MY THOUGHTS: A Stitch and A Prayer is part of the Quilts of Love series, a series of books by various authors, with quilts and quilting as the central theme of the stories. I've read several of them, and have really enjoyed them. Although I'm not a quilter, I'm fascinated by quilts and quilting. A Stitch and a Prayer was a sweet story of a fragile young woman who is newly married and living in the woods in a cabin. I enjoyed the story for many reasons, as it had several components of things I love reading about-new settlers in the West in the 1800s, pregnancy and birth, and quilts. At the start of the story, there were several characters introduced and I had a hard time keeping them straight. For a moment, I thought maybe this book was a sequel. As I got further into the story, I was able to keep everyone straight. The story was a quick read at just 197 pages, with discussion questions after as well as a sneak peak at a new book, Rival Hearts.
