I enjoyed listening to this book
I found the story captivating (and unfortunately, entirely plausible). The writer wove many time periods into the tale without creating a convoluted mess. I also appreciated how the narrator gave distinct personalities to the 3 primary characters.

Enchanting work of art!
This was a beautifully written story spanning several generations, exploring cultural differences and obstacles. It imposed upon me the reality surrounding the affairs of the heart and all of those affected by decisions and actions made by powerful, influential people.
When I started it I found it a little difficult to get into because of the language difference with the strong English accents. After awhile I really enjoyed the variety of voice interpretations for the different characters.
I was immensely intrigued by the storyline relating to the patchwork quilt and totally captivated by the historical research and the steps that were taken to discover truths hidden in the fabric and stitches. I was convinced more than ever of the importance of labeling quilts and other works of art for accurate provenance. I was sad when the story ended.
