5-Star Review of "Threads of Love"
Rediscover this classic romance from bestselling author Judith Miller. Feeling unloved and unwanted after her mother dies, Delphinia leaves her childhood home in Illinois for a Kansas homestead to become a nanny and housekeeper for five orphans and their uncle. Only the threads of a precious quilt remain to tie Delphinia to the mother who taught her to trust in God. Will faith alone guide her to a steadfast man and lifelong love? Also included is a bonus historical romance following related characters.
Includes bonus story: Woven Threads
MY REVIEW: What a sweet, sweet story! Delphinia is sent away to care for five little orphans after her precious mother dies! She does not understand how her father could possibly do such a thing to her. She does not Jon and she does not want to go and she communicates that to both men. Jon finds her amusing and that further infuriates her. When she arrives, she finds there is also a sick grandmother for her to deal with. She faces a sullen, angry little Tessie. Tessie feels she can continue caring for the children and does not need Delphinia's assistance. Will things work out for Delphinia? How will things ever be alright again?
The bonus story, Woven Threads, continues the story with Tessie's life when she leaves home to study to become a doctor and fulfills that dream. She takes in a little orphan and begins to fall in love. Will life ever be normal for her? What will she do with two men vying for her hand in marriage?
I rated this book 5 stars and highly recommend it to lovers of historical fiction.
I received a copy of this book from netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
