From My Library
During the winter, I tend to read much more than when the weather beckons me outside. Of course, being at home during my recovery has left me with time to read even more. The funny thing is that I didn't grow up reading and it wasn't until I was in high school that I discovered the joy of it. Whenever we travel, I take books along or in the last couple of years I have our IPad with my ebooks on it. Last week, hubby and I ran into Wal*art for a couple of things and I had to stop in the book section. I saw this book and picked it up-it was pretty cheap. I haven't read anything by Rose Ross Zediker before; this book is three novellas or short stories centered in South Dakota, about quilt projects that lead to true love.
Each story was unique and relevant; but all the stories had quilts woven through the plot and also had situations that the characters had to overcome. The book was a quick read, which is something that I needed at this time. I would read one of the novella's and then pick up my quilting. I would rate this a Five Star and hope to find any other books that the author has written.
I've got one more book to read and plan to take it to the mountains with us. The family is looking forward to our get together, unfortunately though our youngest granddaughter was sick last evening so we are praying they are all well enough to join us. Our other sil will be traveling out of the country for 12 days and no one wants to share any bugs with him.
On another note-my dear sister of my heart, aka sil, is having surgery today. I never would have thought the two of us would have the same surgery within a month of one another. If you would lift up a prayer for her, it would be appreciated. She is the rock of our family, we love her all so very much and want her to fly through the surgery without any complications.
I hope you have a wonderful Thursday and remember to give thanks for this day!
Joy to you~ Noreen
