Description - A Single Thread by Marie Bostwick
It's a long way from Fort Worth, Texas, to New Bern, Connecticut, yet it only takes a day in the charming Yankee town to make Evelyn Dixon realise she's found her new home. The abrupt end of her marriage was Evelyn's wake-up call to get busy chasing her dream of opening a quilt shop. Finding a store front is easy enough; starting a new life isn't. Little does Evelyn imagine it will bring a trio like Abigail Burgess, her niece Liza, and Margot Matthews through her door.Troubled and angry after her mother's death, Liza threatens to embarrass her Aunt Abigail all over town unless she joins her for quilting classes. A victim of downsizing at the peak of her career, Margot hopes an event hosted by the quilt shop could be a great chance to network - and keep from dying of boredom...As they stitch their unique creations, Evelyn, Abigail, Liza, and Margot form a sisterhood they never sought - but one that they'll be grateful for when the unexpected provides a poignant reminder of the single thread that binds us all...

Book Review: Single Thread by Marie Bostwick - Reviewed by sudy01 (02 Aug 2011)
This book creates characters who become friends of the reader and gives enormous pleasure in the situations described.
Evelyn has struggled to come to terms with the end of her marriage and her forced lonely, single life. On a whim she travels to another state intending to have a break and reassess her life in order to make the necessary changes brought on by the sale of the family home. Instead she finds herself in a welcoming town embarking on the biggest adventure of her life.
Through her determination and hard work she manages to open a quilting shop and gather around her a terrific bunch of people who all have their own issues but who manage to pull together to help the shop, Evelyn and themselves. They are an unlikely collection of characters who come together to form a lifelong friendship strengthened through adversity.
This book is good for the soul - it provides a safe, warm, loving community which is a fantastic place to spend some time.
