    If you loved A Single Thread . . . .

    This author writes exceptionally well about characters she brings to life. Like her first book in this series, it is a difficult book to put down.

    A must read for any woman quilter or not who ever had a bad relationship with a man!

    I really did not think that a "quilting" themed book would be such a great read.
    Please don't think you need to know a thing about sewing, or quilting to love this story or the others in the series.
    Quilting is a time honored way women came/come together to support each other. OK so nowadays it sounds sappy but I am only 28 & I can say that the simple stitches you sew together bind you closer than sisters. I had always sewn alone but these books inspired me to try a group, so I started one of my own.

    I have read this author before and I liked this book as well as her other books. She writes a good story that is very enjoyable! Give it a try.

    ENJOYABLE!

    I was looking for a book to read & stumbled across A Single Thread by Marie Bostwick. I enjoyed the book & as soon as I finished I bought A Thread of Truth. The first book flows nicely into the second one. You'll meet Evelyn, Margot, Abigail & Liza along with all the other characters. The women come from different walks of life, face their own struggles & form a lasting friendship. Both books are heartwarming-hard to put down. My suggestion is to get both books but read A Single Thread first.

    A wonderful story

    Ivy Peterman left an abusive marriage to insure her children six years old Bethany and eighteen months old Bobby are safe from their father Hodge. She relocated with her kids in historic New Bern, Connecticut hiding their destination from her raging husband back in Pennsylvania. At a shelter there, women's shelter philanthropist Abigail Burgess Wynne arranges with Cobbled Court Quilts owner Evelyn Dixon to hire her to work part-time at the shop.----------------

    However, her idyllic world crashes when a TV show Quilt Pink Day is filmed at the popular store. Her former spouse Hodge sees Ivy on TV and is coming to beat the snot out of his wife and make her and the kids go home with him. His anger is fueled by eighteen months of her not being his punching dummy. He may be a tough bully, but he is unprepared for the knitting sisterhood protecting his former frightened family and kicking him to the curb.---------------

    The second New Bern England quilters' tale series (see A Single Thread) is a wonderful story that looks at the impact of abuse on the victims as Marie Bostwick makes a case that it takes a community of caring people to stop the violence. Readers will enjoy learning how the knitting circle is doing especially Evelyn who battled breast cancer with the support of her friends. However, this is Ivy's saga as she chose flight twice before (from her stepfather and her spouse), but with the support of the Cobbled Court crew she chooses fight this time to the cheering of readers.-----------------
