A THREAD SO THIN
Rating: 4 Cups
Liza Burgess is an art student and a quilter. She is very talented at both and is pretty happy with her life right now. When not in school she lives with her aunt and she has a wonderful boyfriend.
Evelyn Dixon owns a quilting shop. She is divorced with one son and has a good relationship with Charlie, a chef. She is worried about her elderly mother living alone in Wisconsin and her son’s marital plans despite her love for both.
Marriage is a very serious topic, especially when one has not had any experience with a happy union. Garrett is confident that he and Liza will be a success story, but Liza is apprehensive, having had a much less settled life than Garrett. Having decided to get married, the wedding plans start to spiral out of control. Families are wonderful, but complicated, and Liza relies on her quilting circle for support.
Ms. Bostwick writes a wonderful story about love, marriage, and family through the perspectives of Liza, the bride, her future mother in law, and good friend Evelyn. It is nice to read about things seen through a twenty something’s eyes as well as someone from the previous generation. The characters go through the trials and tribulations typical of all of us; weddings, caring for elderly relatives, relationships, family dynamics, school, work, and life in general. The residents of New Bern will seem like old friends by the end of the novel. This author has a gift for characterization second to none.
