Mazie and Edward have been together over two years and they both are in love with each other? Then why is Mazie so reluctant to say Yes? Mazie knows in her heart that Edward is the one that she wants to spend the rest of her life with, but when the big "M" question comes around, she is not able to get the word yes out.
Mimi, Mazie's great-grandmother has moved from Alabama to California to live with Mazie and her mother, Lilly. Mimi is 93 years old and she knows that her time is coming to a close. One night, as Mazie is getting her grandmother ready for bed, she asks Maize to open her chest. The chest that for as long as Mazie can remember, was forbidden to anyone to open.
As Mazie opens the chest, she is asked to take out the quilt. This begins a time of storytelling about the squares and what each one means. Will Mazie finally find the reason that she has been so reluctant to give Edward the answer he is wanting in the time that both she and Edward sit at the bedside of Mimi listening as she tells the story of the quilt? Or will the quilt be the one thing that will build a bridge between them.
This was a book that I downloaded on my kindle from Netgalley. My review is from my heart and I so encourage you to go out and but the book in February. You will not be disappointed. I started in one afternoon and finished it that night. It is that good. You will not want to put it down. So what, if no one gets to eat supper or the kids have to put themselves to bed. I am so blessed to have a hubby that understands my need to finish a book. Loved it.
