Descriere

New York Times bestselling author Marie Bostwick welcomes listeners back to picturesque New Bern, Connecticut-a perfect place for a woman whose marriage is in turmoil to discover a new pattern for living.…

Twice in her life, college counselor Gayla Oliver fell in love at first sight. The first time was with Brian-a lean, longhaired, British bass player. Marriage followed quickly, then twins, and gradually their bohemian lifestyle gave way to busy careers in New York. Gayla's second love affair is with New Bern, Connecticut. Like Brian, the laid back town is charming without trying too hard. It's the ideal place to buy a second home and reignite the spark in their twenty-six year marriage. Not that Gayla is worried. At least, not until she finds a discarded memo in which Brian admits to a past affair and suggests an amicable divorce.

Devastated, Gayla flees to New Bern. Though Brian insists he's since recommitted to his family, Gayla's feelings of betrayal may go too deep for forgiveness. Besides, her solo sabbatical is a chance to explore the creative impulses she sidelined long ago-quilting, gardening, and striking up new friendships with the women of the Cobbled Court circle-particularly Ivy, a single mother confronting fresh starts and past hurts of her own. With all of their support, Gayla just might find the courage to look ahead, decide which fragments of her old life she wants to keep, which are beyond repair-and how to knot the fraying ends until a bold new design reveals itself.…

  • (3/5)
    Fairly well-written women's fiction, focusing on two women supported by a group of others who revolve around a quilt shop in New Bern, Connecticut. Gayla escapes to her New Bern cottage when she discovers that her husband has had an affair and is unhappy in their marriage. Ivy has already made a new life for herself in New Bern, after running away from an abusive husband. Raising two children by herself and working in the quilt shop, she also helps other abused women obtain work experience but finds her own future limited by the lack of a college degree which will take too much time and money to complete and by her abusive husband. Gayla commits to exploring new things such as gardening and the other women join the challenge, each of them selecting something they've always wanted to do but never have. A handful of religious elements are not overbearing and fit with the story and characters. Overall, a gentle story of women's issues and the value of supportive friends.
