Publisher's Description

On the one-year anniversary of their grandmother’s death, four cousins from a fractured family converge on beautiful Colorado Springs to fulfill the terms of her will. They will piece together a quilt—and perhaps find a way to mend the hurt feelings and old feuds. Each young woman brings long-buried desires to the meeting. . .and each must face the calamities of the past—and the present. Can a torn and ragged family be stitched back together?

 

 

Author Bio

Frances L. Devine grew up in the great state of Texas, where she wrote her first story at the age of nine. She moved to Southwest Missouri more than twenty years ago and fell in love with the hills, the fall colors, and Silver Dollar City. Frances has always loved to read, especially cozy mysteries, and considers herself blessed to have the opportunity to write in her favorite genre. She is the mother of seven adult children and has fourteen wonderful grandchildren.

Cynthia Hickey grew up in a family of story tellers and moved around the country a lot as an army brat. Her desire is to write real, but flawed characters in a wholesome way that her seven children and five grandchildren can all be proud of. She and her husband live in Arizona where Cynthia works as a monitor in an elementary school.

Marilyn Leach has enjoyed writing for the stage as well as for publication. She became a “dyed in the wool” British enthusiast, after visiting England where she discovered her roots. She currently teaches art at an inner-city school near Denver, Colorado, and lives lakeside near the foothills.

Winter A. Peck is a storyteller at heart. Her first vivid memories are of summer family reunions spent listening to stories of the past. Winter leans heavily on her mid-western roots, her love of the Old West, and the rodeo, weaving each aspect into her books. When she’s not writing, she’s busy coaching junior high girl’s volleyball, staying active in her church, and juggling the active life of a military wife. She’s the mother of three boys and one cowgirl in training. Currently, Winter and her family live in North Central Illinois.

Editorial Reviews

I love compilation books that have a theme running through all the novellas in the book. And when four different authors can do this seamlessly, it's a huge bonus.
 

Looking for a sweet, gentle read? This is the book for you. Four short contemporary stories set in Colorado are pleasant and easy to read. I haven't read one of these myself for a while and I enjoyed the stories put before me.

    In her will, a grandmother stipulates that, in order to gain their inheritance, her four granddaughters must meet and create a quilt together a year after her death. Even though the girls' mothers have walked away from each other in anger, it's left to Carla, Zoe, Danni, and Eve to pick up the pieces of their broken family and make something beautiful out of the scraps that they've been given.

    In "Patterns of Love" by Frances Devine, Carla's return to Colorado Springs lands her back in her memories of being an Olympic figure skating hopeful. Her former partner pressures her to take up where they left off in competition, but Carla is torn between what might have been, and what her new reality has become. And besides, there's the matter of her current (hopeful) love, Todd. Where does the future lead?

    The second novella is "Unraveled Love" by Cynthia Hickey. In it, Zoe is driving to Colorado Springs when her old car breaks down along the road. As luck--or God--would have it, the tow truck driver that finds her is her long-ago high school sweetheart. If only she didn't need his help! But when he insists on seeing her all the way to their old stomping grounds, Zoe is going to need a dose of God's grace.

    In "Stitched in Love" by Winter Peck, Danni has become a pro beach volleyball player--at least until she damaged her knee. She hates limping back to Colorado Springs to her mom's house--she's never been "good enough." But to her surprise (and dismay), her mom has left town and sent Danni's former boyfriend to pick her up. They'd parted ways when Trace left for the Army and Danni for the beach. But with Trace suffering from PTSD and Danni's own brand of suffering, is there any hope?

    The final novella is "Designed to Love" by Marilyn Leach. Eve checks into the exclusive Broadmoor Hotel a week before her cousins arrive but, within hours, her handmade wooden box containing her quilt squares is stolen from her room. The hotel detective is on the case, but Eve is faster. Can he keep up with her? And when he does, can he catch her heart as well?

    The four novellas that make up this collection are all fun reads with a slight twist. If you enjoy contemporary romance from a Christian worldview, check it out!
