A Promise in Pieces

Emily Wierenga


A small gift, a simple promise, a life forever changed

It’s been more than 50 years since Clara cared for injured WWII soldiers in the Women’s Army Corp. Fifty years since she promised to deliver a dying soldier’s last wish. And 50 years since that soldier’s young widow gave her the baby quilt—a grief-ridden gift that would provide hope to countless newborns in the years to come.

On her way to the National World War II Museum in New Orleans, Clara decides it’s time to share her story. But when the trip doesn’t go as planned, Clara wonders if anyone will learn the great significance of the quilt—and the promise stitched inside it.


A Promise in Pieces is not to be missed—a poignant, beautifully crafted story that will leave you wanting more from this talented debut novelist.”—Suzanne Woods Fisher, award-winning, best-selling author

“Wierenga is a stunning new writer. I became so engrossed in this riveting story, I grieved to see it end.”—Serena B. Miller, award-winning author of The Measure of Katie Calloway and A Promise to Love
