REVIEW: A Stitch and a Prayer by Eva Gibson


stitchFlorence and Will are newly-married and living in the Portland, Oregon area right before the turn of the century (late 1890’s). Unfortunately, I felt the author dropped me into the middle of a story and didn’t supply enough background. A couple paragraphs near the beginning would have helped tremendously in setting up Florence’s rheumatism and the mystery of Will’s comings and goings. It’s hard to believe she married him knowing so little about him. How could she be devoted when he was much a stranger? Was it her illness that made her a bit needy? Yet, she was resilient. My favorite characters were Tilly and the Aunt. I would read others in the Quilts of Love series, but I didn’t care for this author’s style. I received an advance copy from Abingdon Press for review.
