Book Review - My Mother's Quilts: Devotions of Love, Legacy, Family and Faith by Ramona Richards

Recently, I won a copy of this wonderful book on a bloggers Giveaway.   I love Quilts and I knew that I would enjoy this book!  =) 
I dont quilt....but my Grandmother did.  She made me two Quilts which I treasure! 

My Mother's Quilts:  Devotions of Love, Legacy, Family and Faith is filled with wonderful photos and Devotions.  I enjoyed each chapter!  The chapters are short - they tell a story of family, Love and Community.  The color photos are stunning and the quilts are beautiful!
I'm so glad that I have a copy of this book.  I'm going to refer back to it often because the bible verses and quotes are lovely.

More about this Book:
From the Authors website 

Inspired by thirty family heirloom quilts, each devotion in My Mother’s Quilts shares the enduring legacy of faith, family, and tradition in our lives. Rich, personal, sometimes heartbreaking, often funny, readers will find their own lives reflected in the author’s memories and the lessons and encouragements drawn from the quilters whose legacy lives on in their work. Woven through it all is the message of God’s grace and faithfulness, as strong as the bonds of the generations and as comforting as the oldest and softest quilt that your grandmother ever sewed. Beautiful, four-color photos of each quilt are included.

Review: A Mother to Love by Gail Gaymer Martin

I really enjoy the Love Inspired Romance books!  There are several genres of "Love Inspired" books including the romance genre, the Suspense and Intrigue genres and also the Historical books. I have read some from each genre and really enjoyed all of them.

"A Mother to Love" by Gail Gaymer Martin
Book #1 in the Lilac Circle Series

More about the Book: 
Angie Bursten wants to find love on her own timeline. Tired of her family’s interference, coworker Rick Jameson comes to the rescue—as her pretend boyfriend. Angie starts to spend time with Rick and his adorable daughter, Carly, and what began as a hoax soon feels all too real. Betrayed by the woman he’d married, single dad Rick is slow to trust. But seeing Angie with Carly, he can’t ignore the way he feels for his beautiful coworker. And when Angie helps Rick with the toughest battle of his life—gaining full custody of his child—there’ll be no more pretending. If they can open their hearts, Rick and Angie have a real shot at happily-ever-after.

My Thoughts:
This is a really sweet story of a friendship between Angie and Rick. They are co-workers and have known each other for quite a while.  They find themselves becoming closer and enjoy spending time with each other.  Rick has a adorable little girl named Carly and Angie really enjoys spending time with both of them. 
Rick is divorced and hopes to find love again.  And he cares a lot for Angie.
I thought that Angie's neighbors are so sweet and caring! 

This is a wonderful story about family and love and I'm looking forward to the next book in this series!
