as a quilter/sewer, this really touched my heart about the reason for the quilt (in the story)
Stiches of Prayer
sigh, wish more books/stories about sewing were available - guess I'll have to write my own
The narration to this story was very good, but I found myself getting lost with the characters. It seems the story line (and I realize it was written quite a few years ago) is long. After the first half, I've lost interest, as the wording could be better. But then again, it was written quite a few years ago.
This story follows a delicate friendship of two Jewish lads, David & Ruven, their fathers and their different Jewish faiths (one Hassidic, the other not). There are few characters to keep up with but the last chapter is so moving, about understanding your children, not necessarily liking it, but loving them. I wish I would have read this years ago, perhaps my own angst with my children would not have been so dividing.
for medieval stories, and POTE had my attention from start to finish. Again, a little bit more "happily ever after" and good things to the characters would not hurt, you just get tired of disappointments, but nonetheless an excellent read
I found some of the characters long and overdrawn with KF's WWI trilogy. I'm a tad disappointed that the American and Marines of WWI were not mentioned in the fighting scenes as they did make a huge contribution (but that's my take). I want to see Ken write a little bit more 'happily ever after' to his story lines. The disappointments in his books tend to be exhausting. Good listen, tho!
I like that the narration went from female to male voice, made it easier to follow. Not a great story line for adventure, but surely one for love and devotion.
