Add to GR Button



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.
My Review
Four Stars
Copy received from Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tours for an honest review
Libby Morgan Reunion was a very sweet read. As a Young Adult book it dealt with young topics pertaining to a young girl named Libby.  Libby comes from a family of seamstresses but she thinks she does not have an gift for sewing.  When she visits her grandma she receives a sewing machine as a gift. I really enjoyed reading about Libby and her journey to learn about herself and her family.  Although this is a lengthy read for a YA I found it enjoyable.
