Christmas Book Review - A Patchwork Christmas Collection by Judith Miller, Nancy Moser and Stephanie Grace Whitson

"A Patchwork Christmas Collection" is a lovely collection of short stories that all have quilting and finding true love as a central theme to them!

Join three of today’s bestselling inspirational fiction authors in a collection of Christmas stories from Victorian-era America that are full of second-chance romances.

In "Seams Like Love," author Judith Miller tells the story of a young Inspirationalist who doesn't think she has a chance at love. Jilted by her fiancĂ©, Karla Stuke of the Amana Colonies packs away her wedding quilts and her plans for marriage. Her faith in men has been destroyed and her hopes for marriage and a family is shattered. Then an old friend, Frank Lehner, returns to the community and helps Karla realize that there is always a chance for love, especially during the Christmas season.

Author Stephanie Grace Whitlow pieces together a wonderful story of love in her story, "A Patchwork Love." Widow Jane McClure is traveling with her daughter Molly to marry a prosperous man she barely knows in order to give her daughter a better life. When their train is stranded in a winter storm, a stranger and his mother give the two shelter and care and, surprisingly, a chance at true love.

And finally, in Nancy Moser's tale, "A Bridal Quilt," Ada, a wealthy ingénue, inadvertently causes grave injury to a poor man she once considered quite a catch. Can their chance encounter give the couple the second opportunity to find their love once again?

All three of these stories are heartwarming and full of romance and fun.  Additional recipes, plus quilt and knitting patterns, make this book a wonderful experience to read or to give as a gift.

Each must search her heart, change her plans. . .and patch together a tender, unexpected life filled with love.
