This is a story that I really enjoyed reading. It begins with Caroline unearthing an old quilt that has been in her family for many years and becoming fascinated by its origins - who made it, when and why. The story then alternates between Caroline's search and that of Maria, who made the quilt over many years of her lifetime. Maria's story is heart breaking and quite shocking at times, especially when her secret emerges. Her part of the story is told mainly in a series of taped interviews, and they felt so realistic that I really got right inside Maria's head and empathised with her immediately.

As you are reading the story you are always one step ahead of Caroline in her search - it is fairly obvious to the reader just what the link between Caroline, Maria and the quilt is, but it is still an extremely enjoyable read. Because of this, it is quite a hard book to review without giving away the storyline and the "hook" of the story. I think it much better just to read the story blind and let it all unfold before you.

The books moves at a very good pace, and I particularly enjoyed the way the author "stitched" all the pieces of the fabric of the story into her quilt. A highly recommended read. Many thanks to the publisher for an ARC of this book.

We heard this in our house - it was like someone shutting a metal shutter type door, the way it would rumble but it seemed to go on and on and on.

This was just on the TV, and I sat and watched it for an hour and all the time I was trying to remember just how many mules were in the film title, but was just too damn lazy to either pick up the remote or google it.

We get this show in the UK now on one of the satellite channels and I am finding it strangely addictive, for the sole reason that I keep hoping someone will punch Brandon's lights out.
