This was a well told story that showed the care and love of those who put time and energy into the those suffering from AIDS, especially the young children. There was a whole quilt Memorial wall that I had never heard of and enjoyed finding out more about it. The back cover of this story really best describes this story so I will let it speak for itself.

"Passed over for promotion and dumped by her boyfriend, journalist Nina O'Malley is frustrated with the 'soft' stories her editor assigns. Her latest assignment? To cover a gala benefit supporting the AIDS Memorial. More determined than ever to prove she deserves a promotion to the New York office, Nina decides to write a series featuring a local quilting group that is raising money for AIDS research."

Nina will run into a person from high school, Greg, that she has never forgiven for making fun of her and her looks in high school. Greg has changed and is now a widower with an adopted daughter with HIV-positive from Ethiopia. Nina will learn more about Greg and his faith in God and will begin to question her life and where it is leading her. But can a different path in life really bring her happiness? ( )

Threads of Hope by Christa Allan
This quilts of love story is based around the Aids Quilt. Each section is made and assembled at a location where others help and tag who contributed.
Nina O'Mallery is hoping this will be her big break-the story with her investigative skills will come out and allow her to be granted the NY job. She and Aretha will be going to this huge $400 a ticket gala event. Her boss will also go but not to work.
Greg Hernandez life has been a long and troubled one as his wife has lost many babies along the way. He is a vet. He is involved in the project and helps many others with the Aids quilt. His daughter is also HIV+ and there is a bit of talk about the drugs she takes to maintain her life.
Project is called 'we care' and Nina will cover those who help put the quilt together-Greg's crew.
It took me a bit of time to get into this book as there is a lot of work drama but once I got through that and into the real story it is a good one. Not only will Nina have a choice there are many things she will have to consider along the way.
Not only her career but her faith in God is up for grabs.
Love how Nina sticks up for herself and her idea when the boss is ready to hand the story to another reporter.... What happens next is on the fast track and she learns about her brother's death from her parents. She has the answers now and why she stopped praying to God...
Love the ending and how the quilt panels are made, and all the information about them. Also a sample chapter of A Healing Heart, next in the Quilt of Love series.
To me this whole series is a panel in itself with a story behind every panel.
I received this book from Abingdon Press in exchange for my honest review. ( )
