The best-selling author of Alice’s Tulips and other popular novels, Sandra Dallas exhibits a well-honed talent for evoking the past. In The Persian Pickle Club, Dallas transports listeners to 1930s Kansas, where a club of quilters welcomes a new member—and then must turn to each other for support when a startling secret comes to light.

"A colorful exploration of Depression-era Kansas and the meaning of friendship.”(New York Times Book Review)
The Persian Pickle Club was the first book I read by Sandra Dallas & I was instantly hooked. This (or any book by Sandra Dallas) is a quick and comfortable read. I love how she weaves small, day to day, things from the time setting into her work. There are some really great references to the Depression in PPC and how it affected everyday people. This book is about a quilting group, but you don't have to be a quilter to enjoy it. I loaned it to my mother and she read the book practically in one sitting since she was so drawn into the story. The characters are well written, historically accurate, and fun to read. Having given several copies of this book away as gifts I can heartily say that I recommend it as well as all of her other books.
I have read the book before and I enjoyed listening to it this time.
How loyal the members of the Persian Pickle Club are to one another. I love how they kept confidences.
Where the Road to Californi' quilt is left for Queenie and the final scene.
Loved the book
Protective Loyal Friendship
It reminds me of a very mild version of
Her voice has a touch of antiquity to it without sounding old, being that the narrator was a young woman in the 1930s.
The edge of my seat came when the narrator and Rita were confronted on the road.
Great story to listen to while doing handwork. It makes the time fly by while working. I found myself smiling at the tight friendship.
