Gina Welborn in her new book, “Masterpiece Marriage book coverMasterpiece Marriage” Book Twenty-Four in the Quilts of Love Series published by Abingdon Press brings us into the life of Mary Varrs.

From the back cover:   Mary Varrs prefers botany to romance.

She thinks studying the growth pattern of her tomato seedlings is more time-worthy than pursuing a mate. When she needs illustrations of her prized plants, Mary turns to Priscilla Dane Osbourne for help.

Zenus Dane also seeks help from his aunt Priscilla. In order to salvage his flooded textile mill, he wants to sell her hand-drawn quilt patterns alongside his repurposed fabric scraps. No quilter has national name recognition like his aunt, but Priscilla is fiercely protective of her patterns. Convincing her will not be easy..

It seems Priscilla is the answer to both their prayers. But Priscilla would rather weave a masterpiece marriage for her nephew than save his flooded business. Trouble is, her plans do not include Mary, whose own growing attraction for Zenus could jeopardize Priscilla’s good will toward her. If faced with a decision between love and ambition, will Mary be able to choose?

1891 Philadelphia is not an easy time for women. The colleges are not easy to get into and Mary wants to study to be a botanist. All Zenus wants is to get his flooded textile mill going again. Both of them need Priscilla’s help. All Priscilla wants is to get Zenus married.I do enjoy how the imagery of the quilt is played out in this story.  “Masterpiece Marriage” is just a sweet romance and Mary, Zenus and Priscilla are really terrific characters that are very well-developed within these pages. Ms. Welborn has given them a life of their own and we really want them to succeed both in their professions and, of course, in their romance. This is a truly enjoyable read and I look forward to more from this very talented author.
