    Eva Gibson in her new book, "A Stitch And A Prayers" Book Eighteen in the Quilts of Love Series published by Abingdon Press brings us into the life of Florence Harms.

    From the back cover: The frontier life isn't easy-especially when you're alone and with child.

    After her fiance returns from the Klondike gold rush in 1897, Florence Harms sets about building a new life in her new marriage even though the lingering effects of illness have left her weak and vulnerable. She and her young husband, Will, work tirelessly to clear the land around their Northwest cabin, content with their modest life.

    But then a stranger comes knocking and Florence suddenly senses a restlessness in Will s spirit that she had never seen before. When he leaves her with only a note that tells her he will return before their baby s birth, she is devastated, and the illness that stiffened her joints returns. Counting the days until Will walks back through her door, Florence busies herself with a Tree of Life quilt displaying a map of the farm they call home. Doubts claw at her heart as Florence struggles to believe Will s promise to return to her. Will her labor of love and faith in God sustain her as she waits to see her beloved once again?"

    This book is all about family and love and how love lets you see the person on the inside and not how they are physically. Ms. Gibson is a wonderful story teller. I fell in love with Florence and suffered with her through every moment not really knowing what would happen next. Will is terrific-he's a good guy, he's a bad guy, you want to hurt him, you want him to succeed. This story affected me. It has its up and downs and moments of real darkness but Ms. Gibson has a skillful hand and pulls everything off just perfectly. There is a lot in this book, much to think about and it just interesting and exciting as well.

    A Stitch and A Prayer had very good values that I enjoyed reading about. One of them is that earthly possessions should not overcome your day to day life and control you. This is one of the things that one of the main characters has to deal with and only overcomes it through Scripture.

    The story itself was a little slow, but reading about the characters was engaging. This book is geared more to an elderly audience, and although I enjoyed it, I believe younger ladies might not enjoy it as much.

    *Note: I actually requested this book with my Nana in mind, she is a seamstress and I thought she would really enjoy this book series which is called Quilts of Love. There is no order to this series and each book is written by a different author, I will be reviewing one more book to this series soon called Rival Hearts. Thanks for reading!

    I love quilts and the fact that each truly does tell a story intrigues me. Always has. This short novel, was a quick read. There were times I thought Florence seemed a little childish, but who isn't in their first year of marriage, right? I did like how her faith in God grew and how she started learning to trust Him to take care of her rather than focus solely on her husband for comfort. I was more than a little irritated that Will left her - pregnant and living alone - with just a note and no explanation. As a wife without an illness like Florence's, I'd be beside myself with worry and stress and probably less forgiving than she was at his return.

    There were times I wondered if this was part of a series and I got the second book by mistake. I did have a hard time connecting with the characters. It felt the story was rushed and they weren't as developed as they could have been.

    Overall, I did like the faith aspect of this story.

    *My thanks to the publisher and LitFuse for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not required it be positive.*

    When I began reading the tale, I simply couldn't put it down until the very end as there is a mystery woven within the learning to wait on God. The main female character, Florence, has a physical ailment that not only brings pain but emotional hardship as she cannot imagine being able to handle the duties of being a wife. Will continues to assure her of his love and his choosing her to be his wife and the mother of their children.

    Will asks Florence to wait to be married. Then, after they are married, it seems Will disappears for long hours. When he comes home in the evening, she is overjoyed as her illness keeps her from doing normal chores. Now, there is a threat to their married life and Will must leave without knowing when he will return.

    I found the story really interesting and spellbinding for many reasons. First, is the love the couple has for each other. Then, there is Will loving Florence even when he knows her health at times may mean she will need care. Above all is the learning to draw near to God and believe even when there is no communication between the couple for several months. My heart was deeply touched by the foresight Florence's mother had before she was even born. Florence's mother leaves behind written treasures that speak to Florence about her mother's heart and faith. The quilt in the story was especially touching along with how it was passed from generation to generation, sometimes for the next one to complete or do as much work as possible on the piece. The quilt in this story speaks of life, faith and life. I hope you grab a copy, read and enjoy. This is a great story not to be kept to oneself, but to shared and remembered.

    I find that in order for a novel to be a great one, you have to find a way to connect with the main character in order to have compassion for what they are involved with. With A Stitch and A Prayer, the latest novel to join the Quilts of Love Series, from author Eva Gibson, I was missing that connection point. I don't know where along the line I might have missed it, but it seemed as if the story was simply too broad for me to gain that connection to either of the characters in the novel.

    It is set in the late 1800's in Oregon as a frontier family of Florence and Will Nickerson marry and attempt to create a home for the beginning of their new life together. Florence suffers from chronic joint pain and weakness which she fears will prevent her from becoming the perfect wife for Will. Knowing that her husband will need to provide an income for them, she worries about him being gone from home so long. Even though Will reassures Florence he will always return home, she struggles with finding security even in the scriptures of the Bible. When she learns that she is pregnant, her insecurities increase. Thankfully she isn't alone in the wilderness. She has her Aunt Amelia, Tilly and Faye to help her that are staying nearby, as well as the loyalty of a dog named Vaughn.

    In her frail state, she is constantly finding herself falling and waking up back in bed, thanks to the kindness of family or strangers that find her and care for her. Even though she promises to not wander off alone from the cabin, she falls off the porch. Knowing that they are recently married and wanting that initial time alone I can understand why she doesn't have someone living with her at first. I do find it interesting that with so many of her family members knowing her of her illness, she wouldn't have someone living with them to take care of her while Will is working. They do happen by from time to time and I feel that is where I find the disconnect in the novel with wanting to care about Florence and Will. It's only after she wakes one morning and finds a note left behind from Will, telling her that he will be back soon, she has her Aunt Amelia move in to help her.

    She passes the time working on a quilt of her own that with each stitch sown offers another prayer for Will's safe return before the birth of their child as well as her own health. It also helps with her health issues as she can stay safe in the cabin and create something that she can show him when he returns. Will has a secret he hadn't shared with Florence before they got married and his disappearance is the result of trying to clear up his past.

    I received A Stitch and A Prayer by Eva Gibson compliments of Christian Fiction Blog Alliance and Abingdon Press for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions expressed are strictly my own. This is the 18th novel in the Quilts of Love Series and for me personally, I just couldn't connect with this one. The story was simply too broad and too fast that you couldn't connect with either Florence or Will. The author did use the account of her grandparent's lives as the background for this novel but I think it missed the intent she might have been trying to achieve. It simply toggles back and forth between daily tasks to quick and doesn't allow time enough for the reader to truly care about the characters. I am a huge fan of historical romances, but this one just didn't work for me. I would rate this one a 3 out of 5 stars.
