Loved this Book!!!!

I just finished Alice's Tulips and I wish I had the sequel here to pick up next. This book is written in letters to Alice's sister that are so interesting and easy to read. Alice lives with her mother-in-law on the family farm while her husband is fighting for the Union in the Civil War. Their life is a constant struggle and is complicated by a murder. How these women survive hard times on the farm and gossip in town makes me glad to live in the 21st century. History of quilts is an added bonus added to the book - wish I had the patience to quilt, but I'm saving to purchase one soon!

Good but not great

This book was written like letters received from a family member in the civil war. It took me half way through the book to get into the story. The story line did not pick up until the end. Sandra dallas has written better books than this one.

    Only one step above a trashy novel.

    What a disappointment! Sandra Dallas has obviously hijacked the memorable scenes from Gone With the Wind--Scarlett dancing at the Atlanta Hospital Fundraiser Ball to raise money for the troops, Melanie standing steadfastly at her side after Scarlett acted scandulously with Ashley, Melanie spotting the ragged Ashley trudging homeward as she does the washing in the yard at Tara, mixed with stock characters like the gossipy busybody old ladies--there is nothing new about this novel except the sexual references. Yes, women may have thought about sex, but they did not talk about it, much less write about it when letters were quite often shared with the whole family. Dallas has done research on quilting and colloquial language, and her writing itself is not bad, but the premise for her story is not original and the characters are not believable. Skip this one--there are lots better available!
