Although they come from different ways of life, both Bonnie and Ruth are experiencing drastic changes. After discovering that her husband has lost all of their money and has left her broke, Bonnie Duke Cullman is abandoning her comfortable life in Atlanta to teach at a community college in rural Alabama. Ruth Elkin just lost her sewing job at the Cherished Lady factory, and now she must attend college classes to get back on track. The two women's lives become unexpectedly intertwined, and together they survive the ups and downs of small town life. Battle pens a novel full of conviction, courage, and a colorful cast of quirky, honest characters. Cristine McMurdo-Wallis' narration perfectly portrays the tenderness and strength of these women's friendships.More

Not the uplifting book I'd expected
The book just doesn't take off like I'd expected. After listening to many of the Elm Creek Quilting Books, I was expecting something similar. This is an entirely different type of book and just not what I wanted to listen to.
It wasn't really based on the characters' shared love of quilting as I'd expected.
The reader was fine.
I enjoyed the character, Ruth, and her challenge to become a teacher.
I don't think this is a bad book....just not a really good one.
