The Quilted Heart (Review)
I just finished reading "The Quilted Heart" by Mona Hodgson. This book is actually three novellas in one. If I'm not mistaken, some of the characters are going to be intertwined into the next series, to continue the story.
I liked these books. They are historical fiction, so if you like that genre you will enjoy these. Each story focuses on one woman and her love story, but you get to know all the characters easily, so they are very familiar in each story. The stories are set in the 1800s so there are a lot of issues surrounding war, finances, and even deciding whether or not to head west in wagons. The stories all kept my interest and were enjoyable to read. The only problem I had with the last story is I felt it ended quite abruptly. You are given a glimpse of what Caroline's future is going to hold, but the story isn't completed in the end of the book. That's fine, but it did make me curious about the next series coming up, if it will answer the question about what happens to Caroline in the future.
All in all I would recommend this book. Hodgson is a great writer and will keep your interest throughout each novella.
Thank you to Waterbrook Press for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
