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.

Handmade, With Hatred

Would you consider the audio edition of Stitches in Time to be better than the print version?

Honestly, no. The print version is a wonderful book which you can read without distractions. I found that this narrator often made character choices that differed with my vision of the characters so occasionally I found myself taken out of the story.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

It's a great story with just enough supernatural creepiness and dashes of romance and humor.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

It matched the pace well, I just had a problem with some of the voices used by the narrator.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, but it definitely kept me interested.

Really laughable

Wish I would've turn this book in right away. The performance of the reader was excellent she was the main reason I picked it, because she is always so good. The story was laughably stupid trite and 100% predictable. Will not be reading anything again by Barbara Michael's

GIVE IT A PASS

I LIKE BARBARA MICHAELS AND THIS WAS THE FIRST ONE I LISTENED TO ON AUDIO. WELL, TRIED TO LISTEN. JUST COULD NOT HANDLE THE WAY BARBARA ROSENBLAT, USUALLY A RELIABLE READER, MUTILLATED THE SCRIPT. A SCRIPT THAT PROBABLY WORKS BETTER IN PRINT SO YOU CAN PAGE BACK AND RECALL WHO IS WHO, AND WHAT EXACTLY IS GOING ON.

IF I WANTED TO SEE A THEATRE PIECE, I WOULD GO TO THE THEATRE. IT REALLY IS NOT DIFFICULT TO READ A BOOK IN A PERSON'S NORMAL VOICE SO THE CONTEXT OF THE BOOK CAN BE UNDERSTOOD. YET OVER AND OVER WANNABE ACTORS ARE RIPPING APART DIALOGUE AND DESCRIPTION BECAUSE OF SOME MISGUIDED BELIEF THAT MELODRAMA EQUALS NARRATING A BOOK. I CAN'T STAND IT. I ESPECIALLY CAN'T STAND REALLY BAD ACCENTS. OR WHISPERS AND THEN ANGRY YELLING AND SCREAMING! PLEASE, I WANT TO HOUSECLEAN WHILE I LISTEN. I DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO GO BACK TO THE PLAYER AND REWIND, PLAY A SECTION OF WHISPERED DIALOG AT FULL BLAST, TURN THE VOLUME TO NORMAL AND THEN HAVE TO GO AND READJUST IT WHEN A TORRID SCENE OF ANGER BLASTS THE EARDRUMS. SHOULD NOT THE TECHNICAL PRODUCER OR AUDIO PUBLISHER CUE THE READER THAT THIS IS TOTALLY LOUSY AUDIO? IT'S A BIG TURN OFF TO THE BOOK AND NARRATOR. IT GOT SO BAD I JUST GAVE UP. I HAD NOTHING TO MOTIVATE ME TO CONTINUE.

I AM RE-READING IN LARGE PRINT FOR THE UMPTEENTH TIME BARBARA MICHAELS' NOVEL AMMIE COME HOME--A LOVELY READ, EACH AND EVERY TIME. TOO BAD "STITCHES IN TIME" DOESN'T COME UP TO THE EARLIER NOVEL'S STANDARDS. WILL PROBABLY RETURN IT.
