In her 20s, Ivy Peterman escaped an abusive marriage with little more than her kids, and the clothes on her back. Quaint New Bern, Connecticut seemed an ideal place to make a fresh start. With a part-time job at the Cobbled Court Quilt Shop, and budding friendships, Ivy feels hopeful. But when a popular television show is taped at the quilt shop, Ivy's unwitting appearance alerts her ex to her whereabouts. Suddenly, Ivy is facing the fight of her life -- but this time, she has a sisterhood behind her -- folks as complex, strong and lasting as the quilts they stitch.
