A Heartbeat Away by S. Dionne Moore ~ CFBA Blog Tour & Review

A Heartbeat Away: Quilts of Love SeriesLucie's Review:

One quilt holds a hidden message of faith.

Two people on opposite sides look to God for the light in the darkness.

A Heartbeat Away is a novel with strong characters, and a intriguing plot that makes for a heartwarming novel set during the Civil War.

It is a sweet tale, and historical snapshot of the Civil War, and showed a realistic view of what so many American must have been going through at such a sad and tragic time when brothers went to war against each other.

Overall, a well written book. I loved how well the quilt fit into the storyline. Just a great heartwarming, pick-me-up that was made for some cozy reading.

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!

When a band of runaway slaves brings Union-loyal Beth Bumgartner a wounded Confederate soldier named Joe, it is the catalyst that pushes her to defy her pacifist parents and become a nurse during the Battle of Antietam.

Her mother's mysterious goodbye gift is filled with quilt blocks that bring comfort to Beth during the hard days and lonely nights, but as she sews each block, she realizes there is a hidden message of faith within the pattern that encourages and sustains her. Reunited with Joe, Beth learns his secret and puts the quilt's message to its greatest test—but can betrayal be forgiven?
