Book Review - "Bending Toward The Sun"

Mona Hodgson's second novella in The Quilted Heart series, "Bending Toward The Sun," is a refreshing love story that will reunite the reader with characters from book 1.

Emilie stays busy and is happy helping her father in their country store, taking classes at the women's college, participates in the quilting club and is helping her friend Maren with wedding plans.  Emilie wonders if she will ever be planning her own wedding.  Emilie meets up again with a friend, Quaid who returns after serving in the Civil War.  Quaid and Emilie believe they may have a future together; however not everyone feels this way.  Will Quaid and Emilie find a way and move forward with their relationship without blessings? 

Emilie is such a great main character.  She is determined, kind-hearted and just one that you cannot help but love and cheer for throughout this story.  I am a fan of Mona Hodgson's writing and she does not disappoint in the least in this novella!  Emilie and Quaid, along with other characters, seek the Lord's guidance in their lives and live Godly lives and encourage the reader to take a look at their own lives and remember to continually seek the Lord's guidance and will in their own lives.  This is an excellent historical romance series that is a quick read and will leave you happy and wanting more!
