Like a PG-13 Hallmark movie: some darker elements but enjoyably predictable in all the right ways.

A short, sweet, and romantic Christmas story from Sandra Dallas set in Kansas during the Civil War. While the plot and characters are not as complex as in her other novels, the story moves along quickly with interesting twists and a tidy, satisfying ending. A nice, light, historical Christmas read.

Sandra Dallas' novels are always wonderfully written, with well-drawn characters and stories that grab me. This particular story is set during the end of and after the Civil War, and focuses on four women friends who regularly come together to quilt, but also come together during these war times to support each other and to comfort the women whose husbands are killed in the war. I felt like I was right there with them, that's how good Dallas writes. Yes, I recommend this novel.
