The book above with one of my favorite teacups is one I checked out of my local library. I am not usually drawn to such books , but am so glad I checked out this fictional historical book. It is NOT a Christmas story, but a Christmas quilt plays a very important part in it. It is a story that takes place during the civil war and well worth reading for all ages. I read it while sipping tea in my Blue Bottle Garden. ' A Quilt For Christmas' by Sandra Dallas will make your heart glad. It is not a sappy romance , it does have true love, family love, kindness, mercy, friendship, and yes...quilting . It is all wrapped up in good writing and the writing makes you care very much for the main characters and what becomes of them.
