Sandra Dallas tells a good story and this book is no exception. Don't worry about getting all the characters straight in the beginning. The whole story comes together and tells of strength and friendship in a quilting club in Harveyville, Kansas during the dry years in the '30s.

Enjoyed this little read so very much. The phrasing of these wonderful characters are enough to make one like this one. I laughed many times as I read through their conversations.

Just so you know it's about a murder and a women's quilting club during dust bowl years. Friendship among the women is a strong thread that holds the story together. The murder? Who did it? One is never certain but it doesn't seem to matter in this read. Why? You have to pick it up to discover for yourself. Somehow it all weaves together for an entertaining reading experience.

I figured out the "mystery" fairly quickly. But still it was a good quick get away from the world for a day read. I may pick up some more of her books for those times I need a super simple book to just get away.
