Comment 1:

This is a delightful story which includes many of my favourite things - patchwork and quilting, family history, botany and a murder mystery. I've done all of them except murder! Bronwen, a quilt artist, is giving a lecture when a young girl, Cat, brings her a quilt which belonged to her great, great grandma. She wants to sell it and use the proceeds to leave home. Bron and Cat together start to research the family and to remove the hexagonal papers over which the quilt is formed. These are re-us

Comment 2:

What my friend would call 'an airport read', I nevertheless enjoyed this book. With just over 200 pages and a mystery to keep the pages turning, I read it in almost one sitting. Cat, short for Caitlin, wants to sell a family quilt and we learn of the making of the quilt and the present day detective work.
