 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?

  1. Bonnie, Congratulations!! After TWELVE years of homeschooling, we filnlay bought an expresso machine this year . . .It does take time to adjust, but there are advantages that often emerge in time. My kids are their own people–they like their own music, their own books, their own shows, etc. They dress how they like and are not addicted to labels because you can homeschool in your pajamas if you want. They think their own thoughts and are not afraid to say what they think.One thing that helped me at first was to get away all by myself for a few hours on the weekend and do whatever I wanted. Usually, that meant a book and a cup of coffee!
