The Reading Room - Jamie Adams
I love when I come across a book that I can not put down. Stitched with Love is a collection of well written stories by prolific authors. Several of the stories go hand in hand and allow the reader to return to the characters and town that are brought to life by this group of writers. This book is perfect for anyone that enjoys reading historical romances. 
Audrey Harmse

I loved reading this book. It had an amazing collection of love stories. The way that the stories were linked made it feel like a full two length books and not just a collection of short stories. I would not mind to own a hard copy of the book, because this is the kind of stories that one can read over again. If I could choose my favourites it would definitely be the stories in No man's land. Loved it! I've recommended?the book to my friends on Facebook.

In first grade, Janet Spaeth was asked to write a summary of a story about a family making maple syrup. She wrote all during class, through morning recess, lunch, and afternoon recess, and asked to stay after school. When the teacher pointed out that a summary was supposed to be shorter than the original story, Janet explained that she didn’t feel the readers knew the characters well enough, so she was expanding on what was in the first-grade reader. Thus a writer was born. She lives in the Midwest and loves to travel, but to her, the happiest word in the English language is home.

Anonymous More than 1 year ago
It was actually a collection of several series of novellas. The first several stories for instance, were about a sewing circle in Hickory Corner-- really freat stories. Then after that is a story about a wild tomboy who falls for a preacher but doesn't know anything about sewing or cooking... cute story. Then there is a group of stories about the Stafford family in No-man's land between texas and Kansas. That was another really great collextion and very entertaining as well. The the last story is about a widow and her son just after WWII who is sreuggling to make ends meet. Anyway... this is a great collection of stories that I've never read by some of my favorite authors. Hope you check it out for yourself!
