Delphinia is sent away to care for five little orphans after her precious mother dies! She does not understand how her father could possibly do such a thing to her. She does not Jon and she does not want to go and she communicates that to both men. Jon finds her amusing and that further infuriates her. When she arrives, she finds there is also a sick grandmother for her to deal with. She faces a sullen, angry little Tessie. Tessie feels she can continue caring for the children and does not need Delphinia's assistance. Will things work out for Delphinia? How will things ever be alright again?
The bonus story, Woven Threads, continues the story with Tessie's life when she leaves home to study to become a doctor and fulfills that dream. She takes in a little orphan and begins to fall in love. Will life ever be normal for her? What will she do with two men vying for her hand in marriage?
I rated this book 5 stars and highly recommend it to lovers of historical fiction.

The Avid ReaderDunedin, FLAge: 45-54Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Heartwarming novel!April 4, 2016The Avid ReaderDunedin, FLAge: 45-54Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Threads of Love by Judith McCoy Miller is a historical, romance novel. Delphina Elizabeth Hughes lost her mother six months ago and now her father is sending her away. Her father has wanderlust and wishes to go explore (which means he wants to look for gold). He placed a newspaper advertisement (unbeknownst to Delphina) to find a position or home for her. Jonathan Wilshire has answered the ad. Jonathan believes Delphina is the answer to his prayers. Jonathan recently lost his brother and sister-in-law, and he was left with five children (Tessie, Josh, Joey, Nathan, and Nettie) and Sarahs mother, Granny in his care. Delphina does not wish to leave her home or Cherryvale, but she is not given a choice (arent you glad that the world has changed). Delphina is off to Kansas to live with the Wilshire family. Delphina is sure God has a plan for her. Delphina settles into life in Council Grove, Kansas with the Wilshires. Just when she finds happiness, her father contacts her. He is dying and wants her to come to him. Delphina has choices to make. Will she make the right ones?
Threads of Love is well-written and an interesting story. However, it is predictable (you know how it will end). There is some humor in the book which I enjoyed. I liked the Christian values portrayed in the novel (it is a shame that more people do not have the same faith and values). The book also contains bonus content entitled Woven Threads. I give Threads of Love 4 out of 5 stars. I look forward to reading the next book by Judith McCoy Miller.

Karen RWAGender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Enjoyable historical romances laced with spiritual truths!March 3, 2016Karen RWAGender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Two sweet stories set in late 1800's Kansas, interconnected by a family thread, and a special quilt sewn with love.
Delphinia's life takes a rough turn when her father arranges for her to be sent to Kansas for work not long after her mother dies. She has quite a lot to learn as she takes on the job of caring for five orphaned children and their elderly grandmother. It helps that the children's uncle is longsuffering and has a good sense of humor! Her transformation from an angry teenager to a mature young lady comes more from the spiritual lessons she learns along the way, especially when she learns to forgive and extend grace to others.
Tessie's story starts about 15 years later as she begins her career as a physician in a bustling railroad town in Kansas. Back in her home state after years of medical school in Chicago, she is eager to start her practice, making the most of every opportunity to help others, including a little deaf girl she meets on the train. Many challenges come her way, but she handles them well using not only her medical knowledge, but a lot of faith, hope and love.
These were enjoyable quick reads, laced with some good examples of spiritual truths. Readers who like Christian historical romances, from young adult and up, will probably enjoy these. (Previously published in the book titled Kansas.)
