A Heartbeat Away by S. Dionne Moore is a part of the Quilts of Love Stories.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Her mother's mysterious goodbye gift is filled with quilt blocks that bring comfort to Beth during the hard days and lonely nights, but as she sews each block, she realizes there is a hidden message of faith within the pattern that encourages and sustains her. Reunited with Joe, Beth learns his secret and puts the quilt's message to its greatest test—but can betrayal be forgiven?

This is the first Quilts of Love book I have read. I love any book that has to do with the Civil War and this book takes you right into the heart of the battle. Beth is a woman who just wants to help others and nurse but she doesn't realize the horrors of war until she is in the middle of the battle. The house Ruth lives in now with her grandmama and they have been brought a wounded Confederate soldier named Jo. As the battles continue right outside the door and shake the house, it fills with the wounded. Beth nurses Jo and so the story continues with battles, until they move quickly back to Beth's parents house away from the battles. There is a sweet love story that grows while Beth sews together quilting blocks while the battle rages outside.
Overall this is a fairly short story and I enjoyed the love story, yet I wish the book had more depth in some way.
"I received this book from CFBA for free in exchange for an honest review."
