A Precious Gift a Christmas Quilt and Giveaway

Thank you to St. Martins Press for a copy of A Quilt for Christmas by Sandra Dallas in exchange for an honest review.  I have actually wanted to read one of her novels for a long time.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.  You can also win a copy of A Christmas Quilt see details below.


Eliza and Will have been married for many years with two children Davy and Luzena.  Will leaves to fight in the War Between the States.  Eliza must run the farm by herself with help from herself.  Will she be able to handle this task by herself?   She and Will exchange several letters where he requests items that would be useful for his duties as a soldier.  So Eliza decides to make a Christmas quilt to help keep her husband warm.  Will he receive the quilt?  What will become of the quilt?

My Thoughts: 

I have wanted to read a Sandra Dallas novel for a while.  This story is set at Christmas of 1864 and finishes in Christmas of 1865.  It is also set during the Civil War.  This novel is a prequel to The Persian Pickle Club one of Sandra’s other novels. 
I like the story.  I would be interested in reading other novels by this author.  I was a little disappointed with the note at the beginning at explaining how this novel came to be.  The note did not create a positive vibe for me.  Then I remembered that it is a Christmas novel.  

The theme is the gift that keeps on giving.  In this story it is a quilt that becomes a gift to Eliza.  What is the most precious gift you have ever received?

To win this novel please follow the rafflecopter.  You must be a US resident.  Keep in mind that I am not responsible for packages that might be lost in the mail.
