The Quilts of Valor Foundation, discussed in this story, is very real. Its mission is to cover Service Members and Veterans touched by war with comforting and healing quilts. As of March 2020, we have awarded over 250,000 QOVs to our Service Members and Veterans.
Wrapped Up in Christmas Joy Synopsis:
When a quilt shop owner finds a former Marine’s journal, she longs to heal his heart…
When Sophie Davis sorts through a box of donated books to her church, she’s surprised to discover a soldier’s journal. As the daughter of a veteran who watched her father struggle over the years, she feels a deep connection to the man who wrote the emotional entries.
Former Marine Cole Aaron battled to find peace after returning to civilian life. He’s always needed to protect others. Now, fighting fires in Pine Hill, Kentucky helps him put out the demons within him. When Sophie shows up at the fire hall with his journal from when he’d first returned stateside, Cole can’t believe it was in the box he’d donated. Not wanting to face painful memories, he tells her to trash it.
Sophie and Cole are drawn together as they both volunteer for their community, but it’s hard for Cole to let down his guard, and he doesn’t need anyone’s pity. After all he’s been through in the past, can he find faith in a more hopeful future…one touched by joy?
This heartwarming romance includes a free Hallmark original recipe for Dilly Duchess Potatoes and a free pattern to make a Quilt of Valor.
Meet the Author
USA Today & Wall Street Journal Bestselling author JANICE LYNN loves to spin a tale that touches her readers’ hearts by putting a smile on their lips and a tear in their eye.

Janice lives in Tennessee with her family, her vivid imagination, an adorable Maltese named Halo, and bunches of unnamed dust bunnies that moved in after she started her writing career. In addition to writing romance, Janice is a registered nurse, a quilter, a military mama, and a supporter of the Quilts of Valor Foundation.
A Hero's Weave
Original design by Dennis L. Taylor; Pattern adapted by Ann Parsons Holte.
A Hero’s Weave is a great Under Our Wings pattern, and was tailored as such. This project should be led by a mentor, an
experienced quilter who will guide the group through the process of making a Quilt of Valor. Under the mentor’s leadership, the group should be able to make the blocks and put them together to create a quilt top in one day.
