Threading the Needle (Kobo eBook)
“An inspirational story of forgiveness and restoration” in the quilting circle series from the New York Times bestselling author of A Thread So Thin (Fresh Fiction).
The economic downturn has hit New Bern, Connecticut, and Tessa Woodruff’s herbal apothecary shop, For the Love of Lavender, is suffering. So is her once-happy thirty-four-year marriage. To relieve the strain, Tessa signs up for a quilting class at the Cobbled Court Quilt Shop, and to her surprise, rediscovers the power of sisterhood—along with the childhood friend she thought she’d lost forever . . .
When her husband is convicted of running a Ponzi scheme, Madelyn Beecher is left with nothing but her late grandmother’s cottage in New Bern. Unfortunately, the cottage is in terrible shape, and Madelyn’s only hope is to transform it into an inn. But to succeed, she’ll need the help of her fellow quilters, including the one friend she never thought she’d see again—or forgive. Now Madelyn and Tessa will have to relive old memories, forge new ones, and realize it’s possible to start over, one stitch at a time—as long as you’re surrounded by friends . . .
