Stitches in Time | [Barbara Michaels]

Stitches in Time

When an antique bridal quilt appears under mysterious circumstances at the vintage clothing shop where Rachel Grant works, she is fascinated. She has never been able to resist handmade textiles from the past, for she believes that through the ages, women wove protective magic into their fabrics in order to mark the important events of their lives: birth, marriage, and death.

Publisher's Summary

When an antique bridal quilt appears under mysterious circumstances at the vintage clothing shop where Rachel Grant works, she is fascinated. She has never been able to resist handmade textiles from the past, for she believes that through the ages, women wove protective magic into their fabrics in order to mark the important events of their lives: birth, marriage, and death.

But there is more than good in the quilt's magic power. Day by day Rachel sees and feels the power growing, as she senses the quilt influencing her thoughts and actions. Much as Rachel's logical mind longs to deny the supernatural, the aura of evil coming from the quilt is terrifyingly real, and it seems to carry a sinister legacy into the lives of the people Rachel loves.

    "Why abridged when Books on Tape has it unabridged"

    I listened to this audio book years ago and fell in love with the story and Barbara Rosenblatt's narration. I was so excited to see it available at Audible.com that I downloaded it without realizing it is the abridged version. So much is lost in this abridgement. The story is wonderful and should be available in its entirety.

    "A neat knot of a mystery"

    Barbara Michaels excels at the romantic ghost story and in this book she performs to expectation. A graduate student; a handsome man; a beautiful, but disturbing quilt; and a vengeful ghost all tie together into a diverting and enchanting narrative.

    A former accountant and staff trainer. Now retired, I enjoy knitting and weaving. I enjoy intelligent, insightful books with lead characters I respect. I deplore novels fille with gratuitous violence and depraved sexual behavior written to shock the reader.

    "Lame story narrated like a tv soap opera"

    I wish I hadn't spend extra $$ during a sale to download this disappointment. Choppy writing, rough scene changes, unbelievable changes in characters from chapter to chapter, the writing is bad. The narration was annoying - a phrase ion nearly every pareagraph uttered in dark sinister tones.

    "Cute but Predictable"

    Interesting little story. No surprises but it was a cute store.
