Welcome to Six Sentence Saturday.
Where I try to express my thoughts on recent reads using only 6 sentences!!!!.
At the end of each review I will post a
rating scale of 1-5 using the cute and original (lol) Playing Cards.
Rating scale will be as follows:

5 of Hearts- You must read this book NOW!!
4 of Hearts- A great read, put it on your TBR list.
3 of Hearts- Happy that I read it...a good read.

2 of Hearts- Just O.K but nothing to write home about.
Joker Card - Don't bother (why did I?)

The Tapestry of Love by Rosy Thornton
My Thoughts:
This is the perfect book to just take your time and savor the words. The story is slow but not in a bad sense, but rather one where you really get the opportunity to know the characters and the inhabitants of the tiny village in the Cevennes Mountains. I would totally recommend before reading The Tapestry of Love that you visit Les Cevennes website. After doing that, envisioning the location, the homes, and even the people who live there makes the story come alive in your mind. Catherine is a woman that I would love to know in real life. She's resilient and learns to depend on herself and embrace life.

Recommend? Absolutely...take your time, make a cup of tea and immerse yourself in this story!
