A Quilt for Christmas

We rated this book:


A Quilt for Christmas brings out all of the feels. Vera, a widow who has recently downsized her life and tried to move closer to family, has now found herself alone in a new town with minimal motivation to decorate or be as cheery as she was in her former life. Out of the blue, a young neighbor girl comes knocking on her door, full of fear and uncertainty. Unbeknownst to Vera, more lives than her own get turned upside down through the Christmas spirit, and of course, the Reason for the Season!

A Quilt for Christmas caught my attention from the beginning due to both the writing and beautiful cover. This is my first Melody Carlson story, and I’m entranced—her writing is unique. I could pinpoint another Carlson story if I read it, rather quickly. I appreciated the toned-down version of some of the subject matter. Carlson creates feel-good stories that could apply to many readers; personally, I appreciated the Christian aspect to the story and believe that it makes sense to include it, especially with this particular holiday. This will be a reread come Christmas time for sure!
