|Endorsements for Pieces of the Heart|
"As a quilter and quilting teacher, I really am interested in this quilting series by Abingdon Press. Bonnie gave us a story that held my interest from the first word to the last one. I loved getting an insider's perspective of the lives of African Americans in World War II. Bonnie took me straight into their hearts, and she shared the good, the bad, and the ugly. Sometimes the book wasn't an easy read because of that, but it carried the characters and the reader through spiritual growth and redemption. I think every Christian should read this one."

"A fresh look at the World War II era, Pieces of the Heart by Bonnie Calhoun reveals a slice of the African-American experience, from the appalling segregation of the US armed forces to the surprising discrimination within the black community. Cordelia and Bernard’s love story is stitched on this historical background with colorful characters and fine craftsmanship. A story to treasure."
~ Sarah Sundin,, award-winning author of With Every Letter ~
"The best of coal-town Pennsylvania in the midst of WWII. Pieces of the Heart offers a depiction of heartache and pain, determination and courage, and a vision of love in the thick of crisis and loss. This poignant story of a young lady’s affection for her grandmother and love for a treasured pine-cone prayer quilt and the man she’d fight to save at any cost will both compel and inspire you, even as your heart breaks at the portrayal of battered lives."

"Bonnie Calhoun's Pieces of the Heart from the Quilts of Love series captured my heart from page one. I loved the voice, the characters, the story ... it was like I was living it with them. I couldn't put it down. Novel Rocket and I give it a high recommendation. It's a must read."
