“Quilts of Love- Masterpiece Marriage” by Gina Welborn, is a unique and interesting book that I enjoyed reading. The themes were unlike any of the previous “Quilts of Love” books and it definitely isn’t your typical quilting themed Christian novel.
When Zenus Dane’s textile mill floods, he turns to his Aunt who is a very experienced quilter for a way to repurpose his damaged textiles. When he visits her he finds out that his Aunt’s time is already being used by the mysterious Englishwoman Mary Varrs to complete a series of plant drawings for her. Mary Varrs on the other hand is roped into helping with a quilting bee in exchange for her plant drawings, and she finds herself in a group of women who immediately take her out of her comfort zone. Adding a twist to the whole situation, Zenus finds himself very attracted to Mary, but Zenus’s aunt is acting as a matchmaker and trying to set him up with a different woman. Of course, this creates a lot of relationship drama.
Welborn did a great job of illustrating the tension between Zenus and Mary and the weirdness that would surround the actions of a matchmaking aunt. The conflicted feelings and confusion were very true to what people would be feeling in real life if placed in the awkward situations described in this book. I liked the storyline and found all of the characters to have very realistic feelings and actions. I liked Mary’s drive toward being a trailblazer for women in science and making a life for herself instead of succumbing to a the weird plans her family has for her back home.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes the “Quilts of Love” Series, as I have enjoyed all of them so far. This one is definitely worth picking up. It’s a quick and enthralling read.
