Six loose threads and an Amish widow come together when a woman loses her husband and decides to teach a quilting class to make a little extra money as to not feel like a burden to her family. The group of people couldn’t possibly be anymore opposite… but does God have a greater purpose for this group other than to learn how to quilt?
There is Star, birth name Beatrice, she hides behind a black hoodie and dreams of one day being a star. Star’s life at home is rough, and she is mistrustful of men in general. Then there is Paul Ramirez, a single Hispanic father who is newly widowed. Paul takes the quilting class hoping to learn how to finish the quilt his deceased wife started for their baby. Then there is Pam and Stuart, a couple who constantly bicker and are taking the quilting class as suggested by their couples counselor. Next there is Jan, a seemingly rough and tough biker who is on probation,and looking for something creative to do. Lastly, there is Ruby, a preacher’s wife who is having problems with her church and struggling with her faith in God.
This group originally came together to learn to quilt but they learn so much more… and their lives are changed further on, all because of this quilting class.
I wasn’t sure how good this book would be, but I was pleasantly surprised and read it rather quick. A lot of tear-jerker moments, and surprises along the way. I would recommend this book to a friend, and I give it four stars!
