Marie Bostwick weaves the unforgettable story of four very different women whose paths cross, changing their lives forever . . .

It's a long way from Fort Worth, Texas, to New Bern, Connecticut, yet it only takes a day in the charming Yankee town to make Evelyn Dixon realize she's found her new home. The abrupt end of her marriage was Evelyn's wake-up call to get busy chasing her dream of opening a quilt shop. Finding a storefront is easy enough; starting a new life isn't. Little does Evelyn imagine it will bring a trio like Abigail Burgess, her niece Liza, and Margot Matthews through her door . . .

Troubled and angry after her mother's death, Liza threatens to embarrass her Aunt Abigail all over town unless she joins her for quilting classes. A victim of downsizing at the peak of her career, Margot hopes an event hosted by the quilt shop could be a great chance to network--and keep from dying of boredom . . .

As they stitch their unique creations, Evelyn, Abigail, Liza, and Margot form a sisterhood they never sought--but one that they'll be grateful for when the unexpected provides a poignant reminder of the single thread that binds us all . . .

Would recommend this to any woman who has faced marital and health crises, especially those who appreciate quilting. This is a story of pain, change and ultimate triumph. Excellent!

I quite enjoyed this first Cobbled Court Quilts novel. Each chapter focused on one of the characters, so we got to see from their perspectives, and we got to watch them meet, start tentative friendships, and come together to deal with various traumas and dramas in their lives. Everything seemed pretty well wrapped up at the end, yet I see that there are more books in this series. I'll be reserving the next one soon.

I really liked this book. Number of different characters all very likably flawed all of them grow through coming together as unlikely friends. They help each other and are there to listen and hear each others cares, concerns, and dreams. The fact they come together doing something very creative like a quilting circle is also very appealing to me! There is a little bit of a mystery to be solved in this story as well.
