Praise for Jennifer’s Books
“Impeccably researched…Each of the five main characters is brought to life in stunning detail.”
—Publisher’s Weekly BEA Daily
Jennifer Chiaverini's first novel is a heartwarming story of relationships that, like pieces of a quilt, can be connected with discord or with harmony. You'll discover friendship here, and you'll learn a thing or two about quilting, too.
— Sandra Dallas, author of THE PERSIAN PICKLE CLUB
