Climb Under The Quilt

I picked this title up because I'd read one of these "Quilting friends" books before and enjoyed it far more than I'd expected to given that I have no real interest in quilting and I'm not usually a big fan of this type of women's fiction. But after reading a few disturbing novels -- "A Thousand Splendid Suns" and a grisly mystery or too I wanted something warm and comforting that didn't depress me -- and as I suspected this book, as with the previous book I'd read in the series, fits the bill nicely. If you like Maeve Binchy, this author is of like mind and spirit. She writes well, many of her observations are trenchant rather than trite, and if the book pulls together in predictable fashion it's okay- this is the kind of book where the reader wants exactly that. I wanted it, and I got it and so was the perfect read at the time.

I give it three stars because yeah, at the end of the day it's predictable and formulaic, but if you want entertaining, well-wrought characters that you can relate to and like, and a break from more disturbing material...climb under the quilt!

Warm and Healing, Like Grandma's House

This is the second in the Elm Creek Quilts series, and I finished it in a day and a half. The women in the quilting circle with their real life problems, as well as the aging Sylvia, accept and love one another in spite of all their short comings, and sometimes, I think BECAUSE of them. The women and the quilt camp guests who come to Elm Creek aren't exempt from any of life's pain, and hearing their stories will bring you comfort. They will become your friends, too. You won't always understand why a person behaves the way she does . . . just like in real life . . . but you learn that you don't always have to know everything to accept . . . and eventually just love them.
