Special Guest Mona Hodgson

The Quilted Heart

Mona Hodgson has taken the lives of three women and woven them together in the aftermath of the Civil War. Each one has a unique story, yet they blend in such a way that the reader is drawn into one seamless unfolding of events which change the direction of each of their lives by the most unlikely of men for their situation. With distinct personalities that resonate on the page, Mona gives the reader stories of courage and stamina that will capture the heart and keep the pages turning. 

Like a beautiful patchwork quilt, the three novellas in The Quilted Heart tell stories of lives stitched together with love and God’s unending grace. 
 
Once a week, Elsa Brantenberg hosts the Saint Charles Quilting Circle at her farmhouse on the outskirts of the riverside town of St. Charles, Missouri. The ladies who gather there have all experienced heartache related to the intense hardships of the Civil War, and together, they are facing their painful circumstances with friendship and prayer. Can the tattered pieces of their hearts be stitched together by God’s grace? 

Maren, Emilie, and Caroline each have a different story, but put together, they become a patchwork of love and courage.

Glad to have you aboard, Sally and Amy. This is a great book by Mona and a great idea to have three novellas in one book that read like one continuous novel.

Hello Martha. I commented on one of these posts but don't see it. May have just been put on yet. Didn't want to lose a chance to win MOna's book tho so will comment again. I am a follower of yours. Thanks!
I think I would have found this trip a very big deal and wonder if I would have been strong enough for all that I would have had to endure. I've never been a very strong person and think I would need to be to make this journey. I would love to win Mona's book. I am a follower of yours.

I enjoyed this interview and getting to know Garrett. I have to say I would not have been one of the adventurous ones to head West to unknown territory. When I was in high school I wanted to leave home so bad that I couldn't stand it. However, I never had enough money to leave home. I am not sure that if I had 1,000.00 in the bank that it would have been enough. I would have figured out how long that would last and then what. My little sister ran away from home with a friend. They had 27 cents between them and the clothes on their back. They were gone for 6 weeks. fishingjan[at]aol[dot]com
