Publisher's Summary

Marie Bostwick weaves the unforgettable story of four very different women whose paths cross, changing their lives forever.
It’s a long way from Fort Worth, Texas, to New Bern, Connecticut, yet it only takes a day in the charming Yankee town to make Evelyn Dixon realize she’s found her new home. The abrupt end of her marriage was Evelyn’s wake-up call to get busy chasing her dream of opening a quilt shop. Finding a storefront is easy enough; starting a new life isn’t.
Little does Evelyn imagine it will bring a trio like Abigail Burgess, her niece Liza, and Margot Matthews through her door. Troubled and angry after her mother’s death, Liza threatens to embarrass her aunt Abigail all over town unless she joins her for quilting classes. A victim of downsizing at the peak of her career, Margot hopes an event hosted by the quilt shop could be a great chance to network—and keep from dying of boredom.
As they stitch their unique creations, Evelyn, Abigail, Liza, and Margot form a sisterhood they never sought—but one that they’ll be grateful for when the unexpected provides a poignant reminder of the single thread that binds us all.

Not For Me

This book simply was not a book for me. It was just too soft. I could not develop much feelings for the characters and the storyline. It was like a Hallmark movie. No depth and no substance.

Christian oriented fiction

Well written but somewhat heavy handed in the religious area. One abortion fuels lifelong regret. Lots of church going and praying (on the sly). Breast cancer, quilting and close friendships. Betrayal by a sister and retribution. Nonetheless, I felt these women were real people and I particularly enjoyed the good dialogue.
