it was ok
Read in November, 2007

** spoiler alert ** The novel was easy to read -- but I found that the storylines weren't really fleshed out as much as I would have liked it to be.

Still, the way the story is told mirrors a key element of the story itself, which I found to be a unique, rather charming idea. Sarah, the main character, is learning to quilt — and boy did I learn a lot more about quilting through reading this novel! As Sarah painstakingly pieces together scraps of fabric in contrasting hues, her instructor, a sour old recluse named Sylvia, shares vignettes from her past. Then, as Sarah begins stitching her blocks together to create a beautiful whole, Sylvia resolves to put away her hurt and anger and open her heart again to her home and family — making her whole again, too.
