THREADS OF TIME—a collection of seven Christian romantic novellas about a very special quilt—one intended to grace the marriage bed of a young couple but never fulfilling its original purpose—which travels through many hands and decades, lending comfort to its temporary owners before being passed on.

Will they find the courage to repair the rending of the love they thought would last forever? A Night With No Stars by Jalana Franklin A widower and a local postmistress in the small town of Valentine, Nebraska, struggle with the notion that love can’t mend a broken heart … or can it?

A circuit-riding preacher longs to settle down in one place with a family and church of his own. A Thread of Hope by Darlene A. Dodds A writing assignment—interviewing a Titanic survivor—becomes pleasant when Paul meets Shona. But after he loses her trust, will he be able to regain it? Frayed by Eileen Key Will a jaded Vietnam veteran’s despair overshadow a young woman’s hope? A Patchwork Promise by K.
