This was a very enjoyable read! It was a short story, keeping my attention as everything was paced evenly and the story flowed nicely. It was a sweet story, and I would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes historical romance. Very clean as well.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

booksbysteph says "The Luck of the Irish"
In this book, we meet Caroline and Captain Garrett who are some of the main characters in Prairie Song. This book introduces Garrett as the leader of the wagon train heading out west and we have the beginnings of the women thinking about leaving Missouri.
I liked how there was mention of the characters in the first novella and how they are progressing in their life without taking over the main story.
I found Quaid to be a breath of fresh air. I could see his eyes, his smile and I could hear his Irish accent. It does not take much to fall in love with this character. And I do not want to spoil anything but the end of the book surprised me. It was perfect.
Until next time, live life one page at a time!

Bending Towards the Sun Book 2 of the Quilted Heart by Mona Hodgson
1865 and the Civil War has ended and we find Emilie taking college classes, helping with the farm and running the store.
She's friends with one who is going to get married soon and others tease her she will be next to fall in love.
The story also follows Quaid who has returned from the war and his mother keeps him close to the farm making chairs and rockers out of wood.
He enjoys getting out every so often with the freight to drive to the steamboats, etc.
Love hearing how the community works together and how they use their hands to make a living.
Lots of praying at meals, the food sounds so good...
They meet for a feast after the harvest and catch up with one another.
Love that the women meet once a week for quilting and they give details on the squares being sewn. Quaid has permission to transport goods to the store and the college so he can look for Emilie.
He comes from an Irish family and she a German one and her father has told her to stay away from him, that she can do better than Quaid.
Scriptures are quoted throughout the book when their content is relevant to the subject matter.
Misunderstandings separate them. Love how the quilting reflects what's going on in her life. Tragedy strikes with the fire...
Many other works of the author are shown at the end of the book. What a great story.
