LILLY'S WEDDING QUILT by KELLY LONG
"Sarah's Garden" is book 1 of the series, "A Patch of Heaven Novel." As you open the pages of book two you are transformed into Pine Creek, Pennsylvania. I loved this sweet romance. It is as though we are seeing a story of God calling us sweetly and we are tenderly finding our way to Him. But we have a little trouble keeping our eyes off ourselves. Lilly is fond of quilting. I love how she shares that her marriage is a bit like piecing together a quilt. All pieces of hand me down fabric all placed together to make one beautiful poetic story. Even though Kelly Long's words just flow, I love how the book is a slow read. One that you just want to soak in for a bit. I can't imagine being, Lilly. Marrying a man who still calls out the name of the one he loves. But God has a plan and I loved watching His plan come together in the lives of these sweet people.
This book was a gift from Thomas Nelson for it's review.
