With rich historical detail and vibrant characters, A Quilt for Christmas is the perfect novel about the bonds of family and the true meaning of sacrifice, from New York Times bestselling author SANDRA DALLAS
It is 1864 and Eliza Spooner's husband, Will, has joined the Kansas Volunteers to fight the Confederates, leaving her with their two children and in charge of their home and land. Eliza is confident that he will return, and she helps pass the months making a special quilt to keep Will warm during his winter in the army. When the unthinkable happens, she takes in a woman and child who have been left alone and made vulnerable by the war, and she finds solace and camaraderie amongst the women of her quilting group. But when she is asked to help hide an escaped slave, Eliza must decide for herself what is right--and who can she can count on to help her.

Like a PG-13 Hallmark movie: some darker elements but enjoyably predictable in all the right ways.

A short, sweet, and romantic Christmas story from Sandra Dallas set in Kansas during the Civil War. While the plot and characters are not as complex as in her other novels, the story moves along quickly with interesting twists and a tidy, satisfying ending. A nice, light, historical Christmas read.

Sandra Dallas' novels are always wonderfully written, with well-drawn characters and stories that grab me. This particular story is set during the end of and after the Civil War, and focuses on four women friends who regularly come together to quilt, but also come together during these war times to support each other and to comfort the women whose husbands are killed in the war. I felt like I was right there with them, that's how good Dallas writes. Yes, I recommend this novel.
