Publisher's Summary

Washington State, 1893

When Lily Lexington Bremmer arrives in Kamola with her young son, she’s reluctant to join the social center of her new community, the quilting circle, but the friendly ladies pull her in. She begins piecing a sunshine and shadows quilt because it mirrors her life. She has a secret that lurks in the shadows and hopes it doesn’t come out into the light. Dark places in her past are best forgotten, but her new life is full of sunshine. Will her secrets cast shadows on her bright future?

Widower Edric Hammond and his father are doing their best to raise his two young daughters. He meets Lily and her son when they arrive in town and helps her find a job and a place to live. Lily resists Edric’s charms at first, but finds herself falling in love with this kind, gentle man and his two darling daughters. Lily has stolen his heart with her first warm smile, but he’s cautious about bringing another woman into his girls’ lives due to the harshness of their own mother.

Can Edric forgive Lily her past to take hold of a promising chance at love?

Great Book

This was my first exposure to Mary Davis. I absolutely loved this book! The writing was well done, the characters were well developed, and the narration was absolutely amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the narrator as she did a great job with reading, inflection, and various accents and voices. I applaud Ms. Davis for her excellence in writing. Definitely recommend both the audible and written copy of this book.

A Sweet clean 1890's American West Romance

" The Widow's Plight" {The Quilting Circle, Book 1} By: Mary Davis; Narrated by: Pamela Gregory
I truly enjoyed my time with Lily as she finds her way through the "DARK" fearfulness that encompassed her life, and into the "LIGHT" that can fill one's life with hope and purpose. Of course, I loved Edric, a truly sweet special person, someone most all of us would love to have in our lives. It is an 1890's Western American sweet Romance with a mix of suspense and a dash of humor. Well, maybe the humor was my warped sense of humor, but it is a light easy long read.
I appreciated the vocabulary and the pace of the story, and, really liked the voice(s) of the narrator Pamela Gregory.

note: I received a download code from the author with the hope I would write a review; thus this honest review.

The Widow's Plight

I enjoyed listening to this book. Pamela Gregory does a fantastic job narrating this story. Mary Davis has created a wonderful town in Kamola. I look forward to revisiting the town to read more about the residents.

Wonderful story

I really enjoyed this book, it moved along without a dull moment.
There were quite a lot suspenseful moments as well. I really enjoyed the narrator, she was really good at telling the story even through the suspenseful parts. This was a Christian and clean audio book.
