A community of strong women support one another through shared fears and grief as they struggle to keep their farms going while their men are away. ( )

Lovely... there is so much good in this story. Women who band together to support one another through truly difficult things. War and all the high emotion that comes along with it and for the lucky, a realization that there is more in common than different. And grief ... I know that grief of losing a husband and trying to move forward. ( )

Set during the Civil War in Wabaunsee, Kansas while Eliza's husband is off fighting for the Union. She and her son and daughter must keep the farm running until her husband comes home. She makes a Christmas quilt for him to keep warm and sends it off with one of his friends who is on leave. She received a letter back saying he is enjoying the quilt, and he is the only one warm during the winter months. Working the farm is hard work with only her 14year old son and-and 11-year-old daughter on the homestead. Making all the decisions also are hard but with the help of her quilting circle they carry on. But war brings surprises and heartache for Eliza, and she longs for the day the war will be over. ( )

What a cool but, at the heart a true story, this book proved. I read it for my in-person discussion group. I found that I was happy Eliza had great friends to support her. The author told a story of strong women that took the life God gave them and made it beautiful. I will seek out this author again in the future. ( )

A Quilt for Christmas by Sandra Dallas
Wanted to read this book for the quilting and for the holiday itself.
1864 during the war. Eliza Spoon is in charge of her home and land while her husband goes to war. She makes a quilt for her husband and she gets a thank you card for Christmas. She does take in a woman with a child, who just a few days ago was a war widow.
The war widows would gather once a month to quilt. Love hearing what the colors represent. She is also sent a letter that her husband has died but something again doesn't sound right with the letter.
She is asked to hide a beaten colored woman and she agrees til others come to find her to take her away. She then hides her at another's farm. So many deaths and she leaves the house to offer water to one who's wandered into their yard.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device). ( )
