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~


  1. I love books with short stories in them! I will look for this one at our Walmart this weekend.
    I have found some really interesting books from the Dollar Tree. I figure for $1, I can take a chance on them and have been rather surprised that I really liked some of them. They are books I would never have given a second glance at when they were full priced.
    Prayers for your sil and hope all goes well with her surgery. You can pass your books onto her as she recovers! Hope your weekend is a fun one and everyone is able to get there.

  2. Sorry your sil is having the same surgery. That is strange you both ended up so close together. You can give her hope for a good recovery! Praying all goes well for her. Mom and dad both enjoy reading.

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  3. Great to get a five star. We are thinking and praying for your sister too. We know what is like as just good news on the health front after real heart scare worries. Our prayers are with you.

    Best wishes Molly

  4. That sounds like a really great read, Noreen. I love that they wove the quilts into the story. I hope your SIL does well...and that you continue to improve. xo Diana

  5. Joy to you too! Have you started using a kindle for reading yet? I started a few months ago, and I love it! It's so easy to download books... Thanks for the review of that one - it sounds good. Thinking of your SIL.
