I love, love, loved this book! If you haven't discovered the "Cobbled Court Quilt Shop" in New Bern, and its delightful Quilt Circle of personalities, I strongly suggest you do. You're missing out on something special. Besides meeting or reacquainting yourself with Evelyn, Virginia, Abigail, Margot and Ivy, to name a few, you will follow Tessa and Madelyn on their journey from childhood to adult, through marriage and divorce, complete with a large helping of entrepreneurship, spiced with romance and sisterhood that will tug at your heartstrings. Madelyn and Tessa rediscover the value of undying friendship through good times and bad as they struggle through scandal, financial hardship and the dissolution of dreams. I'm betting their courage and love will stir your emotions as it did mine and make you sad when you reach the final chapter and have you wishing for more!

This book.had the potential to be really good but it dragged at the end and was left unfinished. It was very frustrating after investing so much time reading it.

This series got me interested in quilting. In fact, I am working on my first quilt project, a lap quilt. I'm also going to quilt a western style cal king bedspread since I couldn't find anything I liked. I did have to buy a How To Do Quilting Book in order to know what to do. So far, I am enjoying it.

Review by Valerie: For those of you that read like to read books about lifelong friendships, this one's a must! In the newest book from the series, two friends, Madelyn and Tessa, tell their stories from childhood into adulthood in alternating chapters. While Tessa has what seems like the normal family life a child should have, Madelyn does not. After years of being inseparable, their friendship splinters and ends as boys and growing up enter the picture. Now, years later, both women find themselves returning to the town of their childhood where nothing has changed, yet everything has changed. Madelyn is flat out broke and Tessa is struggling to make a go of her herbal products store. The first time they see each other is not a happy occasion, for either of them. New Bern is a small town with gossips and eyes and ears everywhere. Both women have to deal with their memories from growing up as well as the women they are today. When Tessa finally reaches out to Madelyn in an extraordinary gesture of friendship, she has no idea how to respond. She's a user and she expects to be used in return. She can't help but wonder what her former friend is up to. When a local handyman offers to help her fix up her cottage, again, she wonders what he's up to. Somewhere along the way, Madelyn figures out that it's her life that needs changing and not the people around her. How she and Tessa rekindle their friendship and manage to make a life where they both fit in was a joy to read. Ms. Bostwick's writing style is smooth and flows page after page...just like someone is reading to you. For quilters, this book will be a joy! There are many references to quilting, as well as patterns just for her readers on her website! Quote: "Maybe the New Bern of the 1960s wasn't all that different from the New Bern of today, populated with the good and the not-so-good. In the end, maybe it all comes down to where you choose to look and what team you decide to play for." Page 299

Madelyn Beecher has been giving the good life for many years, spending willy-nilly and never wondering where a penny is coming from. Hers is a marriage of convenience, as she is the trophy wife, beautiful and able to make her way through upper society without a blip. She lacked knowledge and so was thought beautiful but dumb at one time but quickly remedied that by slowly reading through the dozen books her husband, Sterling Baron, insisted she read. All in all, Madelyn has overcome the horrible rejection she suffered as a young girl who was rejected by her best friend and the chaos she created through some unwise choices as a young woman before her wedding. But Madelyn's world has now, in the present, hit rock bottom, her husband indicted on fraud charges from the Ponzi scheme rip-offs he conducted that robbed hundreds of whatever money they had. In plain English, she's a pariah again but this time because of being the wife of a criminal hated by the many he duped! Having hocked her jewelry and everything else, Madelyn discovers an inheritance that she must redo, the home where she grew up and now hers with her grandmother's death. She is pretty useless in the beginning but quickly develops a set of skills she never realized she had. Her support in these endeavors is the loveliest part of this story. In town are Tessa and Lee Woodruff, Tessa being the gal who years ago crushed Madelyn with unexpected shunning. But now she's got her own problems. Tessa and Lee's world is crumbling financially as his business isn't enough to get by and Tessa's small store where she sells home-made herbals is failing. Stressed out, they begin arguing which grows worse when Madelyn returns to town and decides to set up a small bed and breakfast inn. To tell more would be a spoiler, but this reviewer assures every potential reader that this novel is one of the most touching stories read in a long time. It's so real it's almost tangible, showing the evolution from spiteful, small-mindedness to the compassionate, giving nature of fierce and caring characters. There are great segments on quilting that are the heart of this tale, piecing together appropriate old segments that yield a tapestry of love sure to warm the hardest of hearts! Absolutely delightful, Ms. Bostwick!

In this novel about faith, friendship and forgiveness, the characters are likeable and in depth. It reads like a magazine article about friends. I read this as a stand alone novel, however there are a few before it. I enjoyed that in the tradition of books like The Firday Night Knitting Club Series the women have a crafty hobby that brings them together, yet in this book I feel it was one of the first in the genre to include the male dynamic into the storyline. I enjoyed the book and have found a new author to follow.
