It is rare that I really lash out at a book but The Fisherman's Quilt by Margaret Doyle is awful! It is a shame that a tree was killed to print these pages. It might redeem itself by being thrown into our wood stove for a little warmth tonight. I am only rating it one star which is too high really but wanted to add my review to GoodReads.

I got as far as the third chapter and decided it was time to bury this book for good. For me, it is not often that I do not finish a book even if I am not enjoy

The title caught me, and I had hoped to pass this one on to a quilting friend, but now I don't think so. Bleh. I think it reminded me too much of my first marriage.

American contemp....1980s Kodiak, AK....Fisherman's wife, struggles being alone and single parenting.
