Read full description of the books:
This was such a sweet and great book that took a turn I didn't see coming. First of all, Sandra Dallas did an impeccable job of setting the mood. This takes place in the USA in the 1930s, it is hot, the crops are destroyed because of the heat and people try to survive on small jobs and kindness to each other. The Persian Pickle Job is our focal point of interest and we are rather quickly introduced to all of the women in this quilting club.
However, our main focus is Queenie and Rita who are the youngest members of the club. I very much enjoyed following these two women, and I was surprised when halfway through the book, the story took a turn and I started forming a lot of questions in my head. I felt like I was losing grip of both the story and the characters' development and I didn't like it.
BUT the ending wrapped up so beautifully that everything made sense, and the ending surprised me as well as put a big smile to my face. All of my questions were answered, and I understood why Sandra Dallas had taken the story in the direction she did. This book is so cozy and nice to read, but that's not all there is to it. You must read it for yourself to see what I mean, and stick to the end because that's when all of your questions - plotwise and characterwise - will be answered.
...and yes, I read this in a day :)
