A Healing Heart by Angela Breidenbach

A Healing Heart  This is an enjoyable story about an overworked mother of three who needs to get her priorities straight!  Mara Keegan has been running her company solo since her husband died a few years before and has now promised to make a photo memory quilt for her daughter's graduation present.  She feels she must do everything herself, but when she suffers a fall and then a heart attack, she's forced to take some time off.  Luckily, her new business coach is able to fill in for her, but can she trust this man who once tried to take over her company with both her business and her heart?  Will making the quilt be healing for her or bring up painful memories she'd rather forget?

I really liked this family and the welcoming way they had.  Mara is part Crow and part Irish and I liked the focus on her roots and heritage.  It was nice to see an ethnicity not featured in books very much.  The memory quilt sounded very cool and is actually based on quilts the author's family makes.  I liked the struggle Mara had between doing it all or doing what she loved.  The story also had its sad and amusing moments along with a sweet romance.  This is part of the Quilts of Love series, but each book stands alone.  I would recommend this, especially if you like quilting or crafts.

I received this book free from bookfun.org in exchange for an honest review.
