[Read by Pam Ward and Lorna Raver]

Marie Bostwick weaves the unforgettable story of four very different women whose paths cross, changing their lives forever.

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 realize 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 storefront 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.

About the Author:

MARIE BOSTWICK was born and raised in the Northwest. She and her family have moved a score of times, living in eight U.S. states and two Mexican cities, and collecting a vast and cherished array of friends and experiences. She has three handsome sons and now lives with her husband in Connecticut, where she writes, reads, quilts, and is active in her local church.

Review:

''Bostwick makes a seamless transition from historical fiction to the contemporary scene in this buoyant novel about the value of friendship among women . . . Bostwick's polished style and command of plot make this story of bonding and sisterhood a tantalizing book club contender.'' --Publishers Weekly

''Bostwick succeeds admirably in this departure from historical fiction . . . This is a pleasant story of friendship, with a message of starting over despite the odds. It will remind readers of Debbie Macomber's popular The Shop on Blossom Street. The first in Bostwick's 'Cobbled Court' series, this comforting book is highly recommended.'' --Library Journal

''Upon relocating to New Bern, Connecticut, Texas divorcee Evelyn Dixon opens up a quilt shop, bonding with three women who show up for her class. In this first entry in her 'Cobbled Court' series, New York Times bestselling author Bostwick deals frankly and realistically with breast cancer, from its detection to feelings of fear and loss to the struggle for recovery. (Audiobook) Narrators Pam Ward and Lorna Raver alternate chapters, fully inhabiting their respective characters. A strong series starter; highly recommended for all.'' --Library Journal (starred audio review)
