I was given the opportunity to learn about a new series of books called
"Quilts of Love, Every Quilt has a Story"
As quilters we know quilts are not just a bedcovering. Our quilts are woven into our lives- our quilt have a story too! I just finished A Heartbeat Away, set in the Civil War period. You have a chance to win it.
Below is part of a press release for the series.
Abingdon Press has created a line of books that not only appeals to a wide variety of fiction readers, but is sure to catch the interest of quilters around the world. Each novel in the 25-book series is written by a different author and offers a completely unique story, setting and cast of characters. The books do not need to be read in order and can be enjoyed individually.
The idea behind the series (launched fall 2012) is that quilts tell stories of love and loss, hope and faith, tradition and new beginnings. The Quilts of Love series focuses on the women who quilted all of these things into their family history. Featuring contemporary and historical romances, as well as Amish fiction, women’s fiction and the occasional light mystery, readers are drawn into the endearing characters and touched by their stories. A new book will be released each month through January 2015.
The other thing I thought was fun is the social media surrounding these books.

I've had a bit of a readers block this summer and haven't been able to get through a book, until I read this one. It was interesting, fun, maybe a bit predictable, but an easy, clean read.
If you'd like to win this book please leave me a comment telling me if you have heard of this series and if so, what book you read and if you liked it.
