Pieces of the Heart CFBA Blog Tour


Cordelia Grace watched Bernard Howard, the love of her young life, go off to fight for our country in WWII. And she has spent the last three years creating the Pine Cone quilt that will grace their marriage bed when he comes home. Each row of triangles signifies a layer in her life, sets of memories, hopes, dreams, and prayers for her future, enough spoken words to cover them forever. Her image of their “happy-ever-after” grows proportionally as the quilt expands.

But is the man that returns from the war, the same man that she remembered? Are the dark shades of color that she had to use for the outside edges of the beloved quilt prophetic of her life to come? Can love and faith overcome all?

Pieces of the Heart
Abingdon Press (June 1, 2013)
Bonnie S. Calhoun

Pieces of the Heart by Bonnie S. Calhoun is the ninth book in the Quilts of Love Book Collection.

This is the first book by Bonnie I have read, and I could not put the book down. There is humor, pain, real characters, and a powerful love story. This is not a huge book, but it packs a punch. Abuse is a huge topic and all set place during World War 2. Cordelia's making of the quilt was set perfectly within the story line as she grows and goes through difficult times. The thing that I really loved about this book is how real the characters are within an abusive home or when they are in the "perfect" home. For the time period it shows how difficult life was after the war, it might have been over but life would not be the same on the home front. I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read more from this author!
