Every quilt has a story. Pieces of the Heart tells how the pinecone quilt plays a part in the life of Cordelia and Bernard. This pinecone quit is a special pattern that takes pieces of fabric from all throughout your life and allows the quilter to fold in a prayer in each small triangle. Grammy Mae has been working on Cordelia’s life covering that uses the pine cone (or Pine Burr pattern) for almost 17 years. She is getting close to finishing the masterpiece, but the quilt is going to have to wait for war and many changes in the one man that Cordelia has loved all her life.
Pieces of the Heart Book Review
Pieces of the Heart is one of the newest books in the Quilts of Love series. This is one of my favorite book series because ties together the threads of some of my favorite hobbies – reading and quilting. This book is another classic release that tells the story of a little girl who falls in love and has to watch, pray and wait while God does a work in the little boy turned man that she loves.
About the Book:
Cordelia Grace watched Bernard Howard, the love of her young life, go off to fight for our country in WWII. And she has spent the last three years creating the Pine Cone quilt that will grace their marriage bed when he comes home. Each row of triangles signifies a layer in her life, sets of memories, hopes, dreams, and prayers for her future, enough spoken words to cover them forever. Her image of their “happy-ever-after” grows proportionally as the quilt expands.
But is the man that returns from the war, the same man that she remembered? Are the dark shades of color that she had to use for the outside edges of the beloved quilt prophetic of her life to come? Can love and faith overcome all?
