Publisher's Summary

Set in a picturesque Maine beach town, best-selling author Holly Chamberlin's heartwarming and insightful novel delves into the choices and changes faced by two families over the course of one eventful summer.
Everyone in Yorktide, Maine, knows 16-year-old Sarah Bauer. She's a good student and a dutiful daughter, as well as a beloved best friend to Cordelia Kane. So it's a surprise to all when sensible Sarah reveals that she is pregnant. Though shocked, Sarah's family is supportive. But while Sarah reconciles herself to a new and different future, the consequences ripple in all directions. Her father - a proud, old-time Mainer - tries to find more work to defray expenses. Her younger sister grapples with a secret she can't share. Cordelia feels abandoned, and Cordelia's mother faces the repercussions of a long-ago decision. As Sarah's mother, Cindy, frets about how she'll juggle childcare with her job at the local quilting store, she seizes on an idea: to band together and make a baby quilt. Piece by piece, a beautiful design emerges. And as it progresses, reflecting the hopes and cares of the women who create it, each will find strength in the friendship and love that sustains them, in hardship and in joy...

A great Read!

The Beach Quilt is a great book that looks at life from the perspective of alternate views. Each page, keeps you thinking about how the influences of one person's choices will affect the next person in more ways than one. A good read.

Didactic Tripe

I think my title sums it up. It has been a long time since I've heard such an awful book.
