Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Marie Bostwick comes a beautiful novel of sisterhood lost and found - and of the ways we create the rich tapestries that encompass the past and the future.

The economic downturn has hit New Bern, Connecticut, and Tessa Woodruff’s herbal apothecary shop, For the Love of Lavender, is suffering. So is her once-happy 34-year marriage to Lee. They’d given up everything to come back to New Bern from Boston and start their business, but now they’re wondering if they made the right decision. To relieve the strain, Tessa signs up for a quilting class at the Cobbled Court Quilt Shop and, to her surprise, rediscovers the power of sisterhood - along with the childhood friend she thought she’d lost forever.

Madelyn Beecher left New Bern 20 years ago and never looked back. But when her husband is convicted of running a Ponzi scheme and she’s left with nothing but her late grandmother’s cottage, she is forced to return to the town she fled. Unfortunately, the cottage is in terrible shape. Madelyn’s only hope is to transform it into an inn. But to succeed, she’ll need the help of her fellow quilters, including the one friend she never thought she’d see again - or forgive. Now Madelyn and Tessa will have to relive old memories, forge new ones, and realize it’s possible to start over, one stitch at a time - as long as you’re surrounded by friends.

Marie Bostwick was born and raised in the Northwest. She and her family have moved a score of times, living in eight U.S. states and two Mexican cities, and collecting a vast and cherished array of friends and experiences. She has three handsome sons and now lives with her husband in Connecticut, where she writes, reads, quilts, and is active in her local church.

    "Just wonderful!!!"

    This is a great series. It is clean, easy listening without being boring, if fact there are many lesson reminders that you were taught as a young person.

    I recommend this series highly, just make sure you start with the first book and continue to the last.

    I am awaiting more in this series, or another series from Marie.

    "Good continuation from previous stories"

    I felt that book #4 was a good story but that it did not necessarily "connect" to the 3 previous ones. It just felt disconnected with the characters OR maybe there just was not enough of the past characters in this story.

    "Great readers, story slightly disappointing"

    I found the story a little preachy and predictable. If you like stories about the rich who have fallen on hard times and middle age people still love-shy this book is for you.

    "An Absolute Delight"

    This audio book, like the previous books In the series, was an absolutely delightful listen! The only bad part of this work is that it made me long to be a part of a circle of women like the one depicted in the story. Thankfully the story is written in such a way that makes you feel as though you ARE a part of this sisterhood all the way to the last sentence!

    "Just as great as the others in the series"

    I loved this book just as much as the others in the series. Since it wasn't in the same line as the others, following the original ladies, I wasn't sure if I was going to like it at first. But I was happy to see that everyone is still involved in this book and ties in nicely. Narration was good as well.

    "Not as "personal " as previous books"

    Though I liked it, I didn't enjoy it as the previous ones. Narrator change was not
    Good. More of a negative/melancholy manner of speaking. Made personalities
    More dull & difficult to tell the difference between them.

    "Just quilty enough!"

    Marie writes a great story which favors quilters and small business challenges. Add in the trials and histories of women and it keeps me interested!
