I particularly enjoyed this story from Carolyn Brown. It kept me intrigued as to what was in The Hope Chest and the actual cousins were a nice mix. Loved the idea of the three of them sewing a quilt to reveal the contents of the chest. One thing that is always enjoyable from Carolyn Brown is that there are no graphic sex scenes - just nice love scenes.
Lots of interesting things to ponder about about life and ups and downs in one’s life. And how to overcome fear, anxiety, uncertainty and bad decisions by giving oneself time to heal and review and set new directions and goals.
This well researched book gives insight into BiPolar and the effects on children exposed to family member whose moods they cannot fathom .I then moved through to how that then effects the next generation and beyond It is all beautifully intertwined with the history and tradition of American quilt making Recommend it especially in these post Covid days
This is a gentle story of rural small town american life.Very much a fantasy and unrealistic including the characters and its portrayal of bipolar disorder. It is at least well written and passed the time and I did finish it but it felt out dated and very much written in an old fashioned style that irritated me.This author is not for me.
Probably the best Brown I've read so far. Three cousins inherit their grandmother's house with the stipulation that it can't be sold and that they must finish a quilt that she had started. Over quilting they learn to deal with the issues in their past and learn the secrets their grandmother had kept hidden. Enjoyable.
Family stories are my favourite and this is one of the best. Three cousins working on a quilt left to them by their late grandmother and finding their own paradise in the process. Brilliant and beautiful, highly recommended.
