Product Description

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.

    Read from May 22 to August 23, 2012

    I don't know how I've managed to miss Marie Bostwick's books!!  Now that I've read the first book in her quilt shop series, I've become a huge fan.  The power of community, friendship, and courage is superbly exemplified in this story about Evelyn and her newfound life and friendships.  

    After a painful divorce, Evelyn left Texas and moved to Connecticut , where she gave all her funds and energy to try living her dream life.  Having her own quilt shop has been a dream she put on hold after becoming a wife and mother.  Now the pain of divorce has opened a door for her to truly take charge of her life.  But her dream is having many bumps in the road to success.  Refurbishing an old building is taking so much more time, money and energy than she's anticipated.  When she gets ill, she almost gives up hope of success or even survival.

    At the same time, other women in town are having their own problems.  Perfect, popular Abigail is finding that money really can't make for perfect happiness.  Her young niece, whom she's never met, is picked up for shoplifting and becomes Abigail's charge for the next thirteen months.  Never mind that they get along like oil and water, and are finding combining their lives is more than either one can bare.

    Through the difficult needs of these three woman and Margot, a women of great faith who definitely needs a job after losing her present one, a charming Irish restaurateur , and Abigail's life long  legal advisor, this story builds on the SINGLE THREAD of friendship.  

    Just as various scraps of materials can be color matched , styled and sewn together to create a beautiful quilt, friendships built on necessity, trust, faith, courage, and love can create bonds of friendships that are held together through hardships and successes!  I am definitely planning to read through the rest of the books in these new found treasures of quilt shop stories!

    I would like to counter the first review that claims this book contains inappropriate "unsafe" language...First of all, I don't know why a 13 year old would want to read a story about an older women with breast cancer...but since she did, I don't (for the life of me) remember ANYTHING inappropriate in Ms Bostwicks Cobble Court series...

    I can't give enough PRAISE to ALL of the books by this author. She doesn't claim that these books are CHRISTIAN books...they are inspirational...and REAL LIFE includes real people with real words and real feelings and real statements...The author has "kept it real" in her novels.

    PLEASE do not be deterred by review person number one for this most MARVELOUS story...and all the ones that follow.

    This was an excellent book about women bonding together in times of crisis. It went deeper than that, however, because it showed the bonding of community and how people come together to offer support to those they love. It was also about how each of us has our own story that makes us who we are and how that effects how we interact with others. This was a deep and meaningful book that left me wanting it to continue on and on. Yet at the same time, it was an easy read because I just didn't want to put it down. I highly recommend reading this book. I can hardly wait for the next book in the series.

    This book was fantastic-I wish I had once had the nerve to get into my car and drive til I knew where the next place to call home would be! I've always wanted to try my hand at quilting and if there was a quilt shop around here where I would feel able to fit in I'd be there in a minuteCan't wait for book 2 to come outEnjoy this book ladies and be sure to save time to KEEP reading it!
