“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.
Jilted by her fiancé, Karla packs away her wedding quilts and her plans for marriage.
Widow Jane travels to marry a prosperous man she barely knows in order to give her daughter a better life—then is stranded in a winter storm.
Ada, a wealthy ingénue, inadvertently causes grave injury to a poor man she once considered quite a catch. Each must search her heart, change her plans... and patch together a tender, unexpected life filled with love.” - description from amazon.com
This is a three story collection, with stories by Nancy Moser, Judith Miller, and Stephanie Grace Whitson. While perusing through this collection, “A Patchwork Love” is basically the only one out of the three that I connected with. The others just didn't keep me very interested, which was a disappointment since I had been anticipating them all.
In “A Patchwork Love,” a widow by the name of Jane is traveling to marry a prosperous man she barely knows so she can give her daughter a better life. But en route to their destination they are stranded on a train in a really nasty storm, while the daughter is badly sick. A few people come out to help them… and the rest I can't give away. I did really enjoy this story in the collection and it was a very worthwhile read. I've only read one other thing by Stephanie Grace Whitson before, and it was great too. Definitely check this collection out for the Christmas season!
