She keeps you entertained the whole way through the book. I can't wait until I can read further works by this author.

    I recieved this book from the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

    This review was written for A Promise in Pieces, Quilts of Love Series #17.
    A PROMISE IN PIECES is written as conversation a grandmother is having with her grandson while they are on traveling. She tells him about her life growing up, in the army as a nurse and what happened after. There are intervals as they stop to rest, eat, and sleep, then the story resumes. Clara's story is also about Jesus, love, grace and forgiveness; and about forgiving others as well as yourself. Her grandson is a wise boy and gleans from his grandmother's tale.

    The book is short and sweet, a weekend read. As you read, you feel like you get to know the characters, like you could even be a part of their family. Its relaxing and yet, you want to keep reading to find out what happened to Clara. This paragraph in the book "Oliver was doing really well at his job, so well, in fact, that we were lacking nothing, and this, I felt indicated a problem. Because we had not reason to need God anymore" really spoke volumes to me. Because although we are not necessarily "rich" in material possessions we are blessed, so blessed in fact that it is easy to become ungrateful and our mundane life is kind of just that mundane and pointless. I think this book is also a challenge to be all you can be for God, use your talents, your resources and whatever else you have to work for Him. That is true fulfillment in life. There are a few unexpected turns to the story and the ending is quite bittersweet, but I would highly recommend this book. The author did a great job, and I left inspired and moved to continue working on becoming all that God wants me to be.

    I was blessed with this book courtesy of TBCN in exchange for my unbiased opinion.

    WWII, a promise to a dying solder and a gift of a quilt - all these things come together for a young lady and bring her an extraordinary life__..

    "A Promise in Pieces" by Emily T Wierenga is one of the latest in the "Quilts of Love" Series. Emily's writing will draw you into the life of Clara, a young girl that goes off to war with the Women's Army Corp. Through that job she makes a promise to a dying soldier to carry a message to his wife. Upon delivering that message, Clara is given a gift - a handmade quilt. Little does she know how much this one gift will change her life and fill it with joy and love.

    Emily Wierenga has created a story with so much emotion that you will actually feel a part of it. I know, I had to stop reading through the saddest part as I could not see through the tears. Great writers will do it every time.

    I did receive a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    This was a very touching story. Clara is now an elderly woman on a road trip with her family, and she is telling the story of the quilt to her grandson. Her story is full of love, heartbreak, forgiveness, faith. The author made me really care for Clara and her life. I would love to sit down and listen to her stories myself. I would definitely recommend this book as one to be read!

    I was given this book by The Book Club Network, Inc. for my honest review.

    This review was written for A Promise in Pieces, Quilts of Love Series #17.
    This story was by no means what I was expecting. I thought this would be a cutesy romantic WWII story. A Promise In Pieces was so much more than that!

    The story is in two sections and is from the perspective of an elderly woman on a road trip with her family, while traveling she tells her story to her grandson. Interspersed with her memories are events that happen on the road trip.

    There was a lot packed into this little book with less than 200 pages. One woman's lifetime of heartache and joy, the good memories and the bad. I loved how realistic the story is, Emily T. Weirenga has done and amazing job portraying that life isn't always easy and sometimes it can get pretty hard, but through it all the heroine learns the power of hope, forgiveness, love, and faith in a God that orchestrates it all. A Promise In Pieces is a real tearjerker but it is still full of hope and faith.

    A Promise In Pieces is a good story to be read by people of all ages, young women like myself to great-grandmothers who have lived it themselves.

    (I received a copy of this book from Abingdon Press through The Book Club Network for my honest review. All opinions are my own.)
