Series: American Heritage Quilt Series
Genre: YA/Historical Fiction
Coming from a long line of seamstresses, Libby has yet to sew anything more than the rudimentary button or hem, but on a visit to Connecticut she learns more than just how to sew patchwork. Set in 1855 New England and London, this tender story, Libby Morgan: Reunion, follows tenacious Elizabeth (Libby) Jane Morgan through her thirteenth summer of new adventures at home and abroad. She is given a birthday gift of sewing tools and fabric, as well as old family letters to use as templates for making her first quilt. Her decision to first read the letters results in questions that only her Grandmother Morgan’s stories can answer—stories of true love, horrible loss and family connections to London nobles. Her keen eye and inquisitive nature draws her family into a mysterious investigation that tests their faith, challenges their ability to forgive, and results in a resurrection and reunion of lost hearts.

Review: To say that I fell in love with this book would be an understatement. I've always loved stories about quilts and have read most of Jennifer Chiaverini's series, as well as Wanda Brunstetter's quilting series too.
This is a young adult historical set in 1855 and Libby is a wonderful character. I've not read many historical novels with the main character being so young, but from the start I loved Libby. She acts older then her thirteen years, but occasionally will slip up and remind us, she's still not quite a grown up.
This is more than just Libby's story, it's a family drama too, as she uses letters to create her first quilt, and those letters make up the most intriguing part of the story.
This was a wonderfully well written story, and one that will draw readers in, especially if they have a love for quilts and quilt making.
