Wiggs, Susan. The Goodbye Quilt. Mira: Harlequin. Apr. 2011. c.400p. ISBN 9780778329961. $16.95. F
A cross-country trip to college turns into much more than this mother and daughter first expect. Their journey is a remembered patchwork of life that mirrors the quilt Linda Davis is making for her daughter Molly, a life as seen through the eyes of a parent. And as each new patch is pieced together, this pair relive their past and look to the future, a future they both anticipate and fear. This is a heartwarming, easy read with a twist of realism that readers of all ages will enjoy. Great for daughters to give to their mothers and vice versa. VERDICT Wiggs (Lakeshore Chronicles) will not disappoint her fans with this classic tale of growing up and moving on. Readers of Marie Bostwick (A Single Thread) or Emilie Richards (Wedding Ring) will also love this one.Debbie Haupt, St. Charles City/Cty. P.L., MO
