The families hope to set up a store and a sewing business, while one cousin has been hired as the community's new teacher. Quilts- their beauty, comfort, and necessity play strong roles in this first installment of the women's tale. What transpires in the volume covers just a few weeks in chronological time, but offers enough action and unresolved story line that readers should be interested in future books.
Those who know Jodi Barrows from their own quilting interests I am sure will be drawn to sampling her fiction.
I received a copy of Threads of Change from the publisher for review purposes. All opinions are mine. Check out Barrows' website to learn more about the book and her quilting techniques. If you follow this link to River North's site, you will find an insightful interview with Jodi Barrows in which she shares that this book series, based on pioneer women in her family, has taught her to be gentler, kinder, and more caring.
