Summary

Stitch of Courage, the third book in the Trail of Thread series, tells the story of the orphaned Maggie Kennedy, who followed her brothers to Kansas in the late 1850s. 
The niece of Margaret Ralston Kennedy, the main character in Hubalek's Thimble of Soil book, Maggie married the son of Deborah Pieratt, whose story was told in the Hubalek's Trail of Thread book. 
In letters to her sister in Ohio, Maggie describes how the women of Kansas faced the demons of the Civil War, fighting bravely to protect their homes and families while never knowing from one day to the next whether their men were alive or dead on the faraway battlefield. 
We think the Civil War took place in the South, but the Plains States endured their share of battles and tragedy. Not only did Kansas and Missouri experience a resurgence in the terrorist raids that plagued them in the years before the war, the Confederate Army tried several times to sweep across the Great Plains and capture the West. 
Feel the uncertainty, doubt, and danger faced by the pioneer women as they defend their homes and pray for their men during the Civil War. 
Twelve old quilt patterns are mentioned in the letters, and the sketched designs are in the front of the book for reference.

With his sister's happiness on the line, Sean has no choice. But he won't be able to do it alone...Though Lady Corinna Chase is more interested in pursuing her art than finding a husband, she can't help but take notice of the handsome Irishman who's moved in next door. When it soon becomes evident that her new neighbor isn't who he says he is, rather than expose him, she finds herself drawn into the hoax.

But her brother had gone too far this time for his—or Deirdre’s—own good. For Mrs. Dewinters was under the powerful protection of a war hero, the Earl of Rathbourne...the very man Deirdre had summarily rejected years before. And the Earl was not a man to forgive an insult—or forget a lady as passionate as Deirdre Fenton... If Rathbourne had learned one thing during his years fighting on the Peninsula, it was to get what he wanted by means fair or foul. Now he had Deirdre right where he wanted her: at his mercy.

    You're not supposed to find love in the middle of a war, and definitely not with someone in your same company. 
    Corporal Henry Iverson is 2nd Platoon's Doc. He loves his job, even if the guys don't quite love him back. Uneasy with the “company queer”, Henry is on the outs of everything, except when they need his help. He's used to being lonely, though, and he's got the tough skin to prove it. 
    Private Will Rollins joined the Army to get away from everything and everyone, but most especially from himself. Five thousand miles away, about to leap out of a plane over Utah Beach on D-Day, Will knows he's missing something in his life, but he told himself he wouldn't think about that. Not ever again. 
    When the jump doesn't go as planned, Henry finds Will – a man he barely knows from another platoon – injured behind enemy lines, and it's up to him to get Will to safety, despite the raging war and Will's sudden amnesia… and Will's out-of-seeming-nowhere searing attraction to Henry. 
    The war doesn't stop for two men, though, not for a moment. Stuck between endless battles and a world that shuns their form of love, Will and Henry must fight to survive the war and fight for each other, though everything stands in their way.
