A Basket Brigade Christmas by Judith Miller, Nancy Moser, and Stephanie Grace Whitson ~ Review

A Basket Brigade Christmas: Three Women, Three Love Stories, One Country Divided
Lucie's Review:

Based on a real life event this collection of stories highlights the courage and generosity of the women of Decatur, Illinois, during the Civil War.

A Stitch in Time, finds Lucy Maddox deciding to open her home to the women of the community who wish to help make socks and blankets for the soldiers. Silas Tait, admires Lucy's project and offers the service of his sewing machine that he teaches her to use. Will Silas be able to tell Lucy how he feels or will his feelings of not being good enough for her, hold him back?

A Pinch of Love finds Sarah  taking over for her mother as the food organizer  of the Basket Brigade. Sarah had always avoided the trains before, but now she finds that she enjoys handing out the food, with Jacob, a corporal who helps her hand out the food. Will the war bring them together, or tear their fragile correspondence apart?

After 15 years, Zona and Cardiff are brought back together in Endless Melody. The 15 years between them meeting again shape them and are instrumental in their reunion. Will they get their second chance at love?

A collection of three historical stories that tell stories of love during a time of war and separation. Though there wasn't as much interaction as I normally like, it was understandable because of the time and setting. This collection as a bit of a slow go for me, and the men while of good character, where quick to make assumptions that made the relationships more difficult. Sweet stories of Christmas romance in a time of war.
