Book Review - "A Heartbeat Away"

 Book Info 
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?

My Review:
"A Heartbeat Away," written by S. Dionne Moore, is a Quilts of Love story and it is a beautiful, sweet love story set during the Civil War.  Joe and Beth are both strong main characters and ones I fell in love with throughout the story.  Gerta is a character I admired as well and loved her role in the story and in their lives.  Joe and Beth are each fighting for their beliefs and are on opposite sides, yet they cannot help that their hearts are drawn to each other.  I actually felt like I was transported back in time during this story and immersed in the characters' lives.  This is the first book that I have read in this series, and I loved how the quilt was such a part of the story.  I will be reading more in this series for sure!
