A Promise in Pieces by Emily Wierenga

Quilts of Love Emily Wierenga A Promise in Pieces
A Promise in Pieces by Emily Wierenga was an amazing book.  I loved this book because it has to do with WWII and everyone knows that I loved that time period. I don’t know that I have ever read a book that has to do with WWII that I haven’t liked. Anyway lets get to this review. I loved the authors writing but I have to say I didn’t like the ending. I feel like parts of the book were never wrapped up and I was left wondering about how things worked out and what characters thought about things. I feel like the ending was rushed and that kind of made me sad because I am still wondering what happened with some of the loose ends. All in all it was a great book and I am still glad that I read it.

A Promise in Pieces

About The Book

A baby quilt touches many hearts as it travels from family-to-family and through generations.

After the end of World War II, Clara Kirkpatrick returns from the Women’s Army Corp to deliver a dying soldier’s last wishes: convey his love to his young widow, Mattie, with apologies for the missed life they had planned to share.
Struggling with her own post-war trauma, Clara thinks she’s not prepared to handle the grief of this broken family. Yet upon meeting Mattie, and receiving a baby quilt that will never cuddle the soldier’s baby, Clara vows to honor the sacrifices that family made.
Now a labor and delivery nurse in her rural hometown, Clara wraps each new babe in the gifted quilt and later stitches the child’s name into the cloth. As each new child is welcomed by the quilt, Clara begins to wonder whatever happened to Mattie—and if her own life would ever experience the love of a newborn. Little does she know that she will have the opportunity to re-gift the special quilt—years later and carrying even greater significance than when it was first bestowed.
