About The Book:
It’s been more than 50 years since Clara cared for injured WWII soldiers in the Women’s Army Corp. Fifty years since she promised to deliver a dying soldier’s last wish. And 50 years since that soldier’s young widow gave her the baby quilt—a grief-ridden gift that would provide hope to countless newborns in the years to come. On her way to the National World War II Museum in New Orleans, Clara decides it’s time to share her story. But when the trip doesn’t go as planned, Clara wonders if anyone will learn the great significance of the quilt—and the promise stitched inside it.

About The Author:
Emily Wierenga is a former editor, ghostwriter, freelance writer and staff journalist, a monthly columnist for "The Christian Courier," and the author of "Save My Children," "Chasing Silhouettes," and "Mom in the Mirror." Emily and her family reside in Alberta, Canada. This is her first novel.
The Quilts of Love series has been one of my favorite to read this year. A Promise in Pieces is my third read in this series and I am hooked! With this most recent read I have been introduced to a new-to-me author in Emily Wierenga. While this is her first novel, she has written a few books, and I will definitely be looking at reading those in the near future. The book is wonderfully heartwarming, and reminds the reader than even in pain and loss comes the promise of hope. Clara was a delightful character with whom I related to on several levels. There are a few twists and turns, and I feel this book will appeal to a number of different types of fiction readers. A very well written book that I thoroughly enjoyed. It was a beautiful read that tugged at my heart with each word written.
I cannot wait to read Emily Wierenga's next book, Atlas Girl, when it releases July 1, 2014. You can find more information about Atlas Girl here.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
