I like that it was written in the Golden Age of detective fiction - the age of Sayers and Christie - and that it takes place at a University. The characters were well thought out, all the clues were there, but I found it challenging to figure out whodunnit.
I liked the detective.
Beautiful voice and phrasing, excellent characterizations
It wasn't that kind of story
Escapism at its best!
yes, the family dynamics intrigued me, the historical setting - in reflection back on how one of the heroines arrived at where she is today, were well described and believeable. The quilting as the venue for bringing this all out as well as the relationships young and old, were interesting.
The change in one of the heroines from isolated to more participatory in her own life
It was heartbreaking to hear, but the story about how her husband died and the way her family was torn apart in their grief
cry, definitely cry
