Their class ends up attracting six unique people, each with their own set of problems. For some it is physical ailments and for others it is financial or emotional baggage. So, not only are these individuals learning to quilt—they’re also sorting through complex thoughts and emotions.
Emma and Lamar are very likable characters who have witty responses and genuine human response. Emma is a nurturing character who helps to guide her quilting students through murky waters. She is a source of godly wisdom and I would have liked to have connected with her on a deeper level. The frequent point-of-view switch kept me from bonding with her as much as I’d have liked.
Overall, the story is okay. I’ve read worse and I have read better. It was a pretty quick read but it was not one of Brunstetter’s best works.
