Confessions from the Quilting Circle: A Novel by Maisey Yates

(Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for providing me with a copy of this book!)

about book:

The Ashwood women don’t have much in common...except their ability to keep secrets.

When Lark Ashwood’s beloved grandmother dies, she and her sisters discover an unfinished quilt. Finishing it could be the reason Lark’s been looking for to stop running from the past, but is she ever going to be brave enough to share her biggest secret with the people she ought to be closest to?

Hannah can’t believe she’s back in Bear Creek, the tiny town she sacrificed everything to escape from. The plan? Help her sisters renovate her grandmother’s house and leave as fast as humanly possible. Until she comes face-to-face with a man from her past. But getting close to him again might mean confessing what really drove her away...

Stay-at-home mom Avery has built a perfect life, but at a cost. She’ll need all her family around her, and all her strength, to decide if the price of perfection is one she can afford to keep paying.

This summer, the Ashwood women must lean on each other like never before, if they are to stitch their family back together, one truth at a time...

my thoughts:

Family dramas, especially ones that focus on sisters and mother-daughter relationships are my FAVORITE. So, I was thrilled to get my hands on a copy of Maisey Yate's latest novel, Confessions from the Quilting Circle. 

The Ashwood family has secrets. All of the women harbor resentments, grief, and animosity toward one another. So, when the grandmother dies and leaves her granddaughters everything, the family finally has reason to reunite. Yep, prior to their recent loss, the sisters had been living apart and away from each other. As for their mom, well, let's just say that they were much closer to their grandmother. And, so the story begins with this family and their complicated past and present. 

Yates has written a terrific story that will pull you in right from the start. We have diary entries revealing stories the past;  a quilt that needs to be finished; and a family that is fractured, but not completely broken. Confessions from the Quilting Circle will make you laugh, cry, and smile the whole way through. What a fantastic story! I would happily recommend this book to fans of Yates and to anyone looking for their next great read - you will LOVE this book to bits!
