Margaret Goes Modern

From the author of Birds in the Air, a touching, big-hearted collection of short stories about women whose lives revolve around family, friends and quilt-making. “This collection presents the cozy comfort of characters we quilters easily recognize and relate to, but goes far deeper,” writes Marianne Fons. “I was moved to tears repeatedly. Dowell's five short narratives are about the joys and sorrows inherent in the human condition — but with quilts and quilting pleasantly surrounding them.” Meet Margaret, whose adventures in a new quilting group help her reconnect with her daughter as they grieve the slow loss of a loved one to Alzheimer’s. Then there’s Liz, a quilter seeking her own tribe in a neighborhood of perfect moms. But maybe she has more in common with her neighbors than she thinks. Sisters Amanda and Lucy, one dreamy, the other practical as the day is long, have financial woes that may force them to sell their beloved home. Can a quilt made with fabric from a mysterious aunt save the day? Lisa is still reckoning with the loss of her best friend. Diving headfirst into a new quilt project, she learns that sometimes a gift can be a first step toward healing. Melissa Bennett is sensible, smart and skeptical of marriage. A husband sounds nice, but with all the books and quilts in her life, where would she put him? Frances O’Roark Dowell is the critically-acclaimed author of more than twenty “beloved books for tweens and teenagers” (New York Times Sunday Book Review). In 2016, she founded a small publishing company dedicated to telling the stories of women who quilt. Join her online at QuiltFiction.com.
