More social history than quilting
- patrish "I read a lot, oftentimes professionally, oftentimes not."
Great Historical Fiction.
How well the author intertwined a quilt, a quilting circle and their soldier husbands perspectives into a story with no ends left untied.
Gerta was my favorite. She was most interesting being the scandal of the whole circle and the town yet compassionate to those fighting for the country. And she was a paid employee; unheard of in those times.
I haven't heard her before but I thought she did an excellent job with characters whether they were male or possessing an accent.
Gerta. Seems she'd have a plethora of stories to share.
