Award-winning author Patience Griffin has been sewing her whole life but didn't discover her love of quilting until her late thirties. She decided the best way to acquire her first quilt was to make one for herself. At nearly the same time, she started commuting three and half hours a day for her dream engineering job. To pass the time on the long drive, she got hooked on audiobooks--especially books with love stories. Within a couple of years, she was writing stories of her own. It was no surprise to her family and friends when she combined her love of quilting, her small town roots, and her obsession with Scottish romances into novels. She has gained some recognition with her September 11th Story Quilt which has toured the country as the property of the Pentagon. Her first book, To Scotland with Love, received a Publishers Weekly *starred reviewed, won the New England Readers' Choice award and Golden Quill for best first book and was also a double RITA® finalist. Patience's Kilts and Quilts series takes place in small town Scotland and set around a group of quilters. She loves to write about home, heart, and community.

I received a print and digital copy from Netgalley and Berkley in exchange for an honest review. Meet Me in Scotland is fantastic! I loved it from beginning to end. I think a lot of women reading this book can relate to the feeling of being jaded by love and their past experiences that they wish the...
