The Hope Chest Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
A grandmother’s loving bequest changes three lives forever in a heartwarming novel about finding love, hope, and family by New York Times bestselling author Carolyn Brown.
An inheritance has reunited three estranged cousins. Their grandmother Lucy left Nessa, Flynn, and April her home nestled in the woods near Blossom, Texas, as well as a hope chest to be unlocked after they complete a special task. Together, they must hand-stitch a cherished quilt Lucy left unfinished. It meant everything to her. And now, to three people struggling with their own patchwork pasts…
To Nessa, the house has always been an escape from her strict parents—a home away from home. Flynn has followed a profligate path into adulthood, never guessing it would lead him here. And the town of Blossom only stirs up a lifetime of disappointments for April. Lost and with nowhere to go, her last chance is helping fulfill Nanny Lucy’s final wish.
Thread by healing thread, Nessa, Flynn, and April bond over the quilt and all it represents. As they discover the family they’ve been looking for in one another, they share more than memories. They share the hope of new beginnings.

I've lost count on which one this is but it's time I took a break as you can get too much of a good thing!
I really enjoyed this book but have found time after time that Carolyn uses the same formula in each book. Phrases are repeated, the way people act are the same too. All that is different is the name of the characters and location.
That may sound slightly harsh and I don't mean it to but she does have a very specific style. I don't think I can give a fair, constructive review due to listening to them the way I have. Her books used to stir up a lot of emotion in me but as I got used to her formula, I knew what to expect.
This was a nice book but I could have enjoyed it more.
It is all beautifully intertwined with the history and tradition of American quilt making
Recommend it especially in these post Covid days
