    "Good Story"

    The story is good, only drawback is that it was recorded from a cassette and it states to turn the cassette over. Otherwise, good Christmas story.

    "An original holiday story with meaty content"

    Whether you're following this series or this group of characters is new to you, you will find them pesenting a holday story well worth hearing! So many holiday stories are predictable, honey-sweet stories that don't challenge the listener. The characters in the series have become old friends over time, but whether you're new to the series or not, you won't be sorry if you choose this story for the holidays. At first, I wasn't sure that I could listen to Christina Moore as the narrator, but I've found that she's become the perfect voice for characters that I've grown to love. I am not a quilter and thought the subject matter might be boring, but I was wrong! I learned about history while treating myself to a 'clean' and 'uplifting story' that was meaty in content and very different than the usual holiday story line. It was wonderful to be able to play this book in the presence of children and friends without needing to apologize for curse words or x-rated content. If you choose this book, you'll have a rich story with historic content that you will find enriching to your modern holiday. Sometimes, we grow tired of 'so many sweets' at the holidays and we find ourselves craving some calories with nutritional content - you'll find that in this story!

    "Beautiful story-lots of threads."

    I live to sew and sew to live. I love being able to listen to these wonderful stories of women lives, friendships and challenges while I'm sewing. You really don't need to know how to sew or quilt to appreciate thesae stories. I have also listened while driving and not wanted to get out of the car after an entire day of driving.

    "nice light christmas story"

    I enjoyed this light christmas book about generations working on an unfinished quilt. It was light, pleasant, with a nice Christmas ring to it. An easy festive listen.

    "I finished the book wanting less"

    This book was a disappointment. It did nothing to progress the Silvia Compson story. Silvia appears even more bitter and unlikeable than in earlier novels. While one of the plot lines was intended to provide background into her sisters life and motivation, this reader was still left with an unflattering picture of Claudia, and her relationship with Sylvia.

    The book was a reprise of various plots in other books in the series and lacked the historical references other books in the series bring.
    I finished the book wanting less.
