Quilts of Love Book Series…

If you are a regular reader, then you know that I have been reviewing a few books for Abingdon Press’ ‘Quilts of Love’ book series.

This is the third and last book…and apparently, I saved the best book for last and I didn’t even know it! 

‘For Love Of Eli’ by Loree Lough was a great read…how could it not!  Throw together a small orphaned boy and an aunt from his father’s side and an uncle from his mother’s side…both want him, both love him and they are both single…do you see where I am headed here?  The aunt is a quilter and is making a memory quilt to honour the boy’s parents and family…


Ok…maybe I over simplified things a bit…Here is a MUCH better synopsis of ‘FOR LOVE OF ELI’…

When unspeakable tragedy leaves young Eli an orphan, two families are devastated. But Taylor, Eli’s legal guardian, vows to help him remember his parents by creating a Memory Quilt. As she begins piecing together the moments of his parent's lives, the story of the young family begins to emerge and Taylor and Eli begin to heal.

But, for Eli’s uncle Reece, the past is slow in letting go. Reece still blames Taylor’s brother for his sister’s death and that fact forces him to keep a safe distance from Taylor, who he has long been attracted to. Can their shared love for Eli pave the way to forgiveness or will Taylor and Reece be separated by pain?

Anyways, I am donating this copy to the Heritage Quilters’ Library.  They have just started up a fictional book section in their small lending library and this will be a lovely addition! 

BUT not to worry…if you are interested in this book or in the series you can get go HERE!

First let me also tell you a bit about this series of books….

Abingdon Press has created a line of books that not only appeals to a wide variety of fiction readers, but is sure to catch the interest of quilters around the world. Each novel in the 25-book series is written by a different author and offers a completely unique story, setting and cast of characters. The books do not need to be read in order and can be enjoyed individually.

The idea behind the series (launched fall 2012) is that quilts tell stories of love and loss, hope and faith, tradition and new beginnings. The Quilts of Love series focuses on the women who quilted all of these things into their family history. Featuring contemporary and historical romances, as well as Amish fiction, women’s fiction and the occasional light mystery, readers are drawn into the endearing characters and touched by their stories. A new book will be released each month through January 2015.

Thanks for the opportunity to review these books, Abingdon Press!

As for me, I am still full from last night’s turkey dinner!  UGH!  As usual, I ate way too much!  I am hoping that the quilters at Heritage will work it off me!  Yes, we meet even on a holiday weekend!  I’m sure most of us have our Thanksgiving Meal on Sunday to free up our Monday Quilting day!!  :))  That way we go home to LEFTOVERS…the best part of a turkey dinner!
