Our Blessed Chaos

My hubby + a 1st grader + twins in kindergarten + 4 critters..... Yeah it is chaos, but we are blessed!

Today's Verse

Two books about quilts?  Yes, but so much more.  Aloha Rose is about meeting biological family.  The Christmas Quilt is a story of the mother of twins. 

I am adopted and I am a mother of twins.  I was immediately immersed in heart wrenching comparison with my own life.  Not what I expected when I picked up Christian fiction books about quilts!  Well done by both authors!!!

Aloha Rose
by Lisa Carter

I loved the authors descriptions of the beauty of Hawaii and how she used the quilt to pull the story together.  The storyline of adoption was interesting as I could identify with the main character and meeting biological family.  Although you know you are related by blood to your biological family,  you can feel an outsider because you do not have the long family history.  The author perfectly captured this in the development of the characters. 

The Christmas Quilt
by Vannetta Chapman

What's not to love about a story filled with babies and quilts!  I can completely identify with a story of a mother carrying twins.  This is a story filled with the drama that can come with babies and when they decide to be born.  I have yet to read an Amish story I didn't like, there is something about the simplicity of life that I am drawn to, however, this story is a bit different because of the complexity of the medical issues.  I was not expecting the heart wrenching story that I found in this story!
