Did I enjoy this book: I did enjoy this book. The first half was a bit slow and confusing. By the time I hit the halfway point, I was hooked and I didn’t want to stop reading this book.
As I said, the first half of The Forgotten Seamstress was a bit slow. I thought it would take a long time to get through this book. I guess I really just didn’t get what was going on. We are introduced to a character who is being interviewed by another character. We were reading a transcript of the cassette tape of the interview that occurred in 1970. Then, we are introduced to another character in the present-ish day who seemingly doesn’t have anything to do with the previous person. I was rather confused through this part. It was interesting but confusing.
However, by the halfway point, it all clicked. Did I see where the story was going? Yes. Did I guess the end? Yes, I did (but I’ve always been fairly good at that). It still made me happy. It still made me want to keep reading. I couldn’t put this book down during the last half. Once I got where it was going, I really started to enjoy the read. It was intriguing and had me wondering the whole time. Who was telling the truth? Could the truth really be what it was? Was the crazy lady sane? What was the story behind the quilt? I wanted to know what the truth was.
This was a good, surprising read.
Would I recommend it: I would recommend this book.
Will I read it again: I may.
