I am so happy to be able to give away a copy, hot off the presses, of "A Quilt for Christmas", by Sandra Dallas. What fun to be contacted by her publicists to receive a copy!! And it can be yours...just in time for Christmas!! Here is a little about the book...
This year marks the 20Th anniversary of The Persian Pickle Club, New York Times bestselling author Sandra Dallas’ beloved historical novel about a group of women in 1930s Kansas who form a quilting group and share not only their sewing skills, but lively town gossip and loyal friendships. Dallas’ legion of fans have long been asking her to write another quilting story, and now, in her latest book, A Quilt for Christmas, Dallas has created a wonderful story about a Civil War-era quilting group, whose members are actually the grandmothers of the Persian Pickle Club ladies.
It is 1864, and Eliza Spooner’s husband Will has joined the Kansas volunteers to fight the Confederates, leaving her with their two children and in charge of their home and land. Eliza is confident that Will will return home, and she helps pass the months making a special quilt to keep her husband warm during his winter months in the army. When the unthinkable happens, she takes in a woman and child who have been left alone and made vulnerable by the war, and she finds solace and camaraderie amongst the women of her quilting group. But when she is asked to help hide an escaped slave, she must decide for herself what is right and who she can count on to help her.
Sounds intriguing!! I have to say, I love Sandra's books, and have several. Just leave me a comment and I will give this one away in the next week or so. Hey, is there a current day Persian Pickle club? Just wondering!! Do you know?
Have a great day!
