A "gently" raised Southern Gal, loses her husband (his fault), loses her idenity (her fault) and struggles to become a real woman in todays' "New South". How she accomplishes not only this, but helps a large group of other woman who have been "displaced by progress" is a wonderful story. There was no sense of self-pity here, just a wonderful sense of a new life on the brink....I recommend this book to (and for) woman everywhere.

A story of strong Southern women and their struggle with finding new direction after being laid off, divorced, or let down. I found the growing and changing friendships delightful to watch unfold.

This is a great novel about making your life over after a setback. There isn't a lot of sewing in it, but it's very, very good.

When the lingerie factory in a small southern town shuts down, it throws many of its employees into financial crisis, and propels one recently-dirvocred socialite into a reluctant mentor position as they attempt to put their lives back together. Well written.

I picked this book because it had sewing circle in the title, and I belong to a sewing circle (quilting). However, it really was more about the main character who had a life changing divorce and found out how to stand on her own two feet. It was a quick read and a cute story.
