A Heartbeat Away by S. Dionne Moore, ©2013 ~ Quilts of Love Series ~ Every Quilt Has a Story

About A Heartbeat Away:
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?

Meet Dionne:
Dionne Moore is a historical romance author who resides in South Central Pennsylvania with her family, surrounded by the beautiful Cumberland Valley and lots of fun, historically rich locations. She is a weekly contributor to "The Borrowed Book" a blog for book-lovers and "Cozy Mystery Magazine" for all things cozy mystery. Learn more about Dionne at

New Author to Me:
Dionne Moore is a new author to me and I was drawn by the Quilts of Love Series: Every Quilt Has a Story written by multiple authors.

Longing to help in the war effort, Elizabeth Bumgartner leaves her parents and all she has known to travel to her paternal Grandmama Gerta's. Drawn to nursing, Beth learns alongside as her grandmother tends to the wounded. She is hoping to join the Army of the Potomac and Clara Barton.

Gerta feeds and tends to both sides of the war effort. Confederate and Union soldiers are welcome, supplying them with her homemade sourdough bread, biscuits, meat pies, and remedies. What a spy she would make! Keeping one aided in the springhouse and the other continuing down the road. A Heartbeat Away

Joseph Madison has been brought to Gerta as someone who would be kind to a Rebel during the healing of his wound received while giving directions North to hidden slaves. His brother was shot, intentionally, for another reason Joe later finds. While he is recuperating, his heart is being changed and so is Beth's as she shares tending of him. Do outward appearances decide what is in the heart?
Song of Solomon 4:7   You are altogether beautiful, my love; there is no flaw in you.

Does hidden pain exempt one from a future free to dream? Will Beth allow healing to occur in her own perception of who she is? Does pride enter in? Her mother has sent quilt squares with her to fashion into a quilt with bright colors amid the dark. Hope enduring, stitched together. Time in the seeing of it.

The historical period covered is September 14-18, 1862, in the depth of the Civil War between the North and the South led by Major General George McClellan, commander of the Army of the Potomac, and Confederate General Robert E. Lee. The two armies fought at the Battle of South Mountain, and on September 17th at the Battle of Antietam. McClellan halted Lee's invasion into the North, but did not pursue the Confederates.

Dionne's characters come alive with the sights and sounds of the turmoil without and within. Which would be the greater struggle; to be amid the scrimmage or to be hidden away, unable to be "useful" or deemed so in one's own mind?

Ecclesiastes 3:11  He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.

Beth sees herself with her injury, sustained while attempting rescue of another, as unsuitable to be loved and cherished. I see her with endurance and the will to do right, bringing peace and hope among the chaos of these dark days. Joe struggles to regain his strength and fight the fever raging within his body. He projects encouragement and forthrightness in who he is. They are not alone and are uplifted by those who care about them, without whom it is unlikely they would have survived.

The Offering by Angela Hunt, ©2013

The Offering I am very glad I did not read the back of the book cover before reading the book! Too much information! And by page 56, I pretty much had it figured out, but read on. This book will be controversial.

The protagonist chooses to carry a child for a barren couple. She has three choices of a match and selects a vineyard owner and his wife in France. They oddly, I thought, carried on a close relationship, emailing and visiting prior to the birth. The story is written in first person. Near the end, I would have liked to have heard the thoughts of the husband and wife receiving the baby; especially the wife's.

Beyond a job to supplement their income, Mandy is to be uninvolved about the child she is carrying as she is the supplier. She had her mind make up before going to her husband and family with her plan that would only take a year out of their lives. But our days are not our own, and unexpected results follow.

I liked the closeness of Mandy's husband's family and their acceptance of all within their doorway. Cooking together and sharing meals enriched the lives of the family members.

The content covers topics not often discussed. Although well-written and researched, I think too much was given away before getting too far into the novel.

Catch a Falling Star by Beth K. Vogt, ©2013

For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
   --Colossians 1:13-14
So often we hold on to things that are no longer ours to hold on to ~ faulting, blame, blocking our future ~ needlessly. Catch a Falling Star is a story of what can happen when we relinquish who we are fully to the One who made us and has His best for us, beyond what we could ever think or imagine. Several stories are going on, as lives around us are in real life. It flows effortlessly as Beth K. brings to life her characters with their weaknesses and strengths. Most beneficial? Being available to change. I especially like the growth in Griffin as he discovers his worth. I like the relinquishment of Kendall's as she releases an heirloom, only to receive her own. Grace. Beyond measure.
About Catch a Falling Star: 

What does a girl do when life doesn't go according to her plan? 

At 36, Kendall Haynes has seen some of her dreams come true. She's a family physician helping kids with severe allergies and asthma achieve more fulfilling lives―a childhood struggle she knows all too well. But the feeling of being "the kid never picked" looms large when romance continues to evade her and yet another one of her closest friends gets engaged. Are Kendall's dreams of having it all―a career, a husband, children―nothing more than childish wishing upon a star? Should she hold out for her elusive Plan A? Dust off Plan B? Or is it time to settle? God says he knows the plans he has for her―why can't Kendall figure them out and be content with her life?

Griffin Walker prefers flying solo-both as an Air Force pilot and in his personal life. But a wrong choice and health problems pulled him out of the cockpit. His attempts to get out of "flying a desk" are complicated by his parents' death―making Griffin the reluctant guardian of his sixteen-year-old brother, Ian. How did his life get so off course? Can God get his life back on track ... or has there been a divine plan all along?

Catch a Falling Star reminds readers that romance isn't just for twenty-somethings and that sometimes letting go of your "wish I may, wish I might" dreams is the only way to embrace everything God has waiting for you.

Undeniably Yours by Becky Wade, ©2013

As heiress to her father's business as majority stockholder, Meg Cole leaves her home in Tulsa to return to her childhood home, Whispering Creek, to take over her place as head of Cole Oil in Dallas. She and her father agreed she would have ten years after college on her own before coming to Cole Oil. As an art history major, she had been enjoying her chosen career at a museum which has now ended after the passing of her father. First on the list is dismissing her father's entourage of no longer required personal staff and his thoroughbred horse ranch with its net earnings and losses. She agrees to give it six months to recoup its start-up from four years earlier and close down. She is having anxiety attacks with the overpowering position she has now been placed into as CEO. Cole Oil had been in their family since her great-great-grandfather had struck oil in East Texas.

Bo Porter is the manager of the horse farm she has inherited. He wants to retain his employees, especially his brother, Jake, and their combined interest in horse ranching. He invites Meg out to see the operation and meet the employees in hopes of her having a change of heart in selling. A change of heart they both have had is an attraction to each other. Bo is older brother to brothers Ty and Jake, and sister Dru in this beginning story of the Porter siblings.

Meg has chosen not to live in the main house but instead the guesthouse because of the loneliness she felt as a youth in the big house being an only child. Meg's past comes calling in connection with her former husband, Stephen McIntyre, and the trail he has left behind. Amber and her son, Jayden, were left before his birth. She comes looking for information Meg might have about Stephen's whereabouts, and is invited to stay. I like Meg's kind heart and seeking the Lord for what she is to do next, aware He certainly knows His plans for her. I am glad there is continuance in her life; Meg's former nanny, Sadie Jo, the housekeeper, Lynn, and landscaper, Mr. Son. I am looking forward to reading the next novel in the series.

About Undeniably Yours:

When Meg Cole's father dies unexpectedly, she's forced to return home to Texas and to Whispering Creek Ranch to take up the reins of his empire. The last thing she has the patience or the sanity to deal with? Her father's Thoroughbred racehorse farm. She gives its manager, Bo Porter, six months to close the place down.

Bo knows he ought to resent the woman who's determined to take from him the only job he ever wanted. But instead of anger, Meg evokes within him a profound desire to protect. The more time he spends with her, the more he longs to overcome every obstacle that separates them and earn her love.

Just when Meg realizes she can no longer deny the depth of her feelings for Bo, their fragile bond is broken by a force from Meg's past. Can their relationship-and their belief that God can work through every circumstance-survive?

The Artist's Daughter: A Memoir by Alexandra Kuykendall, ©2013

How I've come to understand who I am.
   --Alexandra Kuykendall

Alexandra, I am so thankful we are the Artist's daughters!!
He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. They were glad when it grew calm, and He guided them to their desired haven.
   --Psalm 107:29-30
I am so thankful for the Lord in our lives. Our Restorer, our Defender. "Alex" speaks with clarity and openness as she lays her memoir to the light with those around her, loving her, speaking into her life. Realizing unmet expectations of what others do not have to give or do not choose to give. A story of settling (not "settling for" but "settling in"), of finding a place to live, to be alive with hope. As a mother hen spread her wings over her chicks to fend off harm, the Lord has done this for Alex. So dear, and so close, His breath is near.

To join your past with open ears and hearts, to open feelings to the unknown. To come aware of what is lacking, to reach out for what is not to be. A heart of passion, a heart of caring, Alex feels her way as she begins to close the gap for others, searching and sharing where they are.

Alexandra Kuykendall is a giver as she exposes her heart with gratitude; becoming aware of what she has been given.
Each time he said, "My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness." So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.
   --2 Corinthians 12:9
Will we allow the Lord to lead us in our story? Alexandra weaves yesterday and today in a vivid and soothing relating of a life hidden and revealed. She has entered with others in hopes of connection and openness to bring life alive out of the darkness into His marvelous light. What is exposed cannot remain hidden to bring you to freedom, to set the captives free.
Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they are the rejoicing of my heart.
   --Psalm 119:111
In vulnerability, she shows what receiving grace means, what it has done; to be loved with an everlasting love.

Listening to the above video by Alexandra, the author of The Artist's Daughter, I understand the strengthening that comes from loss and separation, from abandonment in our lives. Who I am can better be answered by Whose I am. I am loved. I am cared for. I am complete in Him.

Psalm 139
New King James Version (NKJV)
God’s Perfect Knowledge of Man
For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.

139 O Lord, You have searched me and known me.
You know my sitting down and my rising up;
You understand my thought afar off.
You comprehend my path and my lying down,
And are acquainted with all my ways.
For there is not a word on my tongue,
But behold, O Lord, You know it altogether.
You have hedged me behind and before,
And laid Your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
It is high, I cannot attain it.
Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?
If I ascend into heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there.
If I take the wings of the morning,
And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
10 Even there Your hand shall lead me,
And Your right hand shall hold me.
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness shall fall on me,”
Even the night shall be light about me;
12 Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You,
But the night shines as the day;
The darkness and the light are both alike to You.
13 For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.
17 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!
How great is the sum of them!
18 If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand;
When I awake, I am still with You.
19 Oh, that You would slay the wicked, O God!
Depart from me, therefore, you bloodthirsty men.
20 For they speak against You wickedly;
Your enemies take Your name in vain.
21 Do I not hate them, O Lord, who hate You?
And do I not loathe those who rise up against You?
22 I hate them with perfect hatred;
I count them my enemies.
23 Search me, O God, and know my heart;
Try me, and know my anxieties;
24 And see if there is any wicked way in me,
And lead me in the way everlasting.

The very first time I read this Psalm, it all came together for me. My mother died the month before I was six. I longed for her. The Lord has always been with me. I have not been alone. He has seen to the end of my life here on earth, and has come to walk through it with me. I trust Him. Death ~ earthly separation. My firstborn and only son died of a heart attack, June 3, 2011. The Lord has upheld me. I know it is so.

Cover Art
It takes a lifetime to know what-and who-defines you.
When Alexandra Kuykendall became a mother, she knew she had to go back to the beginning. To that hot July afternoon in Barcelona when she met her father for the first time. The only daughter of a single, world-traveling mother and an absent artist father, Alexandra embarks on a soul-searching trip into the past to make sense of the layers of her life―both the memories she experienced and the ones she wished for.

The Artist’s Daughter will take you on a journey of discovery through childhood, marriage, and motherhood. Through short vignettes full of both wonder and heartache, Alexandra seeks answers to three life-defining questions: Am I lovable? Am I loved? Am I loving? If you long to better understand the path your life has taken, where it is heading, and who is guiding you, this revealing and refreshing story will push you toward those answers as it changes your heart.

Alexandra KuykendallAlexandra Kuykendall lives in Denver, Colorado with her husband Derek and their four daughters. She is on staff at MOPS International (Mothers of Preschoolers) where she is a regular contributor and consulting editor to various publications and a frequent speaker for the organization. While she spends most days buckling and unbuckling car seats and trying to find a better solution to the laundry dilemma, she manages to snatch minutes here and there to write about the quest for purpose in it all.
