A Promise in Pieces Book Review

I have a really awesome book to share with you that is part of the Quilts of Love series, called A Promise in Pieces written by Emily T. Wierenga.
It’s been more than 50 years since Clara cared for injured WWII soldiers in the Women’s Army Corp. Fifty years since she promised to deliver a dying soldier’s last wish. And 50 years since that soldier’s young widow gave her the baby quilt—a grief-ridden gift that would provide hope to countless newborns in the years to come.  
On her way to the National World War II Museum in New Orleans, Clara decides it’s time to share her story. But when the trip doesn’t go as planned, Clara wonders if anyone will learn the great significance of the quilt—and the promise stitched inside it.
Clara really did lead a full life! She was one of those people who seem to know what to do and how to do it. She never hesitated during the war and knew she needed to go to France and help out with the wounded soldiers.

That journey is what started her on her life quest and she became someone who wanted to help others because she felt so blessed herself. Yes, there are ups and downs in our life but it is how we choose to handle them is what makes us what we are. In the long run, Clara decided to see the light and lived her life accordingly.

Once Clara realized that all the people in her life that she had met all had a special "light" about them and they knew that they had a purpose. Clara also realized that God loved her no matter which path she chose to follow, just like he loves all of us. Clara realized she had some good years ahead of her and stopped feeling sorry for herself and got busy helping others less fortunate than her.

It's a hard life out there and it's how you choose to accept that and live your life the best that you can that will determine how happy you are in this present life. This book is a good example of how you can go about being happy and it will give you some inspiration.

Happy Reading!
