Publisher's Description

When a band of runaway slaves brings Union-loyal Beth Bumgartner a wounded Confederate soldier named Joe, it is the catalyst that pushes her to defy her pacifist parents and become a nurse during the Battle of Antietam.

Her mother's mysterious goodbye gift is filled with quilt blocks that bring comfort to Beth during the hard days and lonely nights, but as she sews each block, she realizes there is a hidden message of faith within the pattern that encourages and sustains her. Reunited with Joe, Beth learns his secret and puts the quilt's message to its greatest test—but can betrayal be forgiven?

    This was a story of sacrifice made during war times and also of pain and struggle. The "Quilts of Love" series are well worth reading.

    It would seem that the Civil War is one of those moments in our history that has engendered a number of films, documentaries, and books--maybe more than any other event in our history. And Ms. Moore has now added a very touching look at this moment in our history, and it is certainly well worth the read. Her powers of description and viewing the Civil War in a little different light bring the sights and sounds of this horrendous battle right into our present-day consciousness.

    I had never considered the fact that normal, everyday people were caught in the cross-fire of the Civil War. It was chilling to consider that one may look out of their window and see an actual battle being played out. People never knew if a Reb or a Yankee would drop by their house and demand money, food, or just take over their home. Makeshift hospitals were set up for the wounded and the dying in the basements and cellars of people's homes. I had no idea how dangerous it was.

    The story was good, for sure, and the idea of the heroine being disabled made things quite intriguing. I did find myself somewhat bored by the romance, and I would have preferred more historical details. The sovereignty of God does come through, and the Christian message is there, but it is not overbearing. I did find myself sometimes bored, but at least I did not have to endure profanity nor sex scenes. If you are looking for a quick read with a simple love story and some historical elements, this just may be what you are looking for.

    I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

    A Heartbeat Away by S. Dionne Moore

    This book is set in the 1860 and the war. Joe is brought by slaves to Elizabeth and Gretas' house and the grandmother sews him up but he needs rest and they fear the troops will find him.

    Loved learning about healing and the use of honey and cornstarch.

    Found a bond right off the first few pages while she's drinking tea a splash of hot water and cinnamon heated up the tea-I drink tea all year round also.

    Joe starts to recover and others are brought in for her to heal. She's always prayed God would cure her crushed ankle so she'd not limp. She loves nursing even if it's for the enemy.

    The quilt her mother had sent means something to Joe, the wounded that she's caring for-it will show what's beyond that hard times.

    So many more wounded, from both sides are brought to her grandmother's house and they must leave as it's being taken over. Jim secures a cabin for them to help heal a bit more before they move on...The women continue to go into the fields to help the men.

    When she finally makes it back to her mothers home she learns many things and what will her future hold?

    An excerpt from Pieces of the Heart, the next in the series, is included.

    I received this book from Abingdon Press in exchange for my honest review.

    A journey into the reality that came with the Civil War. We experience it with our own eyes and ears with the help of this Ms Moore.

    Death and tragic loss of human life is everywhere. We see all of this though the eyes of Beth Bumgartner and her Grandmother Gerta. They have been called upon to nurse the wounded Confederate soldiers. We feel the shells shaking the house and breaking the windows. We smell the blood and unwashed bodies, and we see the pile of legs and arms the surgeon has cut off, along with the flies. Not a glamorous site here.

    We also see the compassion of people who sympathies are not with the South, including some emancipated slaves. Where hate could have lived, there is a kindness to man and the love of the Lord.

    We see God work in these poor people. There is a bit of romance in this story, and we loose people we have come to love.

    This is a very different War story, and includes the working of a beautiful quilt throughout the shattering affects of battle. The book is a very fast past read, and will leave you wanting more, and there is a preview of the next book in this series included.

    I received this book through Litfuse Publicity Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.

    A Heartbeat away...

    The terror of war....

    The carnage left on the battlefield...

    The loss that tore hearts...

    The pain that those who lived endured...

    The fact that those who lived were changed...

    The fear that "changed" meant unlovely and broken....

    The truth that Love sees through all loss...

    These themes are vividly depicted

    in S. Dionne Moore's book.

    A love story set in the Civil War, between two vulnerable people, A Heartbeat Away tells the story of Joseph Madison and Beth Bumgartner.

    He is a Rebel soldier, she is a nurse from a Union loyal family. They are left in the wake of the war that has etched its bloody horror on their minds and wounded their bodies with its weapons.

    They are wounded souls, flesh and blood people in need of God's strength, peace and grace.

    As Beth pieces together the quilt blocks her mother gave her, and Joe heals from his wound, will they find that God's hope is a heartbeat away?

    Filled with memorable writing and characters you want to see healed and together, S. Dionne Moore's A Heartbeat Away tells a very good story.

    Thank you S. Dionne Moore and Litfuse for my copy of this book!
