Confessions from the Quilting Circle is the story of women from one family, the secrets that burden them, the heartbreak they hide and how they find their way out of it all.

When three sisters find themselves in Bear Creek, mourning the loss of a mother and grandmother, they set about piecing a quilt from fabric in the Dowell house attic. Along with the fabric are some old diaries that will take each of them back to the distant past and link to their stories now.

Avery, married to a local surgeon with two children, the perfect mother and wife, totally involved in all things community. Hannah the violinist hoping for a big role in her orchestra and Lacey returning back to Bear Creek after tough times took her away. As well their mother Mary who always has felt “less than” because her mother left and went away when she was young.

As secrets are revealed, things shared and changes made the four women find a new way and new paths that will surely lead to greater happiness. And as they do so the quilt is finished.

I enjoyed the story, it’s heartwarming, although I felt the theme and messages in the book were a little labored, as a reader I prefer to find them by reading between the lines.

She feels the epic trek she takes several times a day from her office to her coffee maker is a true example of her pioneer spirit.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a place to meet up and share what you have been, and are about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organise yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment and er… add to your groaning TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started on J Kaye’s blog and then was hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn here at The Book Date.
Jen Vincent, Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee of Unleashing Readers decided to give It’s Monday! a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels or anything in those genres – join them.

Hope you are all doing well. Feeling a little colder here. I went to the library recently to find they had updated their returns and issues machines. All so modern. Put all the books together under the scanner and all issued together. I wonder if they will ever work out how to float the books to the exact spot on the shelf all by themselves!
