Overview

Stitches in Time by Barbara Michaels

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.

From Ammie, Come Home to Shattered Silk to Stitches in Time: these books represent the masterworks of the paranormal mysteries & the refined delights of humor blended with the best "women's studies". Years ago I read the lead in Ammie Come Home with its gentle yet terrifying exploration of ghost stories & quiet introdction to the concept of cultural anthropology. It would be literally decades before I stumbled across Shattered Silk a return to a shivery tradition that was NOT the paranormal book I expected. And therein is the delight I find in Ms Michaels' works.. I NEVER know from book to book whether I'm holding a traditional mystery or a paranormal delight. Each book must be explored & relished for itself even when it stands in a series of three. I cannot speak highly enough in praise of her work. She has introduced me to arts & sciences I never imagined exploring, all while delighting me with a tapestry of tales filled with humor, suspence and the best of all realities of wonder. She is never formulaic, you will never know whether the book in your hand is a mystery, a gothic romance or a horror novel.. she is mistress of all three. For me this particular trilogy is the best of the best, be welcome, be entertained and most of all be prepared to think outside the box.

I used to have a paperback copy of this book, and I read it over and over again until the book fell apart! I highly recommend this book because even though it keeps you on the edge of your seat,the characters make you laugh and feel more at home at the same time. This is a book I would cozy up by a fireplace with.

I was a little worried at first when getting this book. I was thinking what kind of gothic thriller could a quilt possibly give.....well....I was wrong! It's an awesome book from start to finish. Got to learn a little bit about quilts too.

I thought this book was very interesting. I enjoyed the lesson on vintage cloths and I enjoyed even more the lesson on sewing and stitching in history.

This book was the dumbest yet, and made absolutely no sense at all. I kept reading the book to see if it ever got any better, and it never did! The plot was weak, and didn't draw my attention at all.This book is definitely not worth the money!
