Quilts of Love | MASTERPIECE MARRIAGE #review & Kindle Giveaway!

A Rup life received a promotional copy to facilitate this review. This post may contain affiliate links. 

I'm pleased to bring you my latest review in the QOL book series! Masterpiece Marriage by Gina Welborn is set in 1891.  This brings an interesting story because things were very different in the 1800s compared to the 2000s!  Women's roles have changed dramatically as have fashion. 

This is the tale of Mary Varrs and her pursuit of eduction in a time where women were not considered 'educatable'.  In Varrs' world she must choose between the education she wants (and the consequences that go with it) or a traditional family life. 

Enter a meddlesome Aunt/neighbor, a quilting project and one handsome nephew - and the story heats up quick!  I loved this tale!  The characters were likable and I liked how the females were so true to their times.  Often authors take liberties to make the women be defiant towards societal rules and God because of their station in life.  Welborn kept Mary a true lady at all times and I thoroughly appreciated that.

About the book:

He wants to save his business. She wants to be a professor. But are they asking for more than they can really have?

After a flood damages the looms at Zenus Dane's Philadelphia textile mill and the bank demands loan payment, Zenus turns to his aunt for help repurposing his textiles. Trouble is . . . his aunt has already been hired by the lovely yet secretive Englishwoman Mary Varrs.

Eager to acquire his aunt's quilt patterns, Zenus attends the summer Quilting Bee, a social event his aunt has uniquely designed with the secret purpose of finding Zenus a wife. However Zenus only has eyes for Mary, but Mary has no such desire for him.

Though his aunt is determined to design a masterpiece marriage, both Zenus and Mary will have to overcome their stubborn ways. Can he realize that love requires stepping out of his routine? And will she recognize that following her heart doesn't mean sacrificing her ambition?
