The New Year's Quilt by Jennifer Chiaverini

Do you have fond memories of European agrarian traditions? Are your days occupied reliving your family relationships and those of your parents, grandparents, and siblings? Are you so old that your time is mostly occupied with recollections and reminiscences?

If you are at that quiet time in your life, you'll love The New Year's Quilt by Jennifer Chiaverini. The plot line (a conflict between an adult daughter and her elder father on his choice to remarry) takes up so little of the story, it can be completely ignored and just seen as an excuse to wax poetic on quilts, quilting, and life. A charming, sentimental volume.
