"Heart In Hand' by Barbara Cameron

"Heart In Hand' by Barbara Cameron is another 5 stars book! I believe this 3rd book in the The Stitches  In Time series is my favorite. This book could be a stand alone but you will want to read the whole series to learn about all the characters as they are in all three.  I don't think you will be disappointed at all that you took the time to read this series, and if you are like me you will find yourself wishing for more books in this series.
This story is Anna and Gideon's love story. They are both lonely after losing their first spouses to a long and painful illness. The story starts out when Gideon and his daughter Sarah Rose comes into the Stitches in Time shop that is owned by Leah (Anna's grandmother) and where Anna and her two cousin Mary Katherine and Naomi work. Anna suggests that Gideon and Sarah Rose learn to knit together. After Gideon's and Sarah Rose leaves the shop, Anna learns that Sarah Rose has stolen something. Anna has to go to Gideon's house to retrieve the item and their love starts growing then. This story has moments that make you laugh and moments that makes you cry. It is a wonderful story of finding love the second time around. It always shows that any love worth having takes work and understanding and forgiveness and patience and most of all faith in God.  In the pages of this story there are good things that happens to Leah and Mary Katherine and Naomi also. This series of books makes  the reader feel that life is worth all the troubles that a person goes through to find their happy ever after. Yes I know these books are fiction but why read them if you can't dream!!!
I am hoping that Barbara Cameron decides to write another book about their English friend Jamie that also helps in the shop.
