CFBA Presents For Love of Eli by Loree Lough

This week, the 

Christian Fiction Blog Alliance 

is introducing 

For Love of Eli 

Abingdon Press (February 1, 2013) 

by 

Loree LoughABOUT THE AUTHOR:

With more than FOUR MILLION copies of her books in circulation, Loree has 98 books (fiction and non-fiction for kids and adults; four novels optioned for movies; more books slated for release between now and 2014), 68 short stories, over 2,500+ articles in print, and over 19,000 letters from fans!

Loree loves sharing learned-the-hard-way lessons about the craft and the industry, and her comedic approach makes her a favorite (and frequent) guest of writers’ organizations, book clubs, private and government institutions, college and high school writing programs both here and abroad.

A writer who believes in “giving back,” Loree dedicates a portion of her income to Soldiers’ Angels, Special Operations Warrior Foundation, and other worthwhile organizations.

She splits her time between a tiny home in the Baltimore suburbs and an even tinier cabin in the Allegheny Mountains, and shares both with her real-life hero Larry, who rarely complains, even when she adds yet another item to her vast collection of “wolf stuff.”

ABOUT THE BOOk

When unspeakable tragedy leaves young Eli an orphan, two families are devastated. But Taylor, Eli’s aunt and legal guardian, vows to help him remember his parents by creating a Memory Quilt. As she begins piecing together the moments of his parents’ lives, the story of the young family emerges and Taylor and Eli begin to heal. But Eli’s uncle Reece is slow to let go of the past and still blames Taylor’s brother for his sister’s death. So, although he has long been attracted to Taylor, Reece keeps a safe distance away. Can their shared love for Eli pave the way to forgiveness or will Taylor and Reece be separated by pain?

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

For Love of Eli is another book in the Quilts of Love Series from Abingdon. As in the other books, the main focus is a quilt, and this one is the making of Eli’s memory quilt. The story is very sad, yet very touching, with two important caregivers that loved Eli. The characters were believable and real, and the story keeps your attention throughout. This is truly a story of love sacrifice and forgiveness. Its a bit different than I thought, but I did thoroughly enjoy this story.

A copy of this book was provided by Abingdon Press through CBFA for me to read and review. I was not required or expected to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are mine only.
