Publisher's Description

When her brother is injured fighting in France, Meghan enlists her fellow Harvey Girl waitresses to sew a Red Cross signature quilt to raise money for wounded doughboys. Local horse breeder Caleb McBride longs to join the battle, but the army won’t take him. Because he has kept his shameful infirmity a secret, the townsfolk have labeled him a coward and war profiteer. When Meghan uncovers his malady, her poor opinion of Caleb unravels. Can this beautiful seamstress find a way to mend his heart?

    Interesting multi-faceted story of life in a dry, barren land we traveled through many times in my youth. As an RN, I was fascinated by the way a severe epidemic of influenza was treated as the Army was transported through the area by train. (Not much different than the Ebola virus we are seeing today.) Implications of prejudice and rejection of others based on race and handicaps explored in a helpful way. Loved this story.

    It's been a long time since I've read a book that was hard to put down. I ended up reading this book in one sitting. I loved that the whole story was based on actual history.

    Not only does this book have a great story line, but the historical aspect will add to your knowledge of the early days of the railroad and the Harvey girls! Was so surprised and delighted with this novel; I had not read this author before, so my expectations were not too high. But she exceeded them all! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!!

    I really enjoyed this story. It was a nice quiet read, perfect for relaxing on an afternoon or before bed.

    I had to enjoy Meghan's enthusiasm and her ability to actually finish what she started, though, at times I agreed with Caleb and wanted to shake some sense into her when she kept leaping before she looked.

    I wish we could still find doctors who cared half as much as Doc. You really had to admire his patience, love, and hard work on behalf of his patients. I was very impressed with his devotion!

    Another character we should all try to be more like was Natalie. Her love and determination to help and take care of her husband's family was very admirable. Her loyalty and friendship to Meghan were a very precious thing. I would love to someday read a book of Natalie's own.

    Ms. Vetsch did a wonderful job in engaging the reader's emotions. I felt disappointed, angry, and excited with Meghan and Caleb. At times I just wanted to slap Mrs. Gregory, she was just SO unfair!

    While reading about the El Garces (Harvey) Hotel and all the wonderful girls being trained into their jobs, I kept having scenes from the 1946 movie The Harvey Girls starring Judy Garland. Ms. Vetsch has captured that nostalgic quality that seems to have disappeared from books and movies these days.

    One of the highlights for me was the matter-of-fact descriptions of the influenza epidemic. Many authors will skirt over the illness they are writing about so it was nice to have, not only the emotional response, but a description of the physical cause for those emotions.

    By the way, you will want to read this one with a tall glass of cold lemonade. Needles is hot and Ms. Vetsch has done a good job making her readers feel the desert heat!

    All in all this was a great read and I will be looking for more books by Erica Vetsch.

    I give A Bride Sews With Love In Needles California 5 Stars

    You just can't beat a book with a quilt!
